I’ve been struggling recently with finding time to journal. It’s not that I even care much about chronicalling my life. I just love it when I put my pen to paper and get something out. Instead, I’ve been using Google Docs to write. And there’s a lot of positive things about holding my writing in a place I can access anywhere I have a computer–which is everywhere recently–but it’s just not the same.
But recently, I found an answer in “9 Lists to Keep Updated, and Keep Handy.” Actually, I stumbled across it…on StumbleUpon. (It seems everything cool I’ve found recently is because of that site.) I call it micro-journaling, and it’s started to change my life.
Basically, the author had a journal he wasn’t using, so he started making different sections in the journal to list out things like “Things I Want,” “Gift Ideas,” etc. The list that has been my favorite so far is ”BHAGs” (Big Hairy Audacious Goals). Maybe it’s because I just entered the grownup world and I’m about get married, but the pages have been filling up quickly.
What lists do you keep in your journals?
