Use Your Journal To Review Your Day In The Evening

  • Seneca did most of his journaling and reflection in the evening. He examined his entire day and would go back over what he said and done, hiding nothing. Then he would ask himself whether his actions had been just and what he could improve.
  • Winston Churchill would not go to bed having not created, written or done anything that moved his life forward.

The Goals of Keeping A Journal

  • You can bring your problems to a journal. Journaling is you figuring things out and clearing your head.
  • Leave your destructive thoughts in your journal. We all carry around destructive thoughts about the things that went wrong. Instead of holding our thoughts in our head, we can put it down on paper.
  • Keep a journal for your grandchildren. Fifty years from now, our own notebooks will be around to astonish and inspire our grandchildren, unlike our tweets and Facebook posts.
  • Journal for your future self. Produce something that you can look back on and learn from.

Forget all the rules others impose about a journal. Do what works for you.

Brainstorm Ideas In Your Journal

  • Ludwig van Beethoven was rarely seen without his notebook. Even when he was enjoying a beer with friends, he might suddenly pull out his notebook to jot down an idea that just occurred to him, creating a treasure of ideas.
  • Pliny the Younger wrote that even on a hunting trip, he would think something out and make notes. He said that one should not look down on a mental activity of this kind, as "it is remarkable how one's wits are sharpened by physical exercise."

Write Down Quotes You Like In Your Journal

Write down what strikes you, quotes that motivate you, stories that inspire you for later use in your life, business, writing, speaking, or whatever it is that you do.

Tobias Wolf wrote that he had a separate journal he called a "commonplace book" that is a collection of quotes, ideas, stories and facts he wanted to keep for later. He said it made him a much better writer and a wiser person.

Use Your Journal to Prepare In the Morning

Marcus Aurelius seems to have done his journaling first thing in the morning. He would note what he was likely to face in the day ahead.

Putting his own thinking down on paper let him see it from a distance. It gave him objectivity amidst anxiety and frustrations that flooded his mind.

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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

Ghazala Begum

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!

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.
