three things in my journal


I remember few years back there was lot of challenging phase I encountered when I started my career as software professional.

I was finding it hard initially to cope up with work pressure and to maintain a balance between personal and professional life.

But one thing I always did was read. Read lot of books. I read Robin Sharma’s book “who will die when you cry”

Inspired by that what I did was to maintain a diary / Journal. And I keep writing in that .

And what do I write?? Here are few things

  • Task list for the next day :
  • tasklist

I know we all have this smartphone. but for me this works the best .

I write target dates of completion, and hit a tick mark as and when I complete. I have tried all the best possible to-do apps in android but for me paper works the best

Well some people feel maintaining 1 app is better to have book lost or paper scattered. Left to them.

  • Good Thoughts:

I love writing good quotes. and keep referring them as it gives me motivation sometimes .

Some of the quotes I recently wrote was .”My Life is my message “ – Mahatma Gandhi

I want the world sympathy in this battle of right against might –“ – Mahatma Gandhi

Keep the gold and keep the silver, but give us wisdom.” — Arabian proverb

This keeps me inspired .

  1. Lessons I learnt today:

This is one of the important things I do before I sleep. I will write the best thing which I did today

The next I write the lessons I learned today. May be good experience, may be bad. I feel without making mistakes you will never grow

I think of what’s the opportunity I can find in every challenging situation I face and what’s the missed opportunity that I could have utilized today.

So these are 3 main things I write in my journal . This has helped me significantly in my career and in my personal life.

Folk can let me know what has helped you grow in your career. What keeps you motivated?
