I Have So Many Ideas - Tanja de Bie van LeeuwenWe all have so many ideas.

It’s what you do with all these ideas that matters! I create tools to help you with these challenges. Like the BetterJournaling® suite.

FOCUS — Follow One Course Until Successful (Robert Kiyosaki)

If I can do it, so can you!

You know, I once suffered from having too many ideas. It kept me from reaching my goals because I was so distracted by every new idea in my head. All I had to show for it, was a pile of project-beginnings and nothing tangible. This intriqued me, why do we get stuck and abandon the ideas we at first loved so much? Are some people just not ‘suitable‘ or others ‘lucky’? I refused to believe that and studied succesfull people, my own behavior and of those around me to find the answers.

The answer lies in journaling

I realized journaling was a very important action a person can take to improve themselves: their believes, actions and productivity. But no planner or journal was good enough for me. I ended up customizing my Moleskines and it dawned on me that I should create and publish my own journal with a supporting mobile app and website. The journal is already available: Day by Day a 13-week journal by BetterJournaling®.
