I will resolve in proportion how useful they seem for me in particular. This is, unfortunately, arbitrary. If enough people comment asking for it, I will instead resolve to MKT

Associate it with another existing habit, ie after you brush your teeth

Identify a set of points that you cover every day, so you always have something to write.

Do you keep a physical journal or a doc on a computer?

@juan I keep a synced notebook using Joplin. I've tried physical ones in the past and it's typically not lasted more than a half dozen entries

@LivInTheLookingGlass Have you tried other solutions (I'm especially thinking of trilium here)

@JoyVoid very occasionally, but I find that the sync feature really matters to me, and I already keep a bunch of other notes in Joplin
