I am designing a journal as a gift. 

Actually, my self-journal is just some simple habit trackers with a calendar. So, what common items should a great journal include? Some research is done and there are four journals I picked to make a review: Five Minute Journal,  Productivity Planner, Freedom Journal and SELF Journal.


At first, you need to set up how long should one round cost: one week, 10 days or a month? And what's the number of total rounds, 13* (one week), 10*(10 days), 3* (one month)? It depends on your goal.

Then, the common structure of a journal is three stages: planner (before one round), daily routine (during one round), and review (after one round).


Next, what're the details of each part?

#1 Planner (before one round)

  • targets in priority order
  • one habit for commitment
#2 Daily routine (during one round)
  • Morning
    • gratitude meditation
    • targets in priority order
    • timeline planner
    • motivated quote
  • Evening
    • productivity score
    • wins
    • lessons learned
    • how to do better
    • gratitude meditation
#3 Review (after one round)
  • productivity score
  • wins
  • lessons learned
  • how to do better
  • habits tracker
  • one habit for commitment


Generally, I want each part in my journal could be described as one simply and thoughtful question. So, it would be a list of questions to answer to win a day.
