Bullet journaling - an effective planification tool

29 March 2022

This event has already taken place.


Every person has felt overwhelmed once in their life with all the tasks they have to accomplish, especially researchers that need to manage their projects (PhD students, postdocs, professors). Bullet journaling is an effective tool for planification that helps become more efficient in task management and gives a productivity boost. This training is relevant for any person that wish to get structure in his/her tasks and daily activity and help reach set objectives. By means of presentation, discussion and hands-on experience, trainer Joëlle De Weerdt (VUB) will introduce the tool and will give practical and clear instructions to get started with your own bullet journal.
