“If only I could get myself to… work out more… spend less time scrolling on my phone.. focus on my work better…”
One of the most common misconceptions about replacing stubborn, persistent issues with healthy productive habits is that we “just need more willpower and discipline.”
If you find yourself constantly trying to overcome sticking points in your life (like addictions, bad habits, or a gnawing sense of anxiety that you’re not doing enough) it may not be a “willpower” issue at all.
Spending precious willpower doing the wrong things at the wrong time (or even worse, the *right* things at the wrong time) can feel like you’re banging your head against the same wall over and over.
The struggle to maintain a clear, focused mind
against the onslaught of distractions
has become a modern day superpower.
As a personal coach for the last 8 years, I’ve had the unique chance to read hundreds (if not thousands) of journal entries from my personal coaching clients around the world.
This has given me a rare glimpse into the minds and inner workings of the minds and lives of hundreds of men who are working hard to overcome addictions, old negative behavior patterns and toxic habits of thinking that keep them stuck in a rut.
In the process, I stumbled on an uncommon journaling method that “breaks the loop” of autopilot, impulsive, “hard-to-change” behaviors.
It’s a high-impact journaling method that takes advantage ofthe 2-10min pockets of time everyone has throughout their day.
It’s also helped me (and my clients who used it) dig my way out of a depression, get out of career ‘ruts’, and deal with stress, anxiety and painful emotions in a constructive & useful ways.
Actually, it’s a set of three journaling techniques that deal with the three most important ‘timelines’ of your life.
If you’ve been avoiding journaling for any reason, or have tried to journal and failed in the past, it’s probably because you weren’t taught the right way to do it.
As little as fifteen minutes of journaling per day can give you the traction you desperately need to navigate all the weird, unexpected events that happen in your life (and no, this is not a ‘dear diary’ exercise).
