To Help You Achieve Your Goals

I personally love to have different quotes to help keep me motivated towards different parts of my action steps when I am working towards a big goal.

As we all know with goal setting in your bujo, breaking down big goals into daily, weekly, and monthly action steps is how you really make progress. 

Once I have my action steps added to my daily, weekly, and monthly spreads I add a quote to those pages that really resonates with me and that particular goal.


As Part Of Your Bujo Spreads

Of course, sometimes we just love a quote because it makes us feel good. If you have a favorite quote or find one that makes you smile then add it anywhere you feel relevant in your bullet journal.

This could be on any habit tracker it suits, a quote that fits a particular season, or theme you add for the month ( they make brilliant monthly cover pages ), or even on the very front of your journal as your mantra for the whole year.
