Video: Keep a Milestone Journal. (Or a Milestone Book.)
Posted Apr 05 2011 11:00am
2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge , to make 2011 a happier year -- and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge -- welcome! This month’s theme is Memories. Last week’s resolution was to Keep a one-sentence journal . Did you try that resolution? Did it boost your happiness?
This week’s resolution is to Keep a milestone journal.
You'll notice that I accidentally switch back and forth in terminology -- calling it a "milestone journal" and a "milestone book." Which phrase has a better ring? Or can you think of a better term, altogether?
I'm now offering the videos in podcast form now (well, at least I'm trying.) I hope to figure out a more attractive way to include this podcast code, necessary for loading into iTunes, but bear with me for now -- also, soon I'll provide the information on where to find the podcasts on iTunes.
Have you found any manageable, satisfying ways to keep happy memories vivid? Do you keep anything like a milestone journal yourself?
If you're new, here’s information on the 2011 Happiness Challenge . It’s never too late to start! You’re not behind, jump in right now, sign up here . For the Challenge, each week I'll post a video suggesting a resolution for you to consider. For more ideas for resolutions to try, check out the archives of videos here .
* I'm so happy for my friend, the brilliant, hilarious Debbie Stier. Her fabulous new site, Perfect Score Project , has just launched -- "a site dedicated to achieving the perfect SAT scores (or at least to having fun trying). If I'm lucky, I'll learn something by walking a mile in my teenage son's shoes." Thankfully, my life is for the moment SAT-free, but I visit this site just because it's so fun.
