“Keeping a Journal of our thoughts, experiences, insights and leanings promotes mental clarity, exactness, and context. Writing good letters – communicating on the deeper level of thoughts, feelings, and ideas rather than on the shallow, superficial level of events – also affects our ability to think clearly, to reason accurately, and to be understood effectively.” Steven Covey Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People
This quote may be very timely. I have read about the benefits of writing in journal and I have started many a journal. Which I am dedicated to for a few days and then it goes by the way side. Finding the journal months or even years later I wonder what happened. Lack of discipline happened or maybe it is lack of routine. In a busy busy life with constant changing and adjusting schedules, writing a journal is one of those things that has not become a habit. To read that the benefits include thinking more clearly and to reason accurately focusing a bit hard to develop this habit is something I should probably do.
With the path of personal development I am with my mentors I believe the time is right to really focus on putting pen to paper and writing a journal. Along with meditation a journal is one of those things that helps you to clear your mind and focus on what is important. The education that I have undertaken through my mentors is assisting not just on business, but personal development areas such as meditation, concentration, and focus which ultimately will help in business and personal.
