Write 5 Minutes a Day and Reach Your Dreams

506876_770… or at least enjoy life a hell of a lot better.

I have known about, and preached about, daily writing for as long as I’ve been a coach.

If you want to keep on doing same thing, and create the same results, then keep doing that. When Tim Gunn, a fashion guru, is approached by strangers and asked what he thinks of their outfit, he borrows “… a line from Lucy Ricardo in the show called, ‘Lucy Tells The Truth” by responding, “Well, if that’s the look you want, you sure have a good one.”

As your coach I’m here to say: “If that’s the life you want, you sure have a good one.” But is it the life you want?

Daily writing and daily habits will change your life. Plain and simple.

I’m here to confess that while I do have my own daily check in sheets I tried to hack my own version of The Five Minute Journal, a somewhat pricy ($22) daily journal meant to help you look on the bright side of life.

Bright side? Versus reality? No, the real side versus the poison we hear poured daily from the “news” (uh-oh Coach Kenji is a Pinko Commie) …

Let’s try science instead!

Nikki Usher, an assistant professor at George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs says that “… there’s actually an effect called the Mean World Syndrome. People who spend a lot of time with media content tend to think the world is a more violent place regardless of where that violence actually takes place.

So, how to combat that, change your brain, and create an amazing life? Buy this book, write in it, do it for a month. What have you got to lose?

What I love about using this journal: it’s elegant, it makes my daily writing feel a LOT more loving. It’s got useful prompts (daily) plus it’s not just the journal, it has the science behind why you should write for 5 minutes, daily. It takes a lot less than 5 minutes.

Here’s the thing I notice: when I follow the suggestions for creating positive change in my life … it works.

These practices (like the doom daily news in reverse) have literally rewired my habits: I look for the positive, I actively check myself when I become Dull Dishwater Downer, and I really do enjoy life a LOT more.

All from a little writing.

So, give it a shot. What have you got to lose?
