I have loved the physical style of the journal from day one. The cover, the page size, the structure. Using the product has been trickier. The instructions and guidelines are clear. My life less so. I have adapted the book to me. I love the reflections. I just have trouble managing my day the way it is set up to be. That said, I find myself improving on managing my day with it. I am on my second journal - the third is waiting in the wings. With each one I am using my time better. My life enthusiasm is improving. It's working. I really am coming to own the product.
So far so good. Haven’t used it for a week yet but making progress
I've read all the greats of time management and personal development and tried their approaches - this book and the framework upon which it is built is the easiest and simplest to adopt and to maintain. By focusing on a 13-week sprint (for lack of better image), I've seen marked improvements in my goal progression. The nightly reflections and weekly reviews are natural extensions of the daily use and have helped me to reflect on my life choices and decisions taken (albeit with an air of self-sadness and disappointment).
The books themselves are the most durable quality. The pages are heavy stock and can be written on using all the implements I carry about me. The cover and binding tolerates life's abuses with style and ease.
I am enjoying getting better at using this tool...thanks!
Feel much more in control of my time and life. Thank you!!
Take a look inside
The SELF journal is divided in 3 distinct sections: The Daily,
Weekly and Monthly. Each one is tailored to keep you
focused and on track for achieving your goals.
The Graduate SELF Journal is a slightly modified version for those who have already purchased a SELF Journal in the past. It will not include the paper instructions, but rather a PDF to refer to for you to get started. It's designed for those who have one big goal rather than 3 separate ones, so that you can have a clear focus over the next 13 weeks.
The Daily Structure for Success
Morning & Nightly Gratitude, Today's Targets & Goals, a 6AM-9PM daily schedule, and plenty of space for notes.
