I've been using Bullet Journal (on and off) for a year or so now. The times I've given up are when I've been trying to use it for something that doesn't fit my life/habits.

For example; I now use my calendar app for future reminders and repeating tasks - I simply wasn't checking a monthly or weekly calendar page and was missing things.

I check my calendar all the time anyway, so I simply move the tasks into my daily list when they comes up.

Are there any BuJo basics that you simply couldn't make stick, and have gone back to another method?

My future log currently has 2 items in it. Ok, my journal is only a month old, but I'm doubting I'll use the future log very much. It's handy to have that space there, though. It doesn't have to be full of info to be useful! Mostly, if something comes up for the future, it goes straight into my digital calendar with all the relevant details.

You guys may appreciate this ...

My dad saw my Bujo (with post it note tabs, list pages and calendars) and said "so basically you've made yourself a Filofax?"

I had to laugh and admit that, yes, I probably had

Plus, if I was using my filofax or my franklin covey planners or any other planner, I would just put my bullet journal in there! It's my system of keeping track of appointments and tasks and capturing information. : )

The Backlash Against Data Dogmatism
Have you noticed it as well? The tide is turning against dogmatism in data visualization, as witnessed by the increasing number of voices speaking out against a rigid approach and closed-mindedness regarding practices that are often ridiculed in knee-jerk fashion. It's about time.

I'd be interested to see how other people handle multiple projects in BuJo. 

As a freelancer I can have up to 10 projects active at any one time.

I've tried 2 approaches:

1. having a collection for each project and referencing the project name in my daily list when it needs working on
2. having all tasks lumped together in one master list (grouped by project if possible)

Neither suit my needs 100%. 

If I can, I like to spend a day/half-day working on just one project, so then it's great having all those tasks together.  However on days when I'm working across multiple projects, a single list works best. 

Does anyone else have this problem, and a solution?

Thanks

I know this article isn't technically about BuJo but there is definitely some envy-worthy notebook usage here. 
Designers from Ikea, Pentagram, Ideo, and more tell us what makes a great notebook.

this is great! I've been bullet journaling for almost a year and I've been thinking about how to make my lists more productive and not so overehelming

Fantastic service from this garage once again. They kept me well-informed on the repair time, and when it was available to collect. Friendly service and they washed/hoovered my car out as well. After 5 years of being ripped-off by a well-known garage chain, it's great to place my trust in these guys.
