How osteopaths can stay organised with the bullet journal

Stay organised achieve more

The Bullet Journal Method can help osteopaths take control of their precious time, especially if you’re trying to juggle numerous things at once. If you take control of your career, you control your stress levels. 

I believe the Bullet Journal Method can help osteopaths. You’ve never seen an organisation system quite like this one. With its unique ability to keep you on track, you’ll be ticking off tasks every day. Take a risk as I did; I promise you’ll love it. 

It’s so simple to become suddenly overwhelmed being an osteopath as your mental to-do list overflows. I don’t need to tell you how important it is for any osteopath to stay organised. It doesn’t matter if you’re a clinic owner, associate Osteopath, or both; having a system to make sure you’re completing goals is fundamental.

Because if you're not progressing, what exactly are you doing?

If you’re like me, you’ve probably tried several physical and digital diaries and organisers, which get forgotten about or half-filled. Since I’m a stubborn guy, I decided to research different organisation methods. 

I needed a diary, a flexible one. Eventually, I stumbled upon the Bullet Journal Method and tried it for a year and a half.

Here’s what happened.

Beauty in simplicity

The design streamlines several processes into one by being your “to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above.” Ryder Carroll, the creator, explains that the method does three things: “track the past, organise the present, and plan for the future.”

The Bullet Journal Method will help you to:

Track the past: Using nothing more than a pen and paper, create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.

Order the present: Find daily calm by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.

Design the future: Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change.

Trust me when I say that it’s easier to watch the video than reading how it works. However, I did have to rewatch it several times, but don’t let that put you off! It’s genius!

Can it work for osteopaths?

I believe that it can be a real staple for many Osteopaths who want to excel in their careers. After nearly two years of loving this method, I recommend using these two rules. 

  1. Please keep it simple. 
  2. Check it every morning and evening. No excuses.

If you do, it will allow you to stay organised, build motivation, and force you to think about what you’d like to achieve on a small and large scale. Think about how much easier your life will be if you can structure your work effectively. 

Osteopaths can utilise the bullet journal method to stay organised no matter if they're an associate or clinic owner.


Bullet journaling my thoughts, to-do lists, and everything in-between quickly and consistently has been revelatory. It doesn’t need to be perfect or pretty; it just needs to get done. I’ve never been the type of guy to keep a diary. However, taking a few quick notes to clear my mind every day by using the Bullet Journal, it’s become something I wish I’d started years ago. Watch the video above and give it a go.
