10 things I learned from reading my 2017 journal.

Since I decided to start Journaling, I also decided that I’ll read my own Journals to keep tabs on myself. As the saying goes: “Pen and paper do not forget”.

I feel like I’ve been sleeping all the years before 2017. Feels like I haven’t done much with my life. Journaling is one way to be awakened as to never forget what I did and how I progressed.

I’m learning a lot about myself. These are the top 10 things I gathered after reading through my Journal entries in 2017.

  1. I realized how Important the art of communication is, particularly, listening.
  2. Always write slower and neater, it helps to be able to read things in future.
  3. My health routines improved dramatically.
  4. Do not Journal todo lists, they do not make sense in the future.
  5. I Must read my Journals, If you don’t you may as well stop writing. It is for self-improvement.
  6. It was a year of financial mindset shifts: zero debt, living more simplistically lastly deciding what is important and spending on that.
  7. Accountability and Routines are valuable keys to success.
  8. The words of Dave Ramsey and Jim Rohn mentored me.
  9. Hardly wrote about my walk in Christ, needs urgent attention.
  10. Having multiple, themed, journals have helped me write a lot.

I hope to continue Journaling.
