Do You Keep A Journal For Your IM Journey?

+1 vote
I think keeping a journal can be really helpful, especially in IM.

When you record down all you have done in IM, you may realized that "Oh, I didn't realize I have bought so many products in the past!"

Baiscally, you may start to realize why you are not as successful as you want to be.

So do you keep a journal in IM? Do you intend to start doing so? If you do keep a journal, what have you learned about yourself so far?

Well, I use:

  • A printed spreadsheet to track my time working;
  • A hard cover notebook to keep my journey in IM (now, updated once or twice per month);
  • A small notebook where I record my purchases, strategies, goals and "plan to dominate the world".

Now, I need to find one way to organize my experiments in SEO, traffic, social networks, etc. so I can improve my marketing strategy.

I don't keep a journal, but some kind of a record apart from one's accounts which should track purchases might be a good idea.

Perhaps a spreadsheet with lines to track the activities undertaken and tied up to a scheduler would be a good way to go. Certainly we should be tracking our marketing activity as a part of ouur business planning.

I keep a little informal record mainly of ideas and resources I have gathered. I have learned I have more ideas than time to execute them!

I keep a record of all my business practices. It does help me to stay on track with my expenses and how I can grow in certain areas. Furthermore, I find that when I keep a tablet to take notes in, it helps me when I start to put the lessons I have learned into practice for an upcoming niche I want to get started in for example.

keeping track of what worked for my past promotion efforts, also seems to be helpful for me.

Hope my answer helps

I've recorded a journal of all IM products that I have purchased. Now the list has included hundreds of items.

I also intend to record my tasks daily to see how productive I am and what works and what doesn't down the line.

Never thought of having a journal.  Do all the notebooks full of ideas count?  cheeky  Seriously, I have notebooks everywhere - big and small.  During periods of cleaning, I'll go through them and throw away whats no longer interesting or working.  

It's good to look on them, because I've been doing this since 2008 and each year, seems like month, things change.  Some techniques are evergreen while some have to be thrown out.  

I also have a lot of files on Google Drive.  It's not a journal, but all these files do provide me with a history of things I was working on at one time.
