Top 3 Journal HACKS (for Journaling Success)


FULL journal course is now LIVE!

Journaling has been the number one thing I’ve done to develop myself. In this video – I’ll go over the 3 best journal hacks for journaling. This is the ultimate guide to keeping a journal series. For more “how to journal” videos or “flip throughs”, see the links below!


The quality of our life is the qual of our questions.
The fastest way to upgrade your life? Upgrade questions you ask yourself.

Learning to ask better questions is one of the most impactful life skills we can master.

Remember, your journal is where you can COACH YOURSELF.
Turns out one of the best places to ask these are in your journal!

Examples of some bad questions:

BAD QUESTIONS: “Why does this always happen to me?”
BAD QUESTION: “Why can’t I ever lose weight?”
BAD QUESTION: “Why am i always broke?”

Examples of some good questions:

GOOD QUESTION: “What can I do to make sure this never happens again?”
GOOD QUESTION: “What have the most successful people who have lost weight done, and how can I model their success?”
GOOD QUESTION: “What strategies do wealthy people use that I can do today to improve my finances?”

Great place to find awesome questions is the (FREE) “11 Questions To Change Your Life Forever” workbook:


Most people’s journals are just a book with random notes – They lack organization.

Remember, the goal of our journal is to make it the best book we’ve ever read. This requires filling up and organizing your journal so you can find insights 5-years from now when you’re flipping though old journals.

One of the biggest hacks I’ve done to upgrade my journaling was organizing my journal into 6-9 sections. Separate each section with one page with the next section written on it.

EXAMPLE: if my next section is “gratitude” then I write “GRATITUDE SECTION” in BIG red bold letters before I do my first entry.
This is something we REALLY dive into on the Ultimate Guide to Keeping A Journal Course:


This is where we get geeky….

Yes, the gear does matter!

Quick overview:

Pentalic Sketch Book – My all time favorite journal. This is the blank, sketchbook style journal I recommend.

Pilot G2 Pens  – The pens I use (and chew on) while journaling.

Pilot G2 Ultra Fine Tip  – A great ultra fine (0.38mm) black pen I use for a majority of my black ink journal writing.

Sharpie Highlighter – Awesome retractable highlighters I use when reading books. Love that you don’t have to keep taking the cap on / off.

    I find it very amusing that you call your journal watchers "journal nerds" (giggles because my username is fucking awesome).

  13. jose hinojosa February 15, 2018 at 12:40 am

    What do you think about bullet journals?

  14. lullabysea February 15, 2018 at 12:40 am

    Would you ever consider doing a bookshelf tour? Your bookshelf looks filled to the brim with great books and I'm always looking for a good recommendation! You don't have to explain what each book is like, but I'd love to see a slow pan of all the books you have. 🙂

  17. Steff P February 15, 2018 at 12:40 am

    I love you man.

    hey Clark, what Podcasts do you recommend?

  22. Winry Live! February 15, 2018 at 12:40 am

    Clark, You said in the video during tip 1 that you'd share where to get great questions "later" but then never returned to that thread of thought. So… where do you get great empowering questions to journal with?
