I recently picked up journaling and I LOVE IT 🥰

2022-06-23Founder Journey

It's very unexpected as writing was one of my weakest subjects up until college

Check out michwirantono.xyz where I share my journey building Typedream! #buildinpublic

Journaling helps me:

- Reflect on what I did in the past week

- Organize my thoughts and turn it into actionable items for the following week

- Understand my feelings better (things around me are happening too quickly that I need to take a moment to process)

Reflect on what I did in the past week:

I usually take the first hour of my Monday to organize my tasks for the week. However, I don't use the last hour of my Friday to look back and see which tasks were completed, how I did on the tasks, and how I can do better

Therefore, I'd like to use the last few hours of my Friday to write about what I did, why I did it, what I learned from it, and if there are any follow ups

As a startup founder, sometimes I do my tasks only because the "team" says so or because other similar companies did it

However, as a startup founder, I should have been the one to decide what I need to do. Journaling allows me to reflect on why I did a certain thing, what I learned from doing it, and the impact of my action

Organize my thoughts:

I have this syndrome of becoming a robot that the way I work is by ticking my todo list. If I start organizing my thoughts, I will know what I'm going to do and why I need to do it

Understand my feelings better:

I hit quarter-life crisis a few months back because I was so burnt out from work. After meditating🧘‍♀️, I realized that the source of my burnout was because things around me were happening so quickly that I didn't have time to make sense of it

Let me know if you enjoy journaling too! ✍️
