I know it takes discipline to write a daily journal. I wonder ~ will I be able to maintain such an endeavor? We’ll see. I started one on the 10th of December. It’s been 10 days today. So far, so good.
The focus of the daily writing is simply to log what I’m doing ~ basically how I spend my time ~ and what’s going on around me. I decided when I started, I would omit sharing any feelings or rambling thoughts I happen to have that particular day/time/moment. It’s just the facts, Jack!
In addition to the daily journal, on December 10th I also started an excel file, recording time spent creating/working on quilts for others. This is not only for my personal information, but also for the local Texas Extension Education Association group I recently joined. They need a monthly report from members as to time spent on community service, and the other mission aspects.
The mission of the Texas Extension Education Association, Inc. is to work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to strengthen and enrich families through educational programs, leadership development and community service.
I’m using MS Word to keep the daily journal. I now click SAVE after every bloomin entry ~ already learnt the hard way to do this!!! After 3 days, I decided rather than go to the bottom for the current day, to always use the first page (which is what automatically opens up) to add the new day. Okay, did you get that? Hope so!
Do you keep a daily journal? Do you hand write or type it? How detailed do you make it? This inquiring mind would love to know!
