The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Member Chi V

I’ve only finished my 7-day streak ever today, but I want to say that I’m very happy that I signed up for 750 words. It was difficult getting to this point, but there’s really no bad or ideal time to start such a useful habit as journaling. Ever since I made it a daily habit of getting all my thoughts and feelings of the moment down onto something external, I’ve been feeling a lot lighter and more focused in how I spend my day and time. Some advice on the approach I’ve taken so far that was really successful for me: use this time also to construct what your perfect day would be and, more occasionally, check in with what your goals for the week, month, and life are (what is your best self like? how do you want to show up for others? what do you want in your life now vs. a day,week,month,year, or decade later?). this keeps the conversation with yourself productive and focused, while leaving some time to be silly or vent whatever it is that you’re feeling or going through. initially, i really struggled with using 750 words because it seemed like such an overwhelming amount to write in a fairly short period of time, but as soon as i redirected my energies outward, towards conceptualizing how i wanted to be as a person, for my relationships, and in my goals, i found myself easily meeting or overachieving this quota. for more tips/inspiration on what to ask yourself each morning via 750words, i recommend checking out brendon burchard on youtube! thank you, 750 words, for existing for people like me who is more comfortable typing than writing in a daily journal. :-)
