I continue to rediscover Mac resources I have purchased which I failed to use to their fullest. Three favorites I’ve rediscovered are
- Screencastsonline.com (where I discovered an excellent tutorial on using DayOne)
- Noteboomtutorials.comAs I plan this summer my last year in CarrolLand, I’m revisiting a number of journal entries I made across the past forty years. I just purchased a five-year journal that allows me to compare my thoughts across the past five years. How things have changed!
While cleaning the office I came across my journal notes from when I still was a graduate student at Ohio State. I had just returned from a two-day job interview at then-named Carroll College in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Much has changed since then!I still use and keep journals now–some paper and pencil— though I now do most journaling using software dedicated to that function. Though I have explored the utility of many apps, my personal preference at the moment is DayOne. An excellent hour-long screencast tutorial is available from Screencastsonline.I particularly use journaling to follow the recommendations of Jane Hart on the value (I would argue, the necessity) of reflecting on my work day accomplishments and failures and as a tool for short and long-term goal setting. This was one of many lessons I learned from Jane. What a pioneer, mentor, and virtual Friend she has been for over a decade. How deserving her recent award and recognition!
What journaling software or tools do you use? Why?
