SELF Journal: Your Daily Structure for Success

$322,695

 The Self Journal is a powerful yet simple daily planner to help you structure your day, enjoy life, and reach your goals quicker than you thought possible.

The idea for Self Journal was sparked when Allen and I left our day jobs to focus trying to run and grow our entrepreneurial business ventures. After a while it felt like we were on a treadmill, working everyday but not getting anywhere. We’d feel busy but not productive. We’d get to the end of the day and feel unclear on what we accomplished that really mattered.

We needed a change. So we started researching the most successful high-performing people in the world to figure out what we were missing. We read a ton of books...

 Among many other things we learned what differentiates outstanding performers from the average person is an ability to plan, effectively execute and track progress. They create daily rituals for success. When we modelled these principles, hacks and rituals for ourselves things started to turn around in a big way.

Our goal with SELF journal has been simple; to create something that lends itself to making success inevitable - through planning, execution and measurement.

The Self Journal was crafted to support you on affecting your behavior today which is why we focus on hitting your goals 3 months (13 weeks at a time).

Why only 3 months you ask?
So many of us set new years resolutions but don't follow through. Setting yearly goals allows you the time to put things off, nevermind that life can change a lot in a year. Setting yourself a 3 month goal gives you time to accomplish something, but not so much that you'll procrastinate on it. The Self Journal uses proven systems that help you perform at your best every single day through more effective execution.Why only 3 months you ask?

By applying this system to your life you'll have more focus and a sense of urgency on working on the things that really matter to you.

Full Genuine Leather Slip Case that will carry your SELF Journal in style.

Curious about cover quality?

Have no fear, we’re working with Satchel & Page based out of Austin, Texas on creating this custom-sized cover. Here’s everything you can expect:

  • It’s 4 oz. full-grain cowhide leather means it will get better the longer you use it
  • Drum dyed with a blend of oils and waxes to allow the dye to fully penetrate the leather (unlike cheaper leathers which are only tanned on the surface)
  •  Gently tumbled so the leather has a soft, supple feel
  •  The cover is die cut to ensure perfect accuracy and fit of every SELF journal
  • Option for personal monogramming available!

Making this project has been a dream come true for us, I really hope that this will help you in your future projects and with your work like it has for me. Let's dream big! Thank you so much for checking out my project and your support is greatly appreciated!

This journal is for people like you, creators, thinkers and entrepreneurs who always aim to improve yourselves and the world around you. Our long-term vision is to create a community where people like you, creators, designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs can work together and hold each other accountable to becoming the best version of ourselves.

We’re a believer in Alan Weiss’ “One Percent Solution” — the concept that if you aim to improve your business or yourself by 1% each day, in only 70 days you’ll be twice as good as you are now. Let's work together to make SelfJournal that turns dreams into reality across the world!

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing a high-quality journal like this is a big undertaking that involves a lot of scheduling, prep time and extremely high attention to detail. We'll be working with a few manufacturers for the different parts of the journal to ensure all parts are arranged properly, from getting the right premium paper to the navy cloth cover to the bookmark materials to the packaging materials.

Our challenge include ensuring each and every SELF journal is finished to the quality of workmanship we are promising to backers and delivered to your door in the time we specified. Once the journals are manufactured we have them delivered to our warehouse in MN where we will ship them to our backers across the world.
