Course overview

You’ll start by learning the benefits that journaling can provide. We will look into how entrepreneurs, actors, and successful individuals use journaling as a way to develop themselves and their careers. Next, we will take five minutes to uncover your journaling goals by doing a first journaling exercise. Through this process, you will not only gain clarity regarding your goal – which is essential for motivation – but you will also learn a first, versatile journaling technique.

We’ll move on to cover the five basic techniques. These techniques (or variations of them) are used in most pre-printed journals. They form the foundation of most journaling practices and are versatile in their use.

Now that you know your goal and technique, we will discuss the right tools. Analog vs. digital, finding the right journal, and finding the right pens are topics a lot of beginners struggle with. Instead of telling you what “is the best” I will help you figure out what is best for you!

Knowing your tools, techniques, and goals, I will help you develop a journaling habit or reflex. Reflex journaling supports you to cope with life challenges. Habit journaling helps you with daily self-development and insight.

Finally, you will learn what you can do when you lose steam or when you face writer’s block.

By the end of the course, you will have completed your first journal entry, identified your goals and techniques, and designed a habit or reflex that fits your lifestyle.
