Stumbled on it and fell in love ★★★★★
by CMD925 – Version – 8.2 – Apr 5, 2015
“I accidentally stumbled across this app browsing apps and installed it. In no time flat I found myself using it incessantly and relying on it for reminders, memory jotters , recording ideas, memorialize events, and a menu of other things. Easy, well organized with more customizations than I’ve ever seen (paid version) I’m still in love with this app after 4 months of use.”
2. Time management program
It’s easy to start a journal. You can just purchase a traditional paper journal or download Daily Notes, write your first entry and boom, you’ve got yourself a journal. But maintaining and writing on it on a daily basis is the hard part. You become too busy, you forget, you lose the motivation, you don’t know what to write but it all simply boils down to not allocating some time in your day to do your journaling.
It’s not hard but it won’t be an easy journey either but you can start with the following tips to find some time to write:
Block off some to write. Treat it like an important appointment. Think of the best time where you can take care of your appointment to write. Add that to your to-do list and schedule a reminder beforehand everyday.

We’ve mentioned before the power of journaling and how essential it can be for one’s personal growth. You can readily start a journal right on Daily Notes. Just do the following:
1. Open up Daily Notes and you’ll immediate see a Theme Selection screen. You can pick and change this anytime you want.
A planner is a must if you want to stay sane and organized. It’s a great life management tool that enables you to keep track of your day by taking note of your appointments, events, tasks and more. Franklin Planners are a classic sample of such a powerful amenity, letting you also add your notes.
You might be fond of your planner but maybe, you’re now looking for a modern version, an app with some similar features, that you can use both on your iPhone and iPad devices. You can actually turn Daily Notes into that beloved, classic time management tool.
Here are some ways of turning Daily Notes into your very own Planner.
1. Create multiple sections.
Daily Notes has Tabs, which acts as sections, similar to a Planner. In these Tabs, you can sort and keep your notes, photos, even PDF attachments, sketches and voice recordings. Set up multiple Tabs for the different aspect of your life: Work, Personal, Projects, Workshops and more. You can even set up a Tab for your Master Tasks lists. You can also have a Tab for Addresses and Contact Information, just like a Planner.
Routines make our life easier. If you had to think hard doing the most mundane of things like brushing our teeth or putting on slippers, our brains will be on overload and our willpower will tire out easily.
Automation of behavior saves us brain and will power. Habits are powerful as it helps us streamline mundane decisions, saving our mental capacity and energy for more complicated ones.
Forming new habits and leaving behind old ones can be quite a pickle. If it was that easy, then everyone will follow through with their New Year’s resolutions. Tricky as it maybe, it can be done. You just need to understand first the basics behind the science of habit-forming.
Building a habit has a process which the scientists call the “habit loop.” It has 3 parts; a cue, a routine and a reward. Say for example, using toothpaste. Nobody used it about a hundred years ago. But a certain guy named Claude Hopkins introduced its concept via the habit loop.
