A calendar-based journal.
Today is the day I start the 2008 edition of my handwritten journal. Why today? It’s the first day on my Arizona Highways 2008 Engagement Calendar.
Back in the old days, before I started blogging, I used to use a week-at-a-glance calendar like this one to record a few notes about things going on in my life. I usually started off the project in earnest. Sometime during the year, I’d forget to make entries or lose the book or just get plain old lazy. But I still have copies of some of the books. Paging through them is a fascinating look at my life. Well, fascinating for me, anyway.
Two years ago, I abandoned the project after only two weeks. How embarrassing. Last year, I didn’t try at all.
But this year, I’ll do it — with a new approach. Each day, I’ll write down three things I did or thought or saw that day. Easy enough, right? Let’s see how I do.
