Journaling for the business – and beyond

That task “make an entry page for all-things-journaling” has been sleeping long enough on my personal backlog-ish list. After my first remote talk in 2020 at Agile Monday Nueremberg (#AMNUE) I did a crazy thing: I JUST STARTED this page. 😉

Expect frequent changes to happen here. Some topics will evolve into separate articles or pages. As always, I love to hear your feedback, requests and thoughts – contact me over one of the channels you find on my business page respectandadapt.rocks

The most popular articles are:

  1. my series on journaling (start here)
  2. the one about habit building in the context of journaling
  3. my series with 10 reasons on Why NOT to start Bullet Journaling (start here)

Also, I suggest to have a look at the articles in following tags:

  1. journaling: https://notebook.cosima-laube.de/blog/tag/journaling/
  2. habits: https://notebook.cosima-laube.de/blog/tag/habits/
  3. retrospectives: https://notebook.cosima-laube.de/blog/tag/retrospectives/

Within those tags I already shared a bunch of thoughts and experiences about journaling. Also there are some pitfalls I dealt with successfully good enough during my journaling journey.

On the different journaling variants

I created a new separate article with an overview of different methods for written self-reflection.

It aims to help you choose a (new) journaling book or decide to try out a different style – because different situations in life, different contexts and different experiences require different, individual approaches.

Possible Journals to start with…

Type ‘Guided free-style’
