To be reminded of all those small things that compose each day.
It makes for an easy method of recalling your week and planning for the next one. I can now say looking back on the year of entries, that it has made a significant impact on my personal life and work life. In total the words are only a small collection of what transpired, but it serves as a wonderful reminder of those deeper memories. In only a few minutes at a time those moments can be archived as text, photos, audio, or video.
Try journaling for yourself. Find a pace that fits you. Make the recording process as friction-free as possible. Have everything at hand when the feeling strikes.
My new entries are always one keyboard shortcut away, which opens my favorite editor ready for quick input.
