I've written before that I am a big fan of making up rules for my bullet journal. After all, it's a system for productivity. If you take the time to develop it as a system, you ought to be more productive, right? I used to think that meant I had to follow a complex system of listing and managing tasks while constantly coming up with ideas for new tasks to complete. I'm really great at thinking up new tasks to do! I'm not so great at accomplishing them as quickly. My struggle was one of blank boxes. After a couple of weeks in my clogged system, I had a very long list of tasks that I was simply rewriting at the beginning of the day. The sheer weight of it overwhelmed me and I would only end up getting a couple of things done. My long list of boxes was still empty, I had new tasks to add for the next day, and I didn't even want to open my bullet journal after a while.
