When most people think about journaling, they imagine a diary. A place where you document your thoughts, fears, and deepest secrets. However, a journal can actually be a very useful planning tool. If youâ€™ve never written in a journal, or even if you have, consider using the practice for your business.
The Journaling Habit
The first step is to create a journaling habit. A consistent time and place where youâ€™ll journal. Consider journaling first thing in the morning as you drink your cup of coffee. Itâ€™s the time when youâ€™re less distracted and able to achieve better focus and creativity.
