Bullet Journal: The Evening Reflection

Last update 18/03/2021


Hello Zen Organizers,

In the Beginner's Guide to Bullet Journal, I mentioned the importance of doing an evening reflection to integrate your BuJo into your life.

This reflection allows you to go over the entries of your daily log and update them. But most importantly, it's a moment to reflect on your tasks, assess your progress on your projects and goals, and make sure you're doing things that are meaningful and bring you closer to the life you truly want.

And to help me with that reflection, I've gathered, throughout the years, questions I like to ask myself. Of course, I don't go through each of these questions every day. I usually choose one or two, and I reply to them mentally. Sometimes, I also write down my thoughts if I feel the need to do so.

Day Overview

  • Did I use my time for things that really matter to me?

  • Why am I working on X project?

  • Why is task X important or a priority?

  • Is X task still relevant and useful?

  • What has been on my mind?

  • What interesting conversations did I have?

  • What felt meaningful today?

  • What can I improve?

  • What have I learned today?

Feelings and Mood

  • How did I feel today?

  • Why was I stressed?

  • Why is X irritating me?

  • What made me smile?

  • What has been happening in my body?

Goal Progress

  • Did I make any progress on one of my goals today?

  • What prevented me from dedicating time to work on my goals?

  • How could I make more time to work on them?

  • Am I on track?

Life Assessment

  • What am I grateful for today or in general?

  • What are the most important things to me?

  • Who do I want to be in the future?

  • What do I want to achieve?

  • Am I on the way to reach my dream life?

Whether or not you use a Bullet Journal, I think that doing a daily evening reflection is a great habit to implement. If you don't assess your actions, your goals, and your life regularly, it's easy to get sucked up in the urgency of life. As a result, you never take some time to look at the bigger picture to make sure you're headed in the right direction. But these moments of reflection are crucial if you want to be in charge of your life.

Therefore, this process and these questions can be beneficial even if you use a classic planner or a digital organization tool.

Life is too short to live it unintentionally, so start making sure you're making the most out of it!
