Five Benefits Of Daily Goal Journalling

Last Update: April 06, 2014

Daily goal journalling is a valuable tool I discovered a short time ago, I have been using it to my advantage to cultivate my personal strength's and excel more in all areas of my life. Goal's are very important.

Goal journalling has become such a valuable tool in my personal development journey and has reaped so many benefits in my life so far, I just felt I had to share some information on it with you again today.

Lately I noticed a lot of goal talk within the community that lead's me to percieve a lot of people are really not taking goal setting seriously, I can tell by the word's used in sharing their goal's word's like, try to, I hope I can, maybe if I can make enough to pay my bill's I'd be happy with that, and that's just to mention a few. To me that is only wishing for something or claiming an entitlement to it, but it certainly is not goal setting.

Now before you go thinking, who does this guy think he is coming off with an attitude of holier than thou? My answer is, You, I'm you. I have been in your shoes you see. I speak from personal experience. I know what I'm talking about when it comes to goal's and I want to share these few tips with you, my only intention in sharing this information with you is that I know if you put these tips to work, you will reap many benefit's and it won't take long to see positive results. Moving on to the five benefits of daily goal journalling.

  1. Fresh idea's springing up in my thinking process related to my goal is the first benefit I became aware of when I began goal journalling. I have since discovered that this happens to everyone who immerse's themselves into achieving a goal and keep's a daily journal of it.
  2. An action oriented mindset is the second benefit of daily goal journalling I began to notice, I became more consciously aware of the action steps I needed to take daily and I felt more confident in carrying them out, because of this a lot of guess work can be eliminated from the equation.
  3. Focus is the third benefit of daily goal journalling , I gradually became less of a slave to mind wandering and procrastination and am now focused on accomplishing the daily task's that will advance my goal some each day. Focus can be learned.
  4. Accountability is the fourth benefit. People without written goals leave themselves victim to all sort's of interruptions from outsides forces and time wasters. Not so for individual's with well defined goals, and an active goal journal, if we are first accountable to ourself we will be of much greater service to others.
  5. Self discipline is the fifth benefit of goal journalling, it is the cement that holds all the rest of your foundation in place, without it we are blown about by every wind. Self discipline will enable you to spot the priorities you need to be focused on now and will enable you to create your own road map to success.

A worth goal if taken seriously and with the correct tools applied, has the ability to take on a life of its own and will introduce you to undeveloped potentialities within yourself that you may not have known existed. It all begins with you. Best wishes to your every success.I welcome any comment's.

Sincerely Mike

Hello DNTL
I have a three ring binder right at my work station loaded with lot's of fresh paper and lots of pens, that way I am able to keep it in one place and not be running around looking for it, besides that I take a clip board of writing paper in my car in case I run into delay's throughout the day, if I do, I have time to think and of course that's when I get my idea's for marketing content, then at the end of the day I take my paper note's from the clipboard and insert them in my binder at my work station, it has become such a daily ritual that it is mostly on auto pilot now. Thanks again for your reply, I really appreciate you taking the time.
Sincerely Mike

And I thought I was organized, lol! That's a great way to work and like you say it becomes completely natural after a while. I'll have to find my ''ritual''. :)

Good advice. Sometimes, it gets hard to figure out which direction to follow. We should start out with a goal and picture of what we would like to see happen in the future.

Hi Kevin, it is great to be acquainted with a fellow fan of the late great Mr. Jim Rohn. Last year I purchased his Art Of Exceptional Living series, it was the best single investment I have made in myself within the last 20 years. Investing in the education I am receiving here at Wealthy Affiliate is an result of applying the education I received from Mr Rohn's training. Thank's again for your reply and my very best wishes to your success.

Yes, writing a journal isn't just for students who go to school, it's should be practiced by everyone.

Hi Jen thank you for taking the time to reply.
You are so right. If you don't know where you are going it doesn't matter what road you are on, but if you set out with a well defined goal, well then you can draw your own map. Cheers Mike
