Whether you are an artist or an economist, a creator or an organizer, you've probably come to the realization that making a daily reflection, regardless of one's choice of media, is an important step in reaching one's goals or perhaps more importantly, embracing the journey toward said goals. By providing an outlet to reflect upon the struggles of today, one can build an environment in which progressive perspectives can develop in the days that follow; who knows what you'll come up with!
As a way to stay connected with my athletic experiences I've traditionally used my training journal for self-reflection, a tactic I strongly suggest to all of my Toque Torque Coaching clients; however this doesn't always satisfy my need to create. That is where sharing pictures, videos, and perspectives with you all have come to the fore.
I've found that if I don't create one small thought, picture, video clip per day, I often have trouble recalling the day altogether. After maintaining a detailed training journal for 13 years now, I can safely say that on the days in which I've reflected, I can remember many other things about that day; however for the periods of time in which I stopped reflecting, the days mash together and with it the lessons I learned during that time.
Here is a really cool TED talk that I think you all may enjoy. Link
