FAQs—You’ve Got Questions, I’ve Got Answers (Good Ones!)

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


FAQs — Frequently Asked Questions

 

Hi folks,

Today it’s Q & As from your FAQs. There are a few things that newcomers might be wondering about (and I would be too, if I were a newcomer!). So here come those good answers I mentioned…

Q: I’ve noticed that JD Dyola Journalscome in sets—series of four—Why Is tHAT?

A: Excellent question! My signature 4–T series began with four volumes and, ever since then, every time there’s been a release I’ve simply continued the tradition. The interior and exterior of each volume in the first series was distinct; however,  with later series the interiors are the same. But I still offer four volumes to provide journal lovers with multiple cover options. You know the saying, “Different covers for different folks!”…Or maybe you don’t since that there was a JD original :-D.

 

Q: What does the Slogan “Books for you and by YOU!™” MEAN to you?

JD Dyola Journals ❤™ ⇒ Books for you and by YOU!™ Click To Tweet

 

A: All of my journals are for you and by YOU because I may give you a few tips, but no rigid rules. You decide whether you want to make entries at the start of your day, during it — as you are discovering something new — or as you wind down at its conclusion.

 

Q: Why is there a heart after JD Dyola Journals ❤™?

A: I try really hard to make each journal series as useful and functional as possible. A tremendous amount of love and energy goes into producing them for you. That’s what the ❤ represents. I hope that this comes through as you use them and make each one your own.

 

Q: I’ve Previewed Your Journals And I want to buy now, but some links take me to Amazon.com while other links go to the CreateSPace e-STORE—Does it Matter Whether I order my journal from one over the other?

A: Another phenomenal question! The CreateSpace links used to redirect to their corresponding pages on Amazon.com, this may no longer be functioning (I’m converting the CreateSpace links to Amazon.com links to avoid this). Therefore, I suggest that you visit the jddyola.com Previews tab, find the book that you’re interested in and click on it to go to my Amazon.com author page. Enjoy your journal!

 

Q: Are JD Dyola Journals green?

A:  Actually, no. While some are green in spots, we have a nice choice of colorful non-monochromatic covers. Oh wait, you meant eco-friendly didn’t you? Great question! I wondered that myself so I contacted my printer, CreateSpace (an Amazon company). Here’s the response that I received in March 2017:

“Thank you for contacting CreateSpace…. It is my pleasure to provide to you some information about our printing process.

Environmental consciousness is important to us as we continue to grow. As a manufacture on-demand company, we produce units only as they’re ordered, which reduces excess production. Our ink is chlorine-free, and our acid-free interior paper stock is supplied by an FSC-certified provider. While our laminated covers are considered a form of plastic, we currently offer a 55-pound (weight) off-set cream paper for black and white book interiors that is made from 30% post-consumer waste recycled material.

We maintain a commitment to recycling waste materials resulting from the printing process and from daily office operations, and we will continue to review our practices to ensure we are doing our part to protect the environment.”

 

Q: JD Dyola Journalssignature 4–T™ series stresses journaling daily, and I feel guilty. What If I don’t Journal every single day?

A: That’s fine! Just between you and me…journaling  every day is a goal that I aspire to as well. There are many days when I do not get to journal because of exhaustion, more pressing commitments, or not feeling like it. Therefore, please journal when you can, but without any shame or remorse.

My goal with the 4–T™ series is to encourage journaling, for its many benefits. So, if it’s your goal to make daily journaling a part of your life, the late great journaling master, Jim Rohn,  provides valuable advice in his audio presentation, How to Use a Journal, and in it Mr. Rohn admits that everyone who uses a  journal might not make daily entries (if the link to his audio no longer works please search YouTube for another).

Lastly, one of these posts (click here) might provide the incentive that you need to transition to—more frequent, guilt-free—journaling that works for you.

 

Well that ends the Q & A for today. As always, I appreciate your interest and support.

Thank you for journaling with me!
JD

WELCOME TO JD DYOLA JOURNALS


 

THE 2 NEW SPINOFF serieS off the ORIGINAL WIL–T: What I Learned…TODAY! Journal…

Hi folks, I’ve been promising more options for the 4-T™ journals, the time has finally arrived and I’m so excited! The two new series released today are spinoffs of the WIL–T™ journal;  I think they’re fabulous and I hope you will also!

The new WIL–T™ series have the same goal. The primary difference between the original WIL–T™ journal and these spinoffs is that the predetermined sections that were in the original WIL–T™ are not in the spin-offs, so you have complete freedom over your journaling sessions. As I always say, “Growth requires freedom!” (Note: The interior is the same for both new series, just choose the cover option that suits you most.) Additional 4-T™ spinoffs are on the way, a few more based on the updated WIL–T™ format published today, and several options are also in the works for the AWIR–T™, WIG 4–T™, WAW 4–T™ journal concepts.

More about the spinoffs:

WIL–T™—The Student Series & WIL–T™—The Lifelong Learning Series

The books in both series, WIL–T™—The Student Series and WIL-T™ —The Lifelong Learning Series, are handy tools that encourage reflection on what you learn each day—whether you journal throughout the day or at the day’s end. Journaling as you learn can stimulate continual growth, especially if you pause periodically, to revisit the thoughts of earlier entries and review your progress.

Again, the interior is the same for both series, just choose the cover option(s) that you like. According to Amazon, they should be available on my Author Page in 3-5 business days. Er, did I mention my excitement?! In honor of the wonderful occasion all the new journals are $10.16 (i.e., October 2016), a Special Introductory Price that’s more than 20% off the price of the original 4-T journals! Enjoy! (The introductory price has now expired.)

Happy journaling!
JD

4-T™ “for TODAY”: The Series That Started It All!

Welcome to JD Dyola Journals

 


 ⇒  JD Dyola’s 4-T Series—They’re Journals & They’re for…TODAY! ⇐

Hi folks,

Let me tell you a bit about how the 4-T™ series got started. About a year or so ago [2014], in addition to my general journal, I began to use a separate notebook for what I had learned during the day, another for notes about material that I had read that day, and a third one as a daily gratitude journal. At the beginning of my journal entry I would write “What I Learned Today,” or “About What I Read Today,” or “What I’m Grateful for Today.” In a short time, I was writing only the acronym for each journal heading (WILT, AWIRT, and WIG4T). The 4-T™ journals were conceived!

Then at the beginning of 2015, I started researching what’s involved in becoming indie author (self-published, independent author). I received helpful advice from successful indie authors, and soon the 4-T™ Journal Series was born! Then, after a few weeks of carrying around 3-4 journals every day, along with other books, I developed WAW 4-T: The Combo Journal. I figured that if I found journals like this valuable then others might also. And I believe that I had the right idea because you’re here reading this! I hope that you’ll love the 4-T™ journals as much as I do and enjoy using them. Click here for one journal user’s review of AWIR-T™!
