Cultivate Managing Moments Journaling Habits
Managing Moments is best viewed as a set of habits. A set of daily journaling practices that builds fluency in the use of Managing Moments method.
Four Managing Moments Journaling Habits
The basic Managing Moments journaling process consists of four activities:
Record/update SMART goals for a project you are doing this month
Record daily activities
Track capacities and resources. Our connections contribute to our projects in different ways and increase our capacity to do projects.
These four steps capture the interplay of unpredictable, unexpected moments and systematic and disciplined daily activities. We respond to moments by clarifying SMART goals. Our capacities and resources enable us to respond to moments and do the right daily activities.
We started using our Managing Moments journal in Thortspace to blog daily.
