Not Getting Enough Done? Maybe It’s Because
Your To-Do Lists Are Ugly
When Ryder Carroll first created a video tutorial for the bullet journal, a system he created to stay organized, he only needed two tools: a pen and a notebook.
Now, exactly three years later, the wildly popular bullet journal has evolved beyond the pages of the simple Leuchtterum notebook that Carroll carries with him.

The not-so-good news: Not every testimonial is created equal. While all kind words from customers are appreciated, a great testimonial is special because it comes from a place of sincerity but also feels personal, relatable, specific, and motivational.
10 Social Media Apps You Should Be Using in 2016 (But Probably Aren’t)
