The real human evolution started when the first cave painting was made, when the first story was told, when the seed of folklore was planted in and when the picture became a letter/alphabet.
What we talk (with self and others) and What we write (for self and others) is a primary medium how we interact, realize and manifest the world around.
No wonder, everyone who is worth listening to or making an impact are making To-Do lists (we suggest you also make What NOT-To-Do list) or are writing daily journals.
Starting to write a Journal was the best thing I did 3 years ago.
It changed the way I see myself, the world, my priority list, the way I run my day and more importantly my life.
Not only I started getting better at getting things done (eventually), I became better overall.
Here is my journey since then and a What I learned during that process so that you can benefit from that.
Disclaimer 01: Journal writing like everything else is a personal journey.
It may make sense to you immediately or may happen in a different context some other time
Mojo of Small Things presents ‘Why you should WRITE a Journal and a little more about writing !’
Why should you write something?
When you write something-
You make it permanent,
