The Business Journaling Starter

About the Book

There are sooo many methods and books out there to either reflect well or to get organized (e.g. Bullet Journaling, Mindful Practises, Atomic Habits, Getting Things Done, Personal Kanban, Building a Second Brain).

This book (mainly) aims at two "types" of people, those:

  1. who either tried some (or all) of the methods named before but couldn't make them stick in their life
  2. who always wanted to dive into one of the mentioned books or methods but "just don't have enough time".

The Business Journaling Starter Guide provides an easy-to-start approach to journaling at work, for work and beyond work. It borrows from established methods like Bullet Journaling and well-researched fields like Mindfulness and Psychological Flexibility.

Yet most importantly: you get to learn from my decades of experience in applying reflection-at-work practises myself as well as coaching people in choosing, using and leveraging them.

Concise and straightforward. I really want to start my own Business Journal right away. I appreciate the honesty that it will require effort and willpower. It's refreshing to see a realistic perspective rather than just another overly optimistic book.

With every incremental release of this book I got more value. It felt like I've been guided directly 1:1 by Cosima in my reflection journey. As a nice side effect, I already noticed I am getting more organized. I just get more of the stuff done which truly matters to me. Thanks Cosima!
