People tend to find new, different things exciting. Humans get a dopamine rush when they learn about something new and different, and are able to picture the ways in which this new thing could help them in the future. And yet something as simple and old-fashioned as journaling is routinely overlooked and ignored. It may not be flashy, but it gets results.


Simply the act of writing something down is not only going to give you a much more full understanding of the subject you are writing about, it will also make you far more likely to actually implement it. There is something incredible about the act of writing, especially goals, and it causes humans to operate in ways that facilitates the accomplishment of those goals.

Notes on the Show:

  • Journalling is a tool that the greatest minds of history have used
  • Men can be resistant to the idea of journaling, because it is considered passive. But journaling is in fact active, not passive
  • Over time, a journal becomes a “success log” that you can go back to and review
  • Your own notes, whether about books or “ah ha” moments, will resonate much deeper with you than something somebody else wrote
  • One of the best ways to learn something in a way that will really stick is to talk about it, and teach it if you have the opportunity
  • Try to keep in mind the amount of time you have left, so that you don’t waste it
  • Saying that you don’t have the time to do things like journaling is like being on a road-trip and saying you don’t have time to get gas
  • Save yourself first. Prioritize your health and wellbeing, so that you can take care of others
