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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
