Bullet Journalling with Amanda Kendle
Monday 15 October, 1.30 - 2.30pm
Bullet Journalling is an ever growing trend and it can help you be super productive!
It's like a combination between a to do list, a planner, and a diary. It is a system that uses a method of symbols and logs to help you keep on track with everything you want to do in life, and create a record of what you've achieved - or even the books you've read and the fun you've had!
Amanda Kendle is a bit obsessed with productivity and has long been intrigued by bullet journalling, and decided to try it out.
During this talk, Amanda will show you exactly what bullet journalling is, how to set up your own system, and describe how her experience with bullet journalling has altered how she gets things done.
The session is suitable for people aged 15 years and older.
Places are limited and bookings are essential. Call 9394 5125 or visit library.armadale.wa.gov.au to book your place.
