Journaling your way to success
Did you know there are 25,480 days in a 70-year lifetime? If you do one productive thing everyday, you will have completed 25,480 productive things in a lifetime. A blog article per day – 25,480 blog articles in a lifetime. A video per day – 25,480 videos. The number seems like a lot until it doesn’t. Especially when you realise that doing one productive activity every day is not an easy task.
Journaling or writing a diary has existed since the 2nd century AD, fans of Marcus Aurelius on YouTube will attest, and perhaps is an even older activity. It can serve many purposes. It can be your imaginary friend witnessing your life, allowing you to understand yourself better. It can be used to improve your sleep and mental health. It can also be a personal organiser, reminding you to focus on what is important.
The Bullet Journal Method is a book that you may find useful which describes a specific method that you can leverage to improve your productivity.
Journaling can be a way to organise your thoughts and focus on the next constructive thing to do. As long as you can cultivate the habit of writing down your plans and then reading them again the next day, journaling may well change your life.
May you have unlimited days and unlimited nights.
