Journaling courses span the gamut of topics. Your journaling experience will entirely depend on the course you have elected to take. For example, there are journaling courses for personal development, relationships, and career. In a journaling course, you will write about things that bother you or thoughts you have. You analyze the challenges in your relationships and work through them. A writing practice like journaling gives you the space to define goals for yourself and lay out how to achieve them.

Planners are ideal to set a series of goals for your personal life, your individual development, or your career. One example of this is if you’re a business owner looking to increase a connection with your customers and build a following on the web. A planner can help you flesh out what you’d like to accomplish with your email marketing, social media, and newsletters.
Another idea for a planner could be if you need to tackle a pretty complicated, grand-scale personal goal. The goal might be something such as your wedding. A planner will help you nail down your stepping stone goals to help you check off various aspects of coordinating the wedding or other event.
Personal assessments work best for those times when you’re searching for activities that will help you develop skills and improve in any number of areas. You might be looking for a career change, for instance. Perhaps there is an area of interest that appeals to you, but you aren’t quite sure if this is the direction you should go in.
Taking a series of personal assessments from our self-coaching resources can help you get clear on your career path and decide what your next moves should be. Or, if you seek greater fulfillment in what to do with your free time, then you might take a personal assessment or two to learn more about yourself, your likes and dislikes, your personality, and your social preferences. For your first personal assessment, take the quiz, Are you coachable?
