How often people do Journaling?

It is easy for people to journal religiously — until they have a lot on their plate. When their days are quickly filled up with work, chores, exercise, and writing. With less time and energy, it becomes difficult for them to take the time to sit and reflect. Days, sometimes even weeks, would pass between entries.

The Principle

The most brilliant advice on how to manage yourself "Pause for five minutes at the end of every day and just think about what happened that day.” Every initiative could be evaluated using two columns: What worked and what didn’t work?

This framework has proved to be working intuitive and straightforward. Best of all, it required us to focus only on the things that were within our control.

Apply this framework to journaling and you’ll be forced to think about your behavior — what was it that you did that day that worked or didn’t?

A Example of such situations.

For example, maybe you folded your laundry while listening in on a Zoom seminar. This kept you from scrolling through Twitter, so you successfully paid attention to the meeting and ticked off a household chore. That worked. But maybe you also intended to hit 2,000 steps after lunch. Instead, you delayed it to after your work day. Your last meeting took longer than expected, leaving you with no time to go for a walk. That did not work.

Gratitude corner

The upper left corner is where you apply The Three Good Things — a count-your-blessing practice that can improve psychological wellbeing. Simply start with “I’m thankful for…” and then list at least three things you’re grateful for that day.

How to do?

The one-page template consists of — you guessed it — four corners: gratitude, goal commitment, and a daily review (what went well and what didn’t). Here’s what it looks like for me:

The Four Corner Journaling.

Some people have trouble fitting the task into thier daily schedule. Or maybe they want to journal but don’t know where the start. (Anyone else overwhelmed by the multitude of writing prompts out there? What are you grateful for? Did you learn something new about yourself? What does your future self look like?) Recently, Ria Tagulinao came up with a method to make the habit more manageable. It’s called Four Corner Journaling.

“Future you” corner

The upper right corner is where you remind yourself of who you want to become or what you want to achieve. Research shows that the more you clarify and feel connected with your future self, the more you’re “willing to make choices today that may benefit [you] at some point in the years to come.” In this section, write “2021 [your name].” Then write down what you hope to become by the end of the year.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
