    This subject might be boring for you trustees of everything political, but I've been reading that top producers in nearly every field - even those that work in the high tech world, have found that keeping a daily journal is a surprisingly effective tool to help us work through problems in our personal life or in our line of work.

    As a small business owner I frequently struggle with problems of pricing, marketing, accountability, relationships with clients, workload stress etc. Journaling 10-15 min. a day keeps me focused, motivated, organized and helps me work through problems that I can't solve when they are locked up in my head.

    I won't bore you folks with the details, but you might want to check out the links below. Everyone from students to retired people can benefit from this daily activity. 🙂

    Thanks for these links!

    Do you journal with pen and paper or with a keyboard, and do you think it makes a difference?

    I use pen an paper. Somehow the written word stays with me longer than if I typed something. My journal book is on the kitchen table, and it's my 1st task after breakfast, just before I start work. Will it make a difference for others? I'm not sure, but it does to me.

    I agree. While a computer, or tablet, etc., may make it more readable by others, that's not where its value lies. It's faster to capture fleeting thoughts longhand, you just need a pen, instead of firing your computer or laptop up, finding the right file, making sure the date is right, all that takes away from the flow of thought for me.
