What is The Habit Journal?
It's a tool.
The journal has 13 separate sessions lasting four weeks each. You start by identifying your goals. What do you want out of life? Do you have any personal development goals, health and fitness goals, family and relationship goals, money and career goals, mental and spiritual development goals? They can be big or small. Add in a dream goal. Something you always wanted for yourself, but never think about because others would laugh or try to tell you it's not possible.
Once you've identified your goals, it's now time for the real work. Pick one to work on for the session. Start thinking about what daily habits would help you creep towards this goal. If you have a goal of becoming a great motivational speaker, are your day to day actions really going to get you there? If not, you need to realign them. Instead of playing video games, start taking a class in public speaking. Instead of watching youtube, start recording yourself and making improvements. Plan your day, go through your day with these habits in mind, then reflect on how you did. At the end of the session, ask yourself how you did. If you achieved your goal, move onto the next one. If not, come back to the goal. Keep working on it. You will achieve it eventually through using the journal.
It's not rocket science.
What you do everyday will determine the life you have in the future.
It takes 5 minutes a day.
Literally. BUT...its not easy, it also takes 100% commitment.
Why use the journal?
It helps you focus on the small actions you can take today. Too many off us focus on the bigger picture and become overwhelmed with goals. When you concentrate on the small wins you can make every day, you’ll notice instant progress towards achieving your goal.
It forces you to become your own accountability partner. The journal won’t shout at you. It wont tell you you're fat. It wont phone your mum and tell her you’re not taking your vitamins. It will however make you feel accountable for your own progress and this in itself, will empower you to take action.
There is science behind it. It is scientifically proven that journaling provides you with clarity, reduces stress and provides a better understanding of yourself and your habits.
It only takes 5 minutes effort every night. That’s it. You don’t have to do anything other than plan at the start of the week and reflect at the end of the day.
You can’t turn it off. Set the journal beside your bedside as a reminder. Unlike your habit tracking app, it can’t be turned off or ignored. The basic act of putting pen to paper brings its own reward.
It’s simple. There’s not a whole lot to it. Our tagline pretty much describes how simple it really is: Track your habits, achieve your goals, change your life.
