Jim Rohn – How To Use a Journal
Do you keep a journal?
Statistically it is over the top! Countless times over the years when meeting “Jim Rohn’s greatest fan” I have been impressed with how many were the real deal; the ones who followed Jim’s pearls of wisdom and went on to achieve great things and yes, had made a decision to be a collector and student of great ideas (including their own) by keeping a journal.
A journal that would chronicle their own personal story; their family, their victories, their challenges, their GOALS and DREAMS, their seminar and sermon notes, their own ideas and thoughts — that they could review now and in the future — and create one of the more priceless collections for themselves and their families as the years roll on.
Jim tells the story of someone breaking into his RV while on a trip, and his only major concern was if they had taken his journals, not the furniture or the TV, but the thing that truly was not replaceable, a piece of his life – his journals .
2008 is almost here…, what a perfect time to begin, renew or continue this simple, yet invaluable habit, so at the end of 2008 you simply add your own book of your life’s collection of events, stories, ideas and goals to your library and then go to work with a fresh new journal for 2008.
Here’s a little from Jim Rohn on keeping a journal the past 40+ years:
“Be a collector of good ideas, but don’t trust your memory. The best collecting place for all of the ideas and information that comes your way is your journal.”
“The reason why I spend so much money for my journals is to press me to find something valuable to put in them.”
“There are three things to leave behind: your photographs, your library and your personal journals. These things are certainly going to be more valuable to future generations than your furniture!”
