The Sixty Second Journal was born out of a very challenging period of my life. Let me take you back a few years and give you a brief snapshot of that time. I live with my family in Cork, Ireland. I left school at 16 to work. I set up my first business at 19 and have founded several businesses since.
After a challenging time expanding a business in 2017/2018 that was destined for failure, I started to feel a sense of hopelessness, a sense of no way out. As an entrepreneur/businesses owner, I have always described my role as a problem solver, a finder of solutions to sometimes very difficult challenges. Nothing has ever been impossible and I have always found a way, but not this time. It was very different. I had put myself in a position that I really couldn’t see the path out.
It was at this time that I started writing down snippets of my thoughts. I would write them as notes on my phone, on scraps of paper, in texts or emails to myself, just about everywhere. This included the positive things in my life that were important to me and the issues/ challenges that I was facing.
I wrote mini goals for the days and weeks that I knew I could accomplish. Simple things such as, drink 2 litres of water daily, make sure I remember to eat, have a conversation with X, try doing XYZ. I didn’t know it at the time as my mind was consumed with the fear of the unknown of what was going to happen but in reflection now, writing down those short daily snippets and goals helped me overcome the most difficult 12 months of my life.
It was after this period as I reflected on everything that happened and also everything I did that helped me overcome the challenges, I started thinking that it would be great to share this with others.
I believe firmly in simplicity. I created this journal to be purposely easy to use, easy to follow and fast to complete. I didn’t want there to be endless sections, trackers, guides, etc, just thought prompts that have been shown to make people feel happier about themselves. I wanted to create a tool that encapsulated all that I had done and was doing but in a more structured and accessible way.
The Sixty Second Journal was born.
