The Bullet Journal by Ryder Carroll
I loved this book so much. It was one of those books that got me on the “right” path. Even though I don’t technically strictly follow the bullet journal method, I have learnt a lot of fundementals.

So, I have been in the search of a tool that will help me with designs. One of the outliers that I am dying to try out is TailwindUI, but currently can’t afford it. I am saving to buy it soon. In the meantime, I have been looking into these:
Other useful resources in web design:

- deckof for carrds hand-picked collection of inspirational carrd.co sites
- NoDesign A collection of tools for developers who have little to no artistic talent.
