This template is a work in progress. I change things up from time to time as I feel like focusing on an area of my life in greater detail. I currently use Evernote and have this stored as a template I can easily apply each day to a new note.
Get Evernote here: https://jerad.link/evernote
Download the template to import directly into Evernote: https://jerad.link/dailylogtemplate
To use the template in a notes app other than Evernote, copy and paste the log shown below and replace my entries with your own.
Here is how I use my Daily Log.
Intentions: Before bed or at the beginning of the day I set my intentions which include the main goals for the day and the attitude I want to have.
Happenings: Essentially just the items on your calendar.
Gratefulness Log: Throughout the day I add people or things that come to mind.
Action Items: To-do list (I place checkboxes next to the items in Evernote and check them off as I complete them)
Check-ins: Short journal entries throughout the day. I have reminders set on my phone to trigger me to do this.
Ideas: A place to store ideas and thoughts.
Notes: A place to keep notes on ideas, thoughts, something I read, something I listened to, etc.
Caffeine and Workout logs: Additional things I am currently tracking.
