After getting a Master's degree from the University of Southern California, I co-founded an educational publishing company. We started by creating computer software documentation, then moved into college textbook production and educational software development.
I haven't exactly followed the beaten path, in fact, I've taken many extracurricular excursions. One loop involved leaving the business world to run a scuba diving lodge in Central America. Another involved raising two boys as a single parent. A particularly rough loop involved making major emotional and spiritual changes. Journaling became an important tool for navigating this part of my path.
In discussing the benefit of journaling with other people I heard two common answers: "Oh, I'd like to, but I'm really not much of a writer" and "Well, I journal, but I write wildly and sporadically and the process doesn't result in insights or self-improvement.
I created the Journals for Positive Change series to address these answers. These are "guided journals" where users respond to pre-formatted prompts. They help people stay motivated and focused on making specific behavior changes in the areas of physical health, emotional balance and spiritual connection.
