The 5-Minute Productivity Journal: Little Challenges To Spark Motivation & Empower You by Jennifer Webb
This has been a great way to start my day.
Because I run my own Eco farm full time, I have a very hard time separating work from home. My farm is also my home and nearly one half of my cabin is my office. I work harder now than I ever did when I was an employee & I make half the income. I am highly motivated, but also highly stressed, as I am one person wearing way too many hats. I have to force myself into downtime. I learned to start doing this about three years ago as I was starting to burn out and totally loose my 💩. Key words: forced downtime. I still have to do it, force it. It's nuts.
This journal lets me sit down & work through the events of my prior day & my satisfaction level while also allowing me to record my goals for the current day. It asks things like, What would make today great?, Yesterdays act of self care., & even a Vent/Rejoice/Plan/Note/List. Heck, it even has you record your location which is kind of fun if you want to look back on it.
Unlike some guided journals, this provides plenty of room for writing & is of a decent size. No cramped handwriting! There are also what the author calls "Little Challenges" for each day. From super easy, "Tell someone you love them." To more challenging, "Know someone in your company who rocks at a job you want to do? Offer to buy them lunch in exchange for an informational interview. Success leaves footprints that you can follow!"
Overall, this is a great book for anyone needing motivational kindness to succeed rather than a drill Sargent.
