A five-year journal is a tool you can use to record and easily compare five years of your life at a time in just one glance. The daily writing commitment in a five-year journal is minimal, but the reward is abundant. These journals are the perfect tool for people who hate to write. You heard me. If you hate to write on a daily basis, but want to record your history and your thoughts quickly and easily, a five-year journal is just what you need.
If you know me, you know that I love lists. I often encourage my clients to write lists. This is an excerpt from my book, Eating An Elephant: Write Your Life One Bite at a Time:
One man in my class did nothing but make lists. Each day for more than thirty years, he created an accounting of whatever captured his attention for the day—the price of gas, a movie he saw, his wife’s birthday present, a new business that opened, items in the news, how much he paid for bread. Some days his list had twenty entries, other days only two or three. But he filled his pages consistently in a way that worked for him, and this small action of making a daily list resulted in a wealth of historical and personal information.
Isn’t that wonderful? Imagine having that kind of data upon which to draw in your writing. Imagine how connected you will feel to the world around you when you take the time to notice and record what you see and experience. You can do that, and it’s not too late to start.
