Having the right mindset is important before you start on your journal to set yourself up for success. Have high expectations. Expect the impossible. Be open to opportunities and trust you can do whatever you set out to do.

Define your 13-week outcome goal(s): The BIG picture
Studies have shown that the simple act of writing down a goal increases your chances of reaching it. However, writing it down is only the first step. The most important part is defining the milestones and creating the path that will get you there. Here’s how…
Plan for the week ahead
Start your weekly journey each week by filling out the Weekly Planning pages. This exercise is key to framing your week. If you jump into your week without a plan, it’s easy to become unfocused or stuck on the things that aren’t important. So let’s jump into the different sections of the weekly planning page...
Now, let’s get into planning your day!
The key to a kick-butt day is to leave ZERO (or as little as possible) white space on your planner. Remember, unallocated time is more likely to be squandered. You can plan for your day the morning of, or take some time the night prior to map it out. Whatever works for you!
Reflect on your week
In addition to planning your week ahead of time, it’s important to check in on your progress at the end of each week to ensure the needle is moving and the wheels aren’t just spinning.
If you keep your eye on the ball, you can get back on track more quickly if you go off course. Weekly reflections can provide clarity and perspective that helps keep you motivated. You’ve got this!
So, ready to get started?
As the saying goes, there’s no better time than the present!

SELF Journal Review
I have gone through this journal twice now and have another one to go through as well! They are the perfect life companion for keeping me on track with achievable goals, setting consistent habits, and reminding me to be grateful every day. I cannot recommend this journal enough for someone that is a go-getter looking to organise their thoughts and goals.
Best Self is sometimes found at 10:30pm
Ah the quiet of a sleeping house! Here I am with both my Self Planner and Self Journal. I appreciate having a solid place to declutter my mind so I can focus on my goals.
I’ve never been more productive
Im really glad I found this. About a year ago, I started using the journal and found my productivity skyrocketed. I was able to crush my 9-5 and design an app at the same time, and felt like I could really make progress on the things I wanted to do. At some point I fell off the wagon after a vacation and job change and stopped working on any side projects. Fast forward to Covid, now I’m stuck at home and feeling low as ever, with as much downtime as I could ask for in a fast-paced tech job. I remembered my experience with the BestSelf Journal and was intrigued to see they revamped it. So now I’m on my second, about a week in, and I’ve gone back to feeling motivated again. Even if I don’t hit my 13 week goal, which frankly, I just made up because I know I need more time for myself and creativity, I know I will have made better use of my time than if I never planned at all. The key is to just make the time to plan your day. If you can do that, you can do wonders. I’m digging the revamp, though the empty space means you have to take more of a free-form approach to reflection. All good, still worth every penny in my opinion. I do hope they offer a cheaper version with less wasted packaging though. I don’t need a calendar and guidebook every time if I buy more in the future. Thanks for building this product!
I LOVE my self journal. I am currently on to my second journal. The layout is simply but effective, it helps me set my priorities for the day and I especially love the nightly reflection as well. 10/10 best journal I've ever purchased. I will be a lifelong customer for sure
