I’m a big fan of journaling, but over time I found that sometimes the practice was incredibly fulfilling, and other times it seemed like I was just writing for the sake of writing. Some days recording what happened seemed to help me improve my quality of life, while other days I simply didn’t get much out of it.
So I went back through tons of old journal entries, trying to find out if I could determine why some journaling days were awesome and some were meh.
What I found was that the days where I recorded what I was grateful for and the ways in which I worked on my goals were the days that journaling felt fulfilling, improved my quality of life, and helped me make progress on my goals.
That’s why I created the Goals & Gratitude journaling worksheet. It has a simple but effective formula — simply print it out, and fill it in. It’s a quick and easy way to get the most out of journaling.
