I am a Swedish teacher, educator and PhD student trying to construct an Obsidian practice that can help me structuring my thoughts and life.
Since I am new to this community, please inform me if I have placed the question in the wrong section etc.
I have used Obsidian on-and-off for a while but now I am trying to more systemically incorporate it with my bullet journaling (BuJo) practice, which mostly focuses on managing (and enjoying) time, projects and areas of responsibility both at work and outside work, while balancing productivity with mindfulness and well-being.
In pursuing this, sometimes prefer going digital with Laptop/iDevices and other times I want to be analog using my BuJo-style notebook.
I’m trying to set up a hybrid BuJo-system where I can switch between different ‘modes’, stretching from fully ‘analog/physical’ (physical notebook) to semi-digital (iPad/Notability-app, handwriting w apple pen) to fully digital (Obsidian).
My most importand wish is a practice to set up rolling tasklists (weekly/monthly etc) a’ la the “Alastair method”, usable for brain-dumping. That is, a note in Obsidian with colums (or squares) on one side (let’s say left) and vertical rows for text on the other (let’s say right).
In the note I need to be able to write upcoming tasks on the rows (right side) and dots (.), slahes (/), X’s (x) and arrows (<), (>) in the corresponding squares on the left side. Or crossout the intire row (i.e., both the task-text and the corresponding columns in the same (vertical) row), if I decide on not doing the task at all.
Finally, this will need to be rather frictionless to setup and edit repeatedly when tasks occur or life happens, otherwise it will not happen…
Have anyone done anything similar or have any ideas?
(If the “Alastair method” is unfamiliar, I recommend checking it out, e.g. here:
I have searched the forum for ideas of digital/analog BuJo’ing using both a notebook and Obsidian. I found a post on a plugin idea/request for BuJo’ing in Obsid but little more.
I also searched for “Alastair” without sucess.
So every idea and suggestion for a hybrid BuJo using notebook and obsidian BuJo-system would be appreciated
