#039 | Daily Journals (Notion Template)

One new actionable knowledge each week to help you take more actions and live more intentionally, all towards happiness in life ❤️

Hey friends,

In most games, there are something called the logbook.

The logbook is simple — it tracks all your actions (decisions) and results.

I never really look at the logbooks because who really wants to look at what actions they have taken in the past in a game… I just want to play the game!

But in real life, it can be useful to analyse the logbook to evaluate your actions and derive lessons from them so that you can better play the game in the future.

So… what is the logbook equivalent in the game of life?


Specifically, Life Journals and In-domain Journals.

Life journals — daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, decisions, experiments, etc

In-domain journals — tracking workouts, tracking study progress, tracking climbing routines, etc

Now logbooks are automatically created in games but in the game of life, that’s not the case 🙁

You need to manually track your data before you can even invest time into understanding it.

This is not easy.

The frictions is high.

Sometimes I don’t want to do it because I rather execute than reflecting.

But the ROI is worth it.

Reflecting leads to better execution.

This is how you become more self-aware.

This is how you become more efficient.

This is how you become more robust.

So start journalling! 🔥
