A Life Worth Living is Worth Recording.

Journals aren’t just for teenager. Powerful and successful people regularly keep journals. A journal can preserve memories and serve as an emotional release. If you’ve never considered keeping a journal, reconsider.

Keeping a journal is simple:

  1. Decide on a format. Nearly any form of journal can be effective. A notebook, word processor, or dedicated journal can serve you well. You can even record your journal online. It’s entirely up to you. A blog can serve as a journal.
  2. Stick to a schedule. Try to write something at least a few times each week. Ideally, you’ll be able to record your thoughts daily. You’ll find that the journal habit is easier to create if you write each day.
  3. Keep it casual. You’re not writing a novel. You’re writing for yourself. You don’t even have to use complete sentences! Use a style that suits your wants and needs. Some days you’ll write more than others and there will be days without much to write about.

Anyone can enjoy the benefits of a journal. Choose a format that you enjoy and start writing. Keep a regular schedule. You’ll be amazed by how much you write over the years if you just write a little each day.
