The Daily Log is a central component of theBullet Journal method. It's where you record your daily tasks, events, notes, and any other relevant information. The Daily Log is essentially a dated entry for each day, and it serves as a way to track your activities, prioritize tasks, and keep a record of your thoughts. This is in contrast to theMonthly Log, which orients us in the events of a particular month, and the Future Log, which orients us in the events of a year.
How to Set Up Your Daily Log
The Daily Log is designed for day-to-day use. At the top of the page, record the date as your topic. Throughout the course of the day, simply Rapid Log your Tasks, Events, and Notes as they occur. If you don’t fill a page, add the next date wherever you left off and you’re ready to continue.
At the start of your day, write down what needs to be done and thought about for that day. After your day ends, you can sort through your entries to find which notes need to beMigrated for future reference or removed because you now realize you don’t need to do it.
What to Write In Your Daily Log
Your Daily Log will contain your day-to-day tasks, upcoming appointments and events, notes, and ideas you want to revisit later. It also contains things you want to remember for later, whether that’s for the sake of doing more research into an idea or making a note to schedule it for later or add it to another Daily Log months later. Anything that requires your attention throughout your day goes into your Daily Log.
