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.
Simple questions help you quickly process the past 24 hours, so nothing of significance gets lost in the day-to-day whirlwind.
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.
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.
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.
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 first three questions help you record the important things that happened since your last entry, celebrate your wins, and identify lessons worth remembering. They make you more intentional with the meaning you assign your experiences—which is even more important than the experiences themselves.
Slowing down gives you the rare opportunity to actually focus on the present moment. This page lets you use that moment to practice gratitude and acknowledge any feelings that are too difficult to detect in the whirlwind of daily life.
What should you take with you into the next day? Answer the final three questions to build momentum and set a course that will help you move forward with confidence.

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.

Michael’s proven eight-question journaling template prevents you from starting from scratch when you sit down to write. 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.
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™.
There are many options out there but Michael is currently using this!
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.
