As with starting any new habit, the journal writing challenge is not without its own… challenges. One of the challenges I’ve found with journal writing by hand in my Evernote Moleskine notebook is that it doesn’t really let you add things like photos or clippings. For example, the other day I was at the park with my daughter and we were having a blast. At that moment I wanted to snap a photo and include it in my journal entry for the day, but then I realised that it couldn’t be done. Sure I could have printed the photo and then stuck it in, but then in a few months or years the photo would stick to the opposite page and rip. Not cool.
Have you ever been faced with a scenario that has really made you stop and think about who you are and the way you live? We go about our everyday lives as though nothing will ever change; as though what is now has always been and will always be.
The pace of daily life is incredibly fast. Often we do whatever we can to keep up, to get by, to be able to pay the bills, life can very quick pass us by. In fact, this has never been more true! With technology in our pockets wherever we go we often have our heads buried in a mobile phone and don’t even look up. There is a whole world flying by that we’re missing out on.
We’re all short on time and always looking for that next hack to make our tasks that much faster to process and complete. If you use Evernote then you’re already on your way to improving your productivity, but you still wanting more, aren’t you?
