The Full Focus Journal™ by Michael Hyatt

Build the Best Habit for Finding Clarity and Making Better Decisions—in Just a Few Minutes a Day

For high achievers, planning the day comes naturally. But how often do you take the time to actually process the day? Even the most productive leaders struggle to find enough distraction-free time to slow down, journal their thoughts, and grow in self-awareness.

That’s why Michael Hyatt took his daily journaling routine and designed a physical journal that finally makes consistency achievable. Use it at the beginning or end of your day to make each one better than the last.

About The Journal

Plenty of space to think deeply, just enough structure to keep you consistent.

When you sit down to journal, the last thing you need is a page that feels as cluttered as the thoughts racing through your mind. Scrunching your reflections into tiny boxes and pre-numbered lists isn’t a recipe for clear thinking.

Every day in The Full Focus Journal™ is built around a refreshingly simple 8-question template Michael Hyatt developed for his own use to not only make the writing easier, but to give you enough space to get to the good stuff. It gives you a track to run on, so you’ll never get stuck wondering what to write next.

A single ribbon marker keeps your place and offers a subtle reminder of your progress, while the hardbound, cloth-over-boards cover ensures you can write on any surface, whether at your desk or in bed. We took special care to ensure the binding lays flat, so you’ll never have to use your free hand to keep it open. Finally, a journal that feels as good to write in as it looks.

A Built-In Process That Makes Journaling Second Nature

Reflect on the Day

Simple questions help you quickly process the past 24 hours, so nothing of significance gets lost in the day-to-day whirlwind.

Uncover Key Lessons

Journaling isn’t just about what happened—it’s about understanding how and why things happen. Context is critical for learning, and The Full Focus Journal™ ensures you always have it.

Find the Joy of Gratitude

Remind yourself of the things that count and replace any nagging thoughts and limiting beliefs with a refreshed perspective as you start or finish your day.

Learn to Slow Down

Watching your progress unfold in page after page makes it much easier to escape the overwhelm that keeps so many leaders from slowing down and growing in self-awareness.

How It Works

The Full Focus Journal™ is built on research-backed principles that make it easier to journal with consistency.

Michael’s daily journaling template gives you a consistent routine made up of eight questions that not only help you get words on the page, they make sure you’re actually learning and uncovering valuable insights. This gives you the sense of reward that research shows is so crucial to forming a habit and sticking it.

The eight questions are broken into three parts.

The Surprising Advantage of Using a Paper Journal Instead of a Digital One

You’re likely already aware of the numerous science-backed advantages of writing on paper instead of a digital device.

Research has shown that handwriting helps you retain more information by engaging different parts of your brain and forcing you to more fully process your thinking. But the main reason Michael chose paper actually has little to do with writing.

The fact is, journaling is just as much about giving yourself a chance to slow down and experience a moment of calm as it is about the actual writing. Too often, our digital devices keep us plugged into the day-to-day chaos and distractions that make it so hard to gain clarity in the first place.

A recent study from the University of Texas found that merely having your phone within reach can significantly reduce cognitive capacity—even if it’s turned off. As one of the researchers behind the study put it, your phone is a “brain drain.”

With a paper journal, you’ll not only get all of the benefits of handwriting—you’ll also get the increased mental clarity that comes with reducing screen time.

  3. In an Annual Subscription, a new journal ships every 80-85 days, so each arrives before the 90-day mark. Single journals ship all at once, regardless the quantity you order. Therefore, if you need multiple journals in one shipment the single journal option would best suit your needs.

  4. The Full Focus Planner® is a complete system for planning and tracking your everyday tasks, quarterly targets, and yearly goals. It’s a tactical tool for acting on both your day-to-day and year-to-year priorities, complete with templates for conducting weekly and quarterly reviews.

    The Full Focus Journal™ is designed specifically to help you build the habit of daily journaling, so you can slow down, process each day, and grow in self-awareness.

  5. The Full Focus Journal™ is designed for 90-day journaling periods, so an annual subscription gets you four journals per year. You’ll save 10% by paying once up front each year, and you’ll automatically receive a fresh journal every 90 days. It’s much simpler than ordering a single journal every time you need a new one. You can cancel anytime without penalty.

Instead of wondering what to write, you’ll answer the same simple questions every time. The questions are also designed to ensure that you learn something from each entry. That built-in sense of reward makes building the habit much easier.

  10. Michael used the 8-question template in Day One for years. But after researching the benefits of paper, he decided to switch to writing in a physical journal. There are many benefits to using paper instead of digital. But the main benefit for Michael is that it allows him to slow down even further and have deeper reflection. On a digital device, you're still plugged into the busyness, which makes it harder to slow down. With paper, you're allowed to unplug and slow down, and this provides for greater clarity in journaling. For this reason, he's switching to using The Full Focus Journal™.

  11. There are many options out there but Michael is currently using this!

  12. One of the biggest benefits of daily journaling is the chance it gives us to slow down and unplug from the constant distractions of digital devices. We think you’ll enjoy the break from the daily whirlwind if you give it a try.

    Also, research shows that our brains like paper more than screens. We learn better, remember more, process more thoroughly, and understand more fully when we write things down rather than when we type them out. Something about the tactile experience of writing pen-to-paper creates a productive boost for our cognition.

    Michael does love digital solutions when they improve productivity. Down the road, we may consider something digital if it would be a positive addition. Right now, we’re convinced that there’s a huge value in analog for this journaling tool.
