It would be great to remember what we were doing or thinking a week ago. It would be even better if we could not forget six months ago. There is just too much going on in our lives to remember what we had for dinner last night. But, knowing these events in our lives can help us grow, and there’s no better way to do that than via journaling.
- Reduce Mistakes
There is no way to eliminate mistakes. However, recalling what mistakes you made and what you did about them can go a long way in helping you reduce those mistakes. Write down your personal and professional events in a journal to recall them in the future.
Probably the most significant benefit of journaling is what you learn about yourself. When you read back about your challenges and accomplishments, you can recognize areas you need to focus on and take pride in your achievements. You can still do all this without a journal, but most people forget much of what they have done and why.
- Help Others
When you start to grow, you can help others do the same. Journaling can be your source of inspiration to help others. You can even use passages to show the people you help. You do want to let them write their journals, however. Still, showing what you have created from time to time can inspire them.
- More Than Just Words
You can journal with a notebook and pen. However, you can tie in graphics, videos, audios, and other media types by using a computerized version. You are limited only by your imagination. The more of these types of media you incorporate, the better. Besides, it can be fun to produce a journal in this fashion. You can choose to print out hard copies and store them in a notebook if you’d like.
- Let the Format Evolve
Currently, no journaling police will come and take you away if your format is not correct. There is no valid format. Just start creating, and the structure will begin to evolve as you develop it. You will notice what works and scrap what doesn’t. Don’t restrict yourself. Just create and then make changes as you progress.
- Revisit Your Journal
While there is some value in simply recording your journal, you’ll get more out of it if you review what you have created. It will give insight into where you were at that moment in your life.
- Measure Your Progress
When you revisit your journal, compare where you were previously to where you are now. Are you happy with the progress? If not, what is it that is holding you back? Look for clues in your journal and construct ways to get where you want to be. Sometimes, it can be slight changes that make significant differences later on.
Well! That’s it until next time, please stay safe, and keep the faith.
