Chart Your Course: 52 Weekly Journaling Challenges from Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin provides consistent, step-by-step actions guiding you to building an improved life. Each week highlights a thought-provoking idea along with an appropriate Biblical citation and specific challenge.

Your goal may be to become a better spouse, parent or friend. It may be to attain a specific skill, increase your income or become more involved in your community’s affairs. Perhaps you want to live a healthier lifestyle or spend regular time in Bible study. Wanting to do more and to become more is a yearning that good people share. Yet, we all know the feeling of looking back at the end of a year, disappointed that we seem rather the same as we did a year earlier.

This journal is meant to be a record of achievement. That will, at times, include recognizing and charting failures. Write down your accomplishments and what you could have done better. Writing by hand has a proven effect on the brain.

Look for patterns. What activities and thoughts help you succeed, and which serve as obstacles in your way? Use the sayings and questions we provide as a jumping-off point for analyzing your day. You may find it helpful to scan the week’s saying and the daily challenge/question on the first morning of each week. Each day or week on its own will present a picture. The entire journal will present a video. If you truly spend some time each day reviewing your actions and thoughts in writing, by the end of the year your video will reveal a steady march to a better you.

    I began this “Journaling Challenge” on the first day of January of 2020 (although, you can begin it anytime). I have found it a very useful daily exercise (although, some days I have no entry, but I reflect and ponder the weekly waypoint). The journal allows you great flexibility while making very good suggestions towards self-improvement. It requires patience and diligence; but do not allow yourself to be rigid and uptight. The journal is a process and naturally requires time; a precious commodity as pointed out by the Lapins, but you are not wasting it in engaging this book. I enjoy the Scripture verses and being a Christian, I bring in weekly, companion verses from the New Testament. That being said, you do NOT need any religious affiliation to participate in this voyage. I plan to use this book by going beyond the 52 weeks and on into the new year. Doing so will allow me to continue to reflect on the weekly waypoints by adding personal notes and updating previous entries. In my opinion, this is not simply a book to be read; but a vehicle to a new and exciting destination … a NEW YOU!

      Really happy to hear from you George,
      It is always gratifying to know we are being helpful.
      You’re using the journal just the way we intended. Onwards and upwards
