For so many years while growing up, I would go to the store and pick out the perfect journal to write in– one that I felt reflected some aspect of my personality. One that I would be excited to write in. And I would do really well at writing in that journal every day for a few weeks, until eventually, I would forget about it. About a year later, I would once again get the inspiration to write in a journal, buy another one, and repeat the cycle, without any goals or strategies for journaling in place. This kind of struggle is very common. You might have a stack of similar, barely used journals tucked away in your attic as well. The problem with this kind of journaling is that there is no method to it, nothing to keep you accountable, and no way to truly measure your progress.
Lucky for us, Griffin Hill offers the High Performance Journal. The High Performance Journal is designed with the principles of semantic priming, question-behavior effect, and mental elaboration.These three principles together make the High Performance Journal a powerful tool that you can use to improve your work and your personal life.
The principle of semantic priming is the theory that people respond differently depending on the words they see on a page. The High Performance Journal uses simple words to guide you to think about what you truly want– your Desired Outcome. Question-behavior effect proves that people are more likely to act when prompted with a question rather than a statement. At the end of your journal entry you must ask yourself, “What am I willing to do to make my desired outcome a reality? What are the actions I can commit to?” The desired outcome portion of the journal also relates to the mental elaboration theory. By thinking of what your desired outcome is, you must synthesize what it is you wrote in your journal, and think of it in a different way. This kind of strategy helps you to make connections and clarify your thoughts in a much better way.
With the High Performance Journal, you will have a much more systematic, productive way to journal. You will have one central location for all of the journals you desire. You will also get a lot more out of your journaling experience as you begin to think more deeply about your experiences and the things you desire to accomplish and achieve each day. The High Performance Journal is simple to use. Take a few minutes each day to reflect on what you have done, learned, and experienced, record it in your High Performance Journal, and watch how your life changes for the better!
