Analyzing the Journals of Successful People

As many of you know, I quite enjoy keeping a journal. As years pass by and my journals pileup, I am keen to improve this habit of journal keeping. To do that, I have decided to study the journals of successful people to extract tips and wisdom you and I can use for our journal keeping.

I am quite excited about this project as journal keeping is one of the most shared habit among the successful people I have studied – through biographies, documentaries, books, etc.

Completed Analysis of People’s Journals

Here are the people whose journals I have analysed to date:

Planned Analysis of People’s Journals

Here are the people whose journals’ I hope to analyze in the near future:

I hope to be constantly updating this page as I make progress in this project of analyzing the journals of successful people.

    I’m stoked to have come across this blog as I write a journal and am inconsistent with journaling at the moment, so am interested to see how others journal to help me out.
