One of my favorite bloggers, Scott Ginsberg, wrote an interesting post about Journaling… click here to check it out.
Scott gives 9 different examples of journals you could start. (Some of which could also be considered types of entries in your all-purpose journal)…
- Morning Writings
- WOM Journal
- Thanks Log
- HVA Journal
- Victory Log
- Learning Log
- ‘No” Journal
- Dream Log
- Luck Journal
All of these ideas certainly have value… it just depends on you actually sitting down and journaling.
I have found that just sitting down in a quiet place and thinking on a regular basis helps me maintain my “balance” … especially when circumstances beyond my control are wreaking havoc on my life. (I’m sure we’ve all been there!)
I also find that the act of writing things down helps me get a better perspective on the subject and, as Scott mentions in his post, it helps me deal with reality more effectively!
