Theme System Journal Part 2

2023-01-05 00:00

Now This part is about the formatting of the different types of pages you find in the notebook.

These journals are designed to last you for 90 days if you use it every day.

It has five different kinds of pages: - Theme pages - Plain dot grid note pages - Journal pages - Daily theme pages - Index pages

I’m starting with the simplest and then moving on to the more interesting and unique pages after

Dot grid pages

At various places in this journal you’ll find plain dot grid pages without any specific use. My assumption is that they are there for different reasons. Partly to make the page numbers add up between the different other parts. And partly to have a place to write more, if you run out of space either in the Theme or Daily Journal pages.

Index pages

There are two index pages at the end of this notebook. I have had them in a lot of different notebooks I have used over the years. I guess they are useful if you’re into that kind of stuff.

I have never used them in any notebook I have had that have them.

Theme pages

There are four theme pages. My impression is that there are four of them to give you some flexibility to re-start a few times if you need to. And it isn’t really the idea to have multiple going at the same time.

The basic structure of them is that you give your theme a short title, then a longer description. And then you can list out up to eight ideal outcomes for your theme.

Daily Journal pages

The daily journal pages there are 90 of. They are divided into four sections plus a date field at the top.

First there are two small fields, followed by a large one then a even smaller one at the bottom.

I think this format is a really interesting way to journal about how you’re working on change. Because it kind of tries to push you do treat it as four different aspects.

Daily Theme pages

The daily theme pages are more like habit tracking. It covers 15 days, and 14 different themes. There is room to give all of them a name or short description plus a place to write the dates of each of the days. And a cool circle thingy for each day / theme combo. I really like the design of it, because it is kind of divided into two. So you can do a lot of interesting things with it.

Like just fill all of it, or first half if you did some and all if you did enough. Or you can even make each half have a separate sub-goal.


I think the format of the pages in this notebook is really well thought through and interesting. All of it makes sense, and seems to be a really good structure to work in a structured way against a goal.
