Welcome to JD Dyola Journals


About Journaling

Hi folks, For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, Dictionary.com defines a journal as “a daily record, as of occurrences, experiences, or observations.” So journaling describes the action. What’s so great about keeping a journal anyway?

Whether you are a veteran or novice journaler, please keep reading because I’m sharing 11 great posts about keeping a journal that I’m sure you’ll love.

The Benefits

Journaling can help you to keep track of your progress as you work toward your long and short-term life goals. It can remind you of things that you want to include in your schedule, and help to get frustrations out on paper (thereby improving your mood).

There are so many benefits, which several writers have discussed the rewards of in more depth, as you will discover as you read the following posts:

Changes to the 4-T™ Series & New Journals Planned for 2016!

 

Welcome to JD Dyola Journals


The New 4-T™ “for TODAY” Series

Changes WIL-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2          Changes AWIRT_Front Cover         Changes WIG 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2         Changes WAW 4-T_BookCoverImage-UPDATE2

Hi folks,

Today’s post is about recent changes and updates to the 4-T™ journal series and some of the new JD Dyola Journals ❤™ planned for 2016!

Please click on the links below to open the page about that journal.

WIL-T: What I Learned…TODAY! (Volume 1 – A Learning Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

AWIR-T: About What I Read…TODAY! (Volume 2 – A Reading Companion Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

WIG 4-T: What I’m Grateful for…TODAY! (Volume 3 – A Gratitude Journal in the 4-T “for TODAY” Series)

WAW 4-T: The Combo Journal—What I Learned, Read & Appreciated…TODAY! (Volume 4, Volumes 1-3 Combined)

 

Changes, Changes, Changes

Since the 4-T™ project was my first book series I wanted it to be as great as possible, but I had to stop working on it at some point and release it. Therefore, even though there were still adjustments that I wanted to make, I stuck to a self-imposed deadline and released the books on schedule. Consequently, even though I have other journal projects I want to work on, I took a few days to go back and make some improvements. The result…completely redesigned covers for WIL‑T: What I Learned…TODAY! and WAW 4‑T: The Combo Journal—What I Learned, Read, & Appreciated…TODAY!. I’d love to hear what you think! Please leave a comment below.

Daily Goals

The 4–T™ series is really about growth. Regardless of the journal(s) you choose, how about we all make it our goal to read each day, learn something new every day, and express gratitude throughout our days, let’s grow in some way. Are you with me?

New Series Planned

Finally, I plan to introduce several new journals that essentially spring from the  4-T™ concept and several others. As always, I truly hope you’ll love using them!

Keep growing & journaling,
JD

UPDATE | September 12, 2017: Well, I was a bit ambitious in what I planned for last year to say the least! We did release several new journals that “essentially spring from the  4-T™ concept.” In fact, 20 of them—no small feat! The other concepts still need work. So all I can say is that they’ll be released as soon as they are ready. Thanks for your patience and support!

JD Dyola’s Celebration of Life Collection™


WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS
 


Announcing My Life, My Thoughts, My Journal: JD Dyola’s Celebration of Life Collection™!

Last week, as I was tweaking the first 2 books in the 1st series of this new collection, I saw a motivational post on Twitter at #SeptemberShakeUP and I took it as a personal challenge. I was already fired up, but I thought, “What could I do to personally kick things up a notch or THREE?” Well, the idea came to me of releasing 20 new journals, or 5 four-set series’, before the end of the month, September 2015. It sounded good at the time so I put it out there by posting the goal for the world to see. Then I got back to work!

A few times in this process I did think, “Why, did I have to put it out there?!” It has been a rough couple of days, but I did it! And I’ve learned so-o-o much. The 6th series is now complete which means that I’ve actually exceeded my original target. Am I exhausted? Yes! But I also feel exhilarated. Sixteen of the 20 books in the new collection are available now (please use links below) and all 24 will be out before or on September 30th. Please visit the Previews & Updates page for new additions to the Collection.

Now that I’ve accomplished so much in such a short time, it’s hard to go back to my old schedule. I want to keep going!

Fired up,
JD

Announcing JD Dyola’s My Cleanse Keeper (MCK)—The Black & White Series

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


Hi folks,

My Cleanse Keeper (MCK)  is a journal that you can use for any detox program, including the Master Cleanse (MC), if that is what you choose.

The MC just happened to be the detox plan that I discovered last year as I was researching ways to improve my health and well-being. I came across a book about it, read it cover-to-cover, and decided to follow the program. I needed a good journal to track my progress so I designed one. When I completed my cleanse and had a very positive experience, I did what you normally do when you find something beneficial…I enthusiastically shared my results with family and friends. And they wanted to learn more and try the MC detox also. So, for encouragement I gave them blank copies of my journal and they loved it. I hope that you will too! I’ve put the journal in book form and updated it considerably. Now I am super excited and beyond thrilled to share it with you!

A couple of weeks ago, I released the MCK  Full-Color Series. Then I immediately began working on the MCK Black & White Series to offer a few more alluring options to my fellow cleansers. MCK—B & W comes in the delightful fruit selections shown. Each book is the same inside and, other than a few minor changes, nearly identical to the Full-Color Series. For instance, this time I’ve chosen a matte finish instead of a glossy one for the cover. And it was a great decision, you’ll just love the luxurious look and silky feel of it.

Experts agree that keeping a written record of your health is beneficial in many ways. Tracking your daily progress as you detox is very important as well. So please try the My Cleanse Keeper journals! Use the volumes in either series in any order that you like…better yet mix-and-match between both the Full-Color and the Black &White Series MCK series!

Wishing you more health and happiness than I can express,
JD
