As a teenager, I kept a diary for 4 years. Not only was it terrific fun to read back on, but the discipline of writing down what I had done that day and how I felt was beneficial in many ways.
As I became older, diarising my life wasn’t a priority!
However, I now realise that I have been keeping a ‘diary’ of my business for several years.
I prefer to call this journaling.
Journaling involves keeping notes on a daily basis about:
The benefits are enormous.
- I’m able to trace back to where a decision was made, and why I made it.
- I have a record of client feelings, issues and actions
- I can account for my time and effort
- I’m able to see how productive I am (or not)
- I have a record of business development
Do you keep a record of your activities on a daily basis? Can you account for your own productivity?
