LifeJournal™ Newsletter – November 2006


LifeJournal Newsletter – November, 2006

This month we’ve created a new format for the newsletters. Our intention is to make the newsletter more compact and graphically interesting. Hope you like it.  If you have any comments or suggestions or reactions to the new format, please let us know. 

I answer the phones in our LifeJournal office often.  I enjoy staying in touch with our customers. Today I was speaking to a woman who wanted to buy LifeJournal for her daughter as a holiday gift. She wanted to customize the program for her daughter, especially adding quotes that were of special interest to her daughter. She asked if she were able to do that. What a cool idea! LifeJournal is a unique gift, for sure, and personalizing it further to suit the needs of the gift recipient makes the present even more meaningful!  Click here for instructions on how to do this.I often notice that while progressing through my life, I barely notice that I’ve changed.  It’s not until someone who hasn’t seen me for a while comments how I seem different than last time we spoke. This month’s newsletter offer a creative, fun and easy way to help see how your change over time: Snapshot Prompts.

There’s also an article about how to and suggestions when to back up your LifeJournal files.  To read the entire article, click on the link at the end and you’ll have the entire article on a new webpage.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Snapshot: A Set of PromptsMy parents weren’t committed photographers, but I enjoy revisiting the photos my parents took while I was growing up. I learn something new each time I re-examine them.

Photos are one kind of snapshots to review, but I’d like to offer another type of snapshot: a set of 21 questions, when answers will create a picture in words of who you are. You can answer these questions annually, perhaps close to your birthday or at the beginning of the year, or just randomly as the mood strikes. The prompts are listed below:

  1. How do you spend your time?
  2. What movie or book have you especially enjoyed recently? What kind of music do you listen to these days?
  3. What have you learned about yourself recently?
  4. What events, both personally and in the news, have touched you?
  5. How is your health?


Thank you for coming up with such excellent software. Journaling is an excellent way to find myself.  Normal planners are too straight-jacketed and ‘organized’ and don’t take into consideration the emotional aspects of an individual.

I think journaling is really therapeutic.  Because of the knowledge that the information is secured, one is able to truly open up to oneself.  And that in itself provides a catharsis, an emotional and psychological cleansing.”     –YL Chew

JOURNALING TIP: When you want to center before journaling, go to a peaceful and relaxing audio/video.
  Backing Up Your LifeJournal Files

Every so often–actually too often–we receive an email from customers who tell us that their hard drives crashed and that they hadn’t backed up their LifeJournal files. They frequently tell me that they they’ve learned their lesson and that they are going to back up from now on! Here’s a heads up so you can avoid this fate.
