Need to change your mindset quickly? Try Journaling….

I had the privilege today to host the Phoenix Chapter of the International Coach Federation’s BlogTalkRadioShow. Ana Melikian, Phd ACC, has been producing this show for 2 years and I’ve been the host learning and growing as a result.

Today we interviewed Kim Ades of Her coaching program is focused primarily on journaling.

She shared some amazing stories of helping her clients build emotional resiliency by gaining greater awareness of their mindsets, their thoughts and their beliefs.

As someone who has been journaling since I was about 19 years of age, I found her approach to be quite powerful.

I hope you’ll listen to her show, view her website or enjoy our whitepaper on building reserves of time so you have time to think strategically and perhaps even do a bit of journaling:

If you find this whitepaper or her approach to journaling valuable, please share a comment or two.

    Such common sense wisdom! I just read the white paper and am inspired. And, I am making a personal commitment here and now to use this system. Office Max? I am on my way. Get the blank notepads ready because I’m going to buy a few! Thanks Katharine!

    I can speak to the value of the daily brain dump. In November of 2011, I discovered a website that changed my life: The idea is to write at least 750 words every day, and the site tracks your word count and ongoing “streaks” of consistency. I started doing this at first to try to free up some creative energy, but as I have developed the habit of writing every day (currently on a 245 day streak), first thing in the morning, I have found that my productivity at work has improved, my general mental clarity and peace of mind have grown deeper, and I sleep better.
    The White Paper was very helpful, and has already given me ideas of how I can build on this current daily practice. Thank you!

    Thanks so much for sharing this great tool at I started journaling as a very young adult and later found Julia Cameron’s work to be profoundly valuable. She recommends writing 3 pages a day consistently. I love the benefits you’ve seen! Thanks for the powerful testimonial. Thanks too to Kim Ades for sharing her powerful tool and for Ana Melikian, Phd for producing our BlogTalkRadioShow.
