    I made it to day 26 before I couldn't take it anymore. I was not prepared for how poorly thought-out and executed this would be. It reads like it was written using a freelance posting with little time or money allocated to it. It should have been a red flag with the morning exercises said they were "morning reflections" instead of the "morning preparations" they should be. The daily questions are just taken directly from The Daily Stoic with no thought at all put into changes to better support d I made it to day 26 before I couldn't take it anymore. I was not prepared for how poorly thought-out and executed this would be. It reads like it was written using a freelance posting with little time or money allocated to it. It should have been a red flag with the morning exercises said they were "morning reflections" instead of the "morning preparations" they should be. The daily questions are just taken directly from The Daily Stoic with no thought at all put into changes to better support daily journaling. The daily questions vary in quality, but are always short and usually ambiguous. The ambiguity can be extremely frustrating to deal with on a daily basis. The one that pushed me over the edge was the morning reflection of "What is my mantra today?" That's it. The journal's claim to work without The Daily Stoic falls apart here. The weekly lesson doesn't mention what a mantra is and is only loosely related. The weekly lesson is around growth. If you don't have a mantra or experience with what it is, then a daily journaling exercise just turned into hours of time spent researching and developing a mantra. And then reflecting on the mantra that same day is complete nonsense. If a mantra is important you could organize an entire week's worth of journaling around that single topic. If it is not important, then why is it here? This is the very antithesis of stoic thought. I'm throwing this book away and never looking back. I will continue to read The Daily Stoic and will look elsewhere for support and guidance in daily journaling. I will most likely stop reading The Daily Stoic on a daily basis though. It makes more sense for me to dedicate a night a week where I can explore outside the book to provide greater context and meaning, as well as spending time reflecting that varies with my experience or interest in a topic.

    This was okay, then tedious, and then I just followed along. Many of the prompts start being redundant and not that interesting.

    Not very useful without one of the companion books. Should have been bundled together.

    This is not really a book by the classical definition. It has prompts that derive from the stoic philosophy and space so that you can write down your thoughts that respond to them. There is a question per day in order to reflect in the morning and at night. I’m too impatient to follow the day by day prompts as I felt some of them didn’t really resonate with me and were questions that people take a lifetime to answer, not just a day (eg “what is my purpose in life?”).

However I did enjoy it and will surely think of it as a nice gift. I used it in a bit of different way: copied all the questions that did seem to resonate with me on my notepad to change the order and frequency. Somehow I also think it would make a nice card deck with questions, as school of life has. Maybe one day :)

    Enjoyed the journal as this was my first try at being consistent with a practice of journaling. I loved the stoic questions and especially the weekly quotes and intention setting. If you are someone who enjoys the principals and wants to practice journaling, this is a great starter!

    It was a very handy journal, and I loved the weekly topics. My one gripe was that trying to answer the daily questions was difficult as they often seemed incongruous, especially in the morning, so I often ignored those and just wrote what I wanted.

    Disappointing. Buy the more detailed Daily Stoic book and use a blank journal and save your money.

    I loved these daily meditations! Most of them were brilliant and forced me to think about parts of my life that I wouldn't think of otherwise. Two downsides were: it would be difficult to understand some questions without Daily Stoic book; some of the questions ask the same thing in a different form, so you may encounter repetition.

    Wonderful, timeless passages that were strongly needed for inspiration and hope during 2020. I plan to start all over tomorrow, in the new year, and every year.

    Questo libro l'ho "letto", adesso mi accingo a "scriverlo". Vi meraviglierete di quello che dico, ovviamente. Proprio così. L'ho "letto", adesso devo "scriverlo", devo scrivere il "mio" libro, quello che l'autore ha saputo con intelligenza propormi, tanto da farmi acquistare non solo questo, (che poi tutto sommato libro non è, è soltanto un diario), ma anche quell'altro libro su cui ha costruito il suo lavoro, la sua ricerca, sullo stoicismo.

L'ho "letto", adesso devo "scriverlo", devo scrivere il "mio" libro, quello che l'autore ha saputo con intelligenza propormi, tanto da farmi acquistare non solo questo, (che poi tutto sommato libro non è, è soltanto un diario), ma anche quell'altro libro su cui ha costruito il suo lavoro, la sua ricerca, sullo stoicismo. Perchè di questo si tratta. Sono due i libri, in effetti. Uno sullo stoicismo, con 366 meditazioni sulla saggezza, la perseveranza e l'arte di vivere, il tutto visto giorno per giorno, nell'arco di un anno. L'altro libro, invece, questo, appunto, è il diario che il lettore deve scrivere, sempre giornalmente, sulla falsariga di quello che l'autore, Ryan Holiday, ha proposto nell'altro libro. Nel mio blog spiegherò l'operazione di lettura e scrittura che mi propongo di fare nell'arco dei prossimi giorni. Anzi, nel prossimo anno. Spero così, con il nuovo anno, di fare quello che non sono mai riuscito a fare nel corso di questi quattro decenni di letture e di scritture: portare a completamento un diario scritto per un anno intero. Lo stoicismo mi sembra essere non solo una filosofia tanto nobile quanto antica, ma anche il modo giusto per dare un senso al tempo che mi resta da vivere. Ogni giorno dovrò impegnarmi a dare una risposta ad una precisa domanda che il libro mi pone nell'arco di ogni giorno che passa. A pensarci bene, dovrò rispondere a ben 366 domande (l'autore ne propone 366, ha calcolato anche l'anno bisestile!), suddivise in 52 settimane. Cosa ne verrà fuori davvero non so dire. So per certo che il tutto mi servirà per dare un senso a quello che faccio, leggo scrivo e penso. Vi pare poco? Se volete sapere come va a finire, seguitemi qui nella mia biblioteca o sul blog.

    I am grateful for the entire year 2019 of Stoic journaling with (and in) this book. Every single day, every morning (mostly when other family members were still asleep), by myself, immersed in a deep introspection, self-reflection, examination of conscience, slowly becoming a better version of myself.

    Great companion to the Daily Stoic. It took me a few extra weeks past the end of the year, but I managed to write an entry for all 366 days in the journal. A hugely valuable exercise.

    I enjoyed the ritual of reflecting with prompts like this everyday.
