JOURNALING


Roman philosophers Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius all claimed that journaling was the path towards knowing the Self and improving it. On their good advice, Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt kept journals. Much of what we know of their lives we learn the same way they did – we study their journals.

Journaling will show you the truth about yourself if you can tackle it with honesty and sincere reflection.

But you need a system.

This guide is all about how I get the most of journaling and how you can, too.


“Exercise. Sleep. Meditate. Keep a journal.”
-Every self-help guru ever


“Exercise. Sleep. Meditate. Keep a journal.” This is the advice you get from every self-help and personal development guru.

How many of them then teach you how to exercise, meditate, or get the recommended eight hours of sleep you need?

Journaling is no different.

If you start lifting weights without any training, you’ll waste a lot of time. You might even get injured.

When you sit down to meditate without instruction, you’re not going to get much out of it. Your thoughts will wander as your monkey-mind tries to insist it is in charge here (and tries even harder to get you to identify those discursive thoughts as your “Self.”)

If the purpose of your journal is to truly investigate your life and explore your “self” -rather than simply being a Diary- you’re going to need a strategy and wrestle with uncomfortable questions. That can be hard when you’re looking at a blank page for the first time.
