And whatever else your heart desires.

And get it QUICK. Journals will be shipping out 1 month after the campaign ends.

 

 

 

Get a FREE mini PDF of the Master Your Mornings Journal by sharing our Kickstarter campaign. Click the big share button below -- you’ll be helping the world become happier and more successful :)
 

You’ll get “The Why”, “The What”, and “The How” sections, along with a sample week of content and tracking.

 

 Note: this free mini PDF only contains about the 50% of the content of the full PDF / full Sidekick Journal. It is also not a fillable PDF, while the $17 pledge PDF is.

1. Tracking

You'll get only essential metrics to track daily. Tracking is invaluable. It create momentum through streaks and provides you with tangible feedback for the days you struggle to help you push through.

2. Content

Content is key because it keep you engaged. Each day you'll get new bite-sized, actionable content that you can apply immediately to improving your mornings.

 

3. Accountability

Specific sections in the introduction and content are dedicated to creating your own systems of accountability. All backers also gain access to our private Facebook Group to provide ongoing daily accountability.

The journal is designed to be portable and serve as a physical reminder to stay consistent.

Alone, each of these fields are useful. But when you combine all three, you get incredible results.

The journal is crafted exclusively with high-quality materials from the outside cover to the pages within. The cover's material is textured yet silky smooth to the touch.

Bonus: Red Version Unlocked!

As a thank you for hitting our goal, we've partnered with our friends at JOY, creators of the Octopus Watch, to release a custom RED version of our journal. You can pledge for it on the side. Here's a picture of it:

 

 

   

 

When you first use your Sidekick Journal, you'll be walked through three simple steps:

  • Establish WHY you’re doing this 
  • Prepare for WHAT you’re going to do on a daily basis 
  • Strategize on HOW you’re going to do it

This empowers you with an arsenal of tools to tackle your mornings and make them something you actually look forward to.

With this established, you're ready to conquer the three phases of building a new habit.

What to expect

The changing of any habit is incredibly hard at the beginning. Think about it... You are re-wiring your brain in a way that it has not operated for many years or even your whole life. It’s going to be VERY tough. But the beautiful part about this phase is it’s very short lived at one week.

What you’ll get from the journal

Each day you’ll be getting expert strategies and specific daily challenges to get you laser focused on turbocharging your mornings.

What to expect

The second phase is all about solidifying this new habit in your brain through one important factor: consistency.

What you’ll get from the journal 

You’ll get a surge of inspirational success stories and personal affirmations to push you through here.

 

What to expect

By the third phase, the foundations of any habit have been built. Now, it’s all about pushing it to the next level so you’re getting the most out of it. This phase is about habit mastery.

What you’ll get from the journal 

Get golden nuggets of recommended podcasts, blogs, and cool resources, helping you become an absolute master of morning times.

There’s a common myth that it takes 21 day to build a new habit. However, the real answer is that it can vary for everyone. So why did we pick the number 66 days?

A study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology was conducted by Phillippa Lally and her research team that examined 96 people over a 12-week period.

 

 

Our story all started from a passion project called PartnersInGrind.com - basically, we launched an eHarmony for ambitious people who want to find accountability partners for habit building. We matched people together via email, for free.

Growth was stellar - thousands and thousands of people across 57 countries signed up! The most popular habit among our users was Mastering Your Mornings.

We then sent thousands of emails to our users with daily challenges, pro-tips, and sparks of inspiration.

Users told us what the most effective emails were -- we narrowed down only the best of the best and now put it in this journal.

We started seeing feedback improve more and more. Soon enough we were getting messages like this:

“These emails are shaking up my life! I've recently quit smoking and I feel that these emails are inspirational." -Saad A.

We tested tips further on Quora.com. We started from scratch -- within 2 months, we became the #1 rated writer in FOUR different self-help categories, amassing 600,000+ views in under 60 days.

 

We’ve tested with real-world readers what truly is impactful.

Now with the Master Your Mornings Sidekick Journal, you will get access to only the new golden nuggets of info every day you use it. 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Having run a previous Kickstarter and working with manufacturing past physical goods has taught us a LOT about the manufacturing process.

Assuring quality is usually the main differentiator between a successful project and a failed one (any factory can just spew out crap). We are being very proactive about this by hiring a quality control agent to be in the actual book manufacturer's plant to oversee the production process and check the units on the spot.

Thankfully journals are not that complex, though in the event of any errors or defects, we will be able to reject faulty units immediately and have new prints be made.

We've done an extensive sampling process and have already got 100 journals sent to us. The quality was good thus far which is a good sign. Still, through daily communication and a strong quality control process, we will make sure that the manufacturer is able to maintain this level of quality through a larger order.
