Do you keep a journal? It's one of the most effective ways to access your inner wisdom for success in business and life.
Some people keep a traditional Diary journal where they chronicle what happened that day.
There's the Gratitude journal where you take the time a few nights a week to list the things you are most thankful for that day--including at least one unique entry. The list might include your health, family, a job you love and that you mastered new software or scheduled a new client meeting. That programs you to focus on what's going right in your life and work. The universal law states, "What you focus on expands." An added benefit is that it often leads to a more peaceful sleep. (That is, if you also refrain from going to bed watching the TV news.)
There's the Gut Instinct journal for those who want to develop their intuition. You keep track of the decisions you make based solely on your gut instincts. It might be choosing to partner with someone new on a project or planning a trip. Looking back on these entries and seeing the success rate of "going with your gut" will encourage you to trust your instincts next time.
Then, there's the What's Up journal. On the top of the page, you write the simple question, "What's up?" and then start free writing. Keep the pen to the paper and refrain from editing or judging whatever you write. Within a few minutes, you will tap into your wise inner guidance. You'll uncover unconscious motives for some decisions you've made and gain new insights on old challenges. If a What's Up journal intrigues you, I encourage you to try it for a week or two and report back.
