To Journal or Not to Journal

Keeping a journal offers numerous benefits to anyone, interested in organisation. I fully realise that not everyone has the time or desire to keep a journal. Especially if you’re busy with setting up or running a business, you’ll find yourself hard-pressed to find enough time to detail every aspect of your daily life. And that’s perfectly acceptable — I don’t do that either. This being said, writing down a couple of quick notes here and there is something that everyone can benefit from, and that’s exactly why I’ve decided to include this point. A journal allows you to:

  • Keep your schedule always at an arm’s length
  • Recap important events at a moment’s notice
  • Keep track of what happened when
  • Quickly and easily assess the results of your actions

The advantages of strategic planning — How and why you should plan your days ahead of time

If you want to be successful in your life, you need to always keep things in perspective. You don’t want to fall into the trap of doing things just because “they popped up”. You don’t want to be putting out fires or rushing to meet a deadline at the last second.

How to develop Good Habits in Life

The importance of building strong habits

  • I do my morning exercise (I’m not a gym person, and I prefer to do my workouts at home)
  • Prepare my meals and snacks for the day (instead of junk food I bring some fruits to the office)
  • I have a cup of coffee (I only drink zero decaf)
  • I listen to audiobooks on my commute
  • I make sure to eat plenty of fruits, veggies and greens
  • I have my dinner at 6pm and leave a 16-hour-gap between then and my breakfast (more information on that in the resource section below!)
  • I don’t drink more than one glass of coffee
  • I don’t smoke
  • I avoid processed food and try to focus on fresh, local products
  • I step away from my laptop and turn off all electronics 60 minutes before going to bed
  • I go to bed early and make sure that I’ve got at least 7 hours of rest every night
