We get it - a bullet journal is meant to be used in an analog format, but we needed a digital version that followed a similar set of principles. Over the years, I've purchased several journals, but the habit never stuck. I was busy, life got in the way, and I forgot to write.

I became tired of this, so I built a digital solution for busy people who want the benefits of structured reflection, planning, and prioritization but haven't been able to make the paper journaling habit stick.

Part 1: The Daily Log

The planner is your command center for winning the day. As the same suggests, the daily planner is a place to see meetings, tasks, routines, and goals in one place. It's like the daily spread for those who use the BuJo method. You can see how it all works in the video below:

Friday integrates with tools you already use, like Google Calendar, Outlook, Todoist, Asana, Microsoft To Do, Trello and pretty much all the other tools you might use. Instead of writing this down, we import your work automatically!

There's a few other things you should know about the daily log (planner):

  • You can download the planner as a chrome extension and see this information whenever you open a new tab in the Google Chrome Browser.
  • You can create focus time blocks and literally block distracting apps and websites. Friday will automatically update your status in Slack and also block distracting websites, so you can get more things done. It's like time-blocking on steroids.
  • You can also see the weather, pulled from your current location!

We tried to incorporate principles from bullet journaling here. For example, you can rapid log your todos right from this view. If you don't end up getting to a task, you can "push" it to the next day. You can see an example below!

Additionally, you can assign a due date for a task in the future and you won't see it until that day arrives. Check out this article if want a larger selection of daily planner apps to see how Friday compares.


Part 2: Habit Tracker

Friday builds off of the planner with customizable routines, which are habits of prioritization and reflection. You can create a variety of habits that will help you reflect, plan, and prioritize your life and work. Feel free to pick a template or create your own customized habit from scratch.

The most important thing you should know about routines is the following:

  • They are structured (with a variety of questions/prompts)
  • We handle all the reminders (so you don't forget)
  • They run on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly, whatever you choose). Here, you can see how easy it is to customize:

Above is an example of an emoji question you can ask yourself to gauge sentiment, but there are other question types available, or you can pick a free-form option and write.

The key here is that Friday handles all the heavy lifting, so you can focus on building a habit of reflection, planning, and gratitude.

Part 3: The Index

As you create routines in Friday, you will be able to see a running log of entries on the homepage feed. I've included a screenshot of how this looks below:

For example, in Friday, I've created a personal routine for myself where all the responses rollup into an index. I'm able to see a running log to my responses, like:

  • Current Mood
  • What's going on?
  • Did you read today?
  • What are you thankful for?

I enjoy looking back through past responses and seeing entries from the past. I'm sure you will too!

Part 4: Automatic Insights

The next aspect of the Friday digital bullet journal is that we automatically compile stats on the fly. For example, if you have a yes/no question for routines (habit tracker), we will automatically create charts and graphs so you can track your progress over time.

This is important as it reinforces the habit and helps you establish streaks. Remember, the goal of any solution is to create healthy habits and improve productivity, otherwise, you will not capture the benefits of journaling.

Part 5: The Future Log

Next up, we have the future log. The future log is where you can store tasks that don't have a particular date assigned. You can see how this looks below.

If you assign a date for a particular task, it automatically is sent to the day that you need to accomplish it by and is removed from the future log to keep things clean!

Part #6: Mood Tracking

Friday also offers the ability to track your mood everyday. You can easily recap your day and tell Friday when you were most productive (morning, mid-day, afternoon, evening) and how you felt. In the future, we will automatically recommend ways to improve your productivity and it's based on your history of responses!

Part #7: The Weekly Spread (Coming Soon!)

Right now, we don't have a weekly spread view, but we are working on it! You will be able to easily see your meetings and tasks together so you can do weekly planning sessions with ease!

Absolutely wonderful application to manage your time and be productive!
