Synopsis: Organize your life, record what matters, and get stuff done!
What the heck is a dot journal? It’s a planner, to-do list, and diary for every aspect of your life: work, home, relationships, hobbies, everything.
Early adopter Rachel Wilkerson Miller explains how to make a dot journal work for you—whether you find the picture-perfect examples on Pinterest inspiring or, well, intimidating. You decide how simple or elaborate your journal will be, and what goes in there:
- Lists of your to-dos, to-don’ts, and more
- Symbols that will make those lists efficient and effective
- Spreads to plan your day, week, month, or year
- Trackers for your habits and goals (think health, money, travel)
- Accoutrements such as washi tape, book darts, and more!

For any fan of journaling – this practical guide is a must have! I just recently got into dot journaling but found myself lost at the beginning not knowing where to start. Having this practical guide is a great tool for beginners and intermediate dot journalist!
Rachel Wilkerson Miller goes through different types of page spreads that can be used for dot journaling starting with the different type of planners: yearly, daily, weekly, monthly. She then goes through other different uses such as: diary use, fitness and health tracking use, list use, financial planning use, and meal planning use.
On top of page use suggestions, Wilkerson Miller also goes through the best accessories to use with your dot journal including: pens, markets, washi tape and other accessories that she thinks are essential to creating and using your own dot journal.
This book is an intensive guide into dot journaling – a new trend taking over the creative world – and it is almost as good as your dot journal itself. Bonus points: you can buy this book alone, or in a package that comes with your very own dot journal to put the books suggestions to practical use.
