Bullet Journal for Meetings

After a month of trying it out, I am finally sharing my bullet journal for meetings setup. This is a super quick setup, focusing more on functionality. I like to infuse creativity in all of my layouts and setups but this notebook is truly all about functionality – except for maybe the stamping! This is also a new one for me since I am using a traveler’s size notebook. I share the video setup over on YouTube if you want to check that out. Otherwise, let’s get into it!

The Setup

After making a quick cover page, I use the following pages to setup an Index. I used 4 pages in total for my Index but, if I need more space, I will cut a tab in the journal where I setup my new Index. On my Index page, I will be writing down the page number, who the meeting was with and the date. I have a few recurring meetings so having the date will make sure I find the right meeting.

For the notes pages themselves, I am stamping a few headings: meeting, date, objective, topics, action items and notes. I feel like many of these are self explanatory, although objective and topics could be seen as similar or the same. For my recurring meetings, the objective is always the same – weekly or biweekly meeting, where a number of topics may be covered. While I’m taking notes, I can identify the action items right away and jot them down. Currently, I am only using 2 pages for this setup. If I need more, I will just go to the next empty page and keep writing.

With that said, since I am stamping, I setup a few pages at a time. So if I have to page through a number of pages, I’ll just number it and add that to the index. And yes, with Archer and Olive notebooks, you are adding your own page numbers.

My Why

I can already hear some “But why?” questions and here’s why.

  1. I was losing my meeting notes in my everyday journal throughout the month and meetings were blending together, so I wanted a space just to capture important meetings.
  2. I have a metric trash ton of journals and would like to use them so that I have an excuse to buy more!
  3. And stamping – because I want to.

After using this notebook for just over a month now, I am realizing that stamping ahead isn’t always practical or possible, so I am toying with the idea of making stickers to match the stamping. I don’t want to rely on stickers too much since the notebook will become super bulky very quickly, but it could be nice for last minute situations (where I may have forgotten about a meeting/to create a layout). Setting up this notebook will have to become a part of my weekly schedule but, until then, I think I am making stickers.

Do you use a journal specifically for meetings? I remember back in my corporate days, I used a steno pad because I didn’t want to ruin those day planner/notebooks they had for us, lol! Now I use notebooks A LOT nicer and prettier than those! How times have changed! For more creative-type journal inspiration, check out my October Bullet Journal setup.

Let me know what you use for meetings and if you have any suggestions for what I could add to my bullet journal for meetings notebook. Let me know in the comments or over on socials (@natashamillercreates across platforms).

As always, thank you so much for your time today and I will see you in the next one!
