Ep 134: Journals Aren’t For Everyone
I don’t really know how to describe today’s episode. It’s like a Seinfeld episode, where it’s about one thing but it’s really about something else. The specific thing we’re talking about is why you shouldn’t feel like you need to buy a journal just because everybody else is doing it. Even if you do use a journal, you should still listen today because it goes much deeper than that.
My wife had to tell me to stop buying journals and planners at one point because I had so many. There was a predictable routine whenever I bought planners, so I share this with you – it’s the reason why I don’t buy them anymore.
Part of the reason I kept feeling the need to try new planners is because everybody in the online space is talking about how they plan their day. Quite honestly, you can be a successful seven-figure business owner without using a planner at all.
You need to have plans, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution. There are some people that just aren’t wired to use a daily planner, and I think it’s even more prevalent among visionary entrepreneurs. I’ll fill you in on the way I keep myself on track, no planner required.
If you’re one of those people who worries that you’re not doing things the same as some of the big-name people, it’s okay! As long as you’re getting the work done, that’s all that matters. You don’t have to do something just because other people do it. I finish off with the story of how I found my ideal morning routine.
