In our last +1, we spent some more time with Robert Emmons as we talked about a new gratitude journaling practice I’m integrating into my daily Carpe Diem journaling.
I actually did a video on this not too long ago where I talked about the process: How to Journal Carpe Diem Style!
Today I’d like to talk a little more about that.
We’ve talked many times about our original Carpe Diem journaling process featuring our Big 3 (x2).
In our Mastery Series, we encourage you to get clarity on what we call “The Big 3”: Energy + Work + Love.
Then we encourage you to get clarity on your Optimus-best Identity for your Energy + Work + Love. Who are you at your BEST Energy-wise? Work-wise? Love-wise? We spend a lot of time on this in the program.
THEN we ask, “What VIRTUES does that best version of you embody?” Then we challenge you to LIVE THEM TODAY.
Enter: “Carpe Diem!!!”
THAT, we think, is one key way to move from Theory to Practice to Mastery and win the ultimate game of life.
I’ve playing around with another Carpe Diem journaling format. Same Big 3 of Energy + Work + Love.
Then we run those through THE TOP 3 virtues science says are most highly-correlated with well-being: Gratitude + Hope + Zest.
The Gratitude component is basically what we discussed in our last +1.
Then we throw in Hope (where we quickly SEE the better future we’re creating) + Zest (where we identify the disciplined action we’ll take TODAY to make that future a reality).
That’s How to Carpe Diem Journal in a nutshell.
Join us in our Mastery Series where (echo!) we spend TWO MONTHS helping you architect your Masterpiece Days and have fun rocking your Carpe Dieming!
Let’s seize the day.
