The Superhero Success Journal
Superheroes acknowledge their victories, learn from their mistakes, and acquire knowledge. They're also efficient and focused with their time. I guess you have to be when you live a double life. Ha ha, just kidding...maybe. However, we want to use our time wisely so we can build meaningful relationships, participate in our favorite hobbies, and go on spontaneous adventures.
This is where the Superhero Success Journal can help. The journal is divided into four sections.
The first section is a reminder to read a minimum of 30 minutes a day. I recommend choosing reading material that is either related to your career, business, or personal development. However, it's also good to read for entertainment too. Reading is good for your brain, can help spark creativity, and increase your knowledge. If you fall short of your 30 minute goal during the week, you can make up the time on the weekend. Check off the box when you accomplish your reading goal for the day. I was reminded of the importance of reading every day from an online course by Jon Goodman of the Online Trainer Academy.
Section two is reserved for reviewing your day. Identify three things that went well and/or that you are grateful for. You may have done this before in a gratitude journal. If something didn't go well, what did you learn from it? How can you do things better next time? The lessons learned from failures may be more valuable than the things that actually went well. However, it's good to celebrate your victories and acknowledge the beautiful moments in life too. This will help you develop a positive outlook on life, an optimistic attitude, help build your confidence, and increase your self esteem.
Section three is dedicated to your action plan for the next day. List three things that you are going to accomplish tomorrow. For one, it helps create focus. Author Jim Collins said, "If you have more than three priorities, then you have none." If you have too many priorities, you become scattered and overwhelmed. Breaking projects down into three manageable tasks, makes them easier to accomplish, and it feels good when you finish them. It will create momentum, like a snowball rolling down a hill. Secondly, creating the list helps get the information out of your mind so you can clear your head and get a good night's sleep. Jon Goodman of the Online Trainer Academy sent me a 3-a-day journal as a gift. I've found this strategy extremely useful, so I incorporated it into the Superhero Success Journal.
The last section is available for free writing. You can write about anything you want. Writing allows you to be creative, express your feelings, reduce stress, stay focused on your goals, and it's good for your immune system. I recommend taking advantage of this space. Writing can be a very powerful tool in the superheroes arsenal.
