Power of Journaling and Leadership

 

One of the best ways I know of to process ideas and feelings as well as use for decision making clarity is journaling. Do you journal? Even if you don't think of yourself as a writer, much less write well, you don't have to be. 

The power of journaling enables you to treat your mind as a sponge that needs to be wrung out.

When there's so many thoughts running through your mind and processing any one of them feels like a challenge to actually get through, journaling is a way to get those thoughts out of your head and onto paper. It's not about how well you write, if there's errors, or if it's organized. It's not for anyone else, but you. In fact, the more you can silence the inner editor and critic and just allow whatever to come out and get on the paper, you'll feel lighter.

Like a release of sorts.

And if you take some time in between journaling and unloading what was on your mind and allow some space for it to just sit on the page, when you return to it a few hours, a few days or even weeks later, you'll glean new insights that were difficult to discern earlier. You'll feel clearer and more decisive and focused on your path forward.
