5 reasons to journal
Many believe that keeping a personal journal is something girlish, unworthy of an adult male. Remember all sorts of American movies, where girls in a pink room painted in their pink diaries your pink view of the world. Maybe you’re a movie and not seen, but it definitely is. But in fact in Russia for centuries was made to describe life’s events in diaries. Merchants kept records, kept records artisans, priests kept records and even emperors recorded their everyday experience. All this is not at all surprising, because people often can only trust yourself and no one else. Even in war, when by ear fly the deadly missiles, the people found time for a simple conversation with themselves. After they returned home and could understand their lives as anyone else, because they had documentary proof of the experience. And that no one will take away: no TV, no generally accepted «truth», nor even you yourself, when you become weak, the old and angry. The journal is a way to fix himself in a certain stage of life. And ashamed to write it, and especially do not be lazy.
Know how to make the company successful? To establish a feedback with the customer, at least. If the Director of the company perfectly understands the desires of its customers, then everything will be in openwork. The same statement is true for the people of the state, those who rule us. If the President, king, even the dictator understands his people and gives him what he wants, then his power will be a long and successful reign. It seems everyone agrees. But your body, your mind and your soul are different from that of the state? You yourself are in a space that also have to be known. And to do that, it is necessary to establish feedback. The easiest way to do this is to start journaling.

3. Your reflection
Some say that people never change. But those people who say that just don’t notice the passage of time. Changes are imperceptible, they are difficult to see, if you watch a person every day. Even its transformation is not easy to detect, but perhaps only in cases when you have a portal to the past that opens your eyes to what you were before. This portal can be your diary, but with one small condition: you have to be honest with records, and that means to be honest with you. Write what you think. Describe your lifestyle, goals and desires. Analyze what direction your personality. Why are you devolving, maybe everything goes on as usual, and change nothing.

Aren’t you curious to know about what was found the meaning of life your grandfather?

Boldly discarded all the world’s noise, all the necessities that you threw throughout life, and write what is written. The story of your life is not as boring as you think.
