On Keeping a Journal

Derek Sivers on keeping a journal:

You’re doing this for your future self. Future you will want to look back at this time in your life, and find out what you were actually doing, day-to-day, and how you really felt back then. It will help you make better decisions.

I keep wanting to do this. And I’ll start. And it will feel great. And I’ll do it for a couple of days.

And then I’ll stop.

Because there isn’t enough time. Or someone won’t stop talking me to long enough for me to collect my thoughts.

Wait. Did I just journal?
