Have you wanted to keep a journal but didn’t know where to start or what to do to make the habit stick? Have you wanted to gain all of the benefits of journaling like understanding yourself and others better, learning about yourself, connecting cause and effects in your life, and passing on your legacy to loved ones, but couldn’t keep with a daily writing regimen?

We’ve discussed how journaling can help you become a better person, but you need to be consistent with it. You can’t be sporadic with it. You must take the time (and make the time) to put your thoughts, ideas, and reflections on paper so that you can hit that next level.

There are plenty of reasons to keep a journal:

  • To complete and compare your GTD Weekly Review;
  • To capture moments for your children and grandchildren to share;
  • To foster gratitude and goodwill within yourself (and to others);
  • To keep focused on what you want and how you are getting there;
  • To reflect;
  • …and many more.

If you’ve wanted to start building a journaling habit, no matter if you plan on using a digital or analog platform, we’ve created a new Lifehack Lesson that will help you do just that.

There’s no doubt that sticking to this daily habit of journaling can be difficult, but with this Lesson you can gain the benefits of learning about yourself as well as passing your story on to others by building this habit in just 28 days.

You can get instant access to today’s Lifehack Lesson for free until August 22, 2012. And if you want to have access to all of the Lessons we have to offer, you can subscribe to Lifehack Lessons for only $4.99 a month.

By building a journaling habit, you’ll find that you’ll be giving yourself a better chance at a more focused and fulfilled life. Give it a try — you might be surprised at the results.
