I’ve been really enjoying using the journal, it’s been helping me to focus a lot more on what I can do and where to work towards without being over whelmed with everything . It’s beautifully crafted and it’s awesome seeing adventure quotes from different books/films.
I love this journal it makes everyday just a little more fun and the PDF let's the fun go everywhere I go if you are thinking about it try it I don't think you'll be disappointed.
This is an amazing journal! The artwork is fantastic! Whimsical and quirky, and totally cute... Just enough to get and keep my attention. So now I start my ADVENTURES..... THANKS!
I received my super red journal and am going through it with zealous enjoyment. There is so much to entertain me and it has practical use with setting up my goals and thoughts about my journey. And the magic enclosed inside the pages was a glittery surprise. I love it. I'm intrigued to turn the pages and I have to hold myself back to take it slow and really think about the answers I've been asked to provide. It is wonderful.
I love it!!! I use it everyday and I am so glad that I got it!!!
It’s honestly too early to tell whether this journal is going to make a huge impact on my life or not. However, I’ve tried a ton of different journals in my life, and this has been the first one that’s really grabbed me and actually made me look forward to using it rather than dreading it. That fact alone makes it worth the price of admission. The weight of the paper, the texture of the cover, the whimsy of the illustrations, the no-nonsense science-based approach. All of it speaks to me on a fundamental level. If you’re the type who loves tabletop games and wouldn’t be caught dead using a PDF over a dead tree at the gaming table, this is the journal for you.
I have used journals to help me stay organized for over a decade and this is by far the best one for me. I have yet to abandon it, as I have other journals in the past. Unicorn planner, I highly encourage others try it out.
This Journal has changed everything for me. I always struggled with journal/planning and tried dozens of different planners, however this one fixed that. I love how it just tells your story and makes you look at it in a different, yet creative way! I look forward to using this and keeping a collection of them. Not to mention they look incredible!
I'm enjoying this journal, it's been a great way to start my morning and ending my day. Set my goals for the day, the challenges I may overcome and what I can utilize to help achieve my goals. Then at the end of the day I'll reflect, write in the bullet journal how my day went and color the page to help wind down instead of playing on my phone. The only complaint I have is I wish there were more variety of pages. I was hoping each page would be different from one another, so I end up coloring the same picture over and over again.
This journal helps me to gather my thoughts more. Since I have not been able to focus. But it encourages me to write more. Because every entry is an adventure.
My journal is so pretty I hardly want to touch it! I bought it for myself, but it would make a great gift.
This journal is great! It's still hard for me to remember to use because ADHD, but when I do it is really good at helping me structure my next day and take into account some of the variables I might encounter. I wish this journal had a way to easily focus on multiple goals, but I'm working with it and it is really helpful.
After watching HowtoADHD's latest video, she recommended your journal and a friend and I decided to give it a try for some goals we had. We both have ADHD and have had trouble doing even basic tasks, so this felt like a tool we might be able to use to encourage both of us. I'm using the tracker right now for some of those basic tasks, and saving the journal for when the beginning of Fall semsester begins in August so I can document my progress. I've spent many years trying to finish college, having spent many years undiagnosed with ADHD, but was recently diagnosed, with not a lot of success. So far, I have ticked off over a week of keeping up some of my basic tasks every day on the tracker, and I feel pretty good seeing that progress. As a gamer and lover of fantasy, this really tickled my fancy. I hope to be able to add this journal to my toolbox of things to use as I navigate my diagnosis. That said, this journal has some real heft to it. The pages are a nice quality, and the designs on each page are making me want to color them! The texture on the cover reminds me of those book covers we were required to put on our textbooks in middle and high school, but it does seem to suit the journal. I appreciate the thoughtfullness put into each section of the journal itself. I look forward to beginning my academic quest in over a month! If this journal had existed when I was a kid, I'm sure I would have been way more excited about journaling!
This is my 11th day using the journal, and I'm still excited about it! I love that it is 90 days, and not a year like most journals. It's easy to commit to something for 3 months that would be too intimidating to maintain for a year. Both the daily schedule and the 3 to-dos have really helped me prioritize what I need to get done and make a plan on when/how to do it. I love using it as a coloring book as much as I love using it as a journal - It's a great creative outlet!
I love this journal and how it helps me stay on track with my goal/
I have kept a journal for years and do many of the things the Hero Journal has in it, but there is just something about the design that makes me work harder to clarify my plan, my action items and to stick to them and follow through. Great work. I'd love to see the artwork go in a more Classic D&D style, the ganky artwork style from the 70's D&D modules and magazines. https://i.somethingawful.com/u/elpintogrande/feb13/dndcover/01.jpg
I am very pleased with this journal! The quality of the cover and pages is great, and the artwork is lovely and engaging. But the best part is the system itself—it truly makes you feel like you’re embarking on a dramatic quest. It has definitely enhanced my focus and productivity—knowing I have those check-boxes waiting for me at the end of the day inspires me to complete the tasks, even when I’m tired or unwilling. And coming back to the fun sketches and quotes at the end of the day is a great reward. Great product overall, and highly recommend!
This journal is interesting and engaging to use. I tried bullet journaling, but spent more time constructing a layout than actually using it, This journal has already done the leg-work in terms of layout and it's a fun and easy format to work with. It's making my goals more fun to pursue.
The journal shocked me because I was already doing something roughly similar in an attempt to help my wayward brain add structure to my day. However, some of the daily sections I didn't have add room for some self reflection and proper processing of the day. It has changed my approach to how I perceive my day and the slow progress I am starting to make towards my goal. Plus, it takes a level of stress off of me as I don't have to manually create and set up my pages. Each page is nicely laid out for you with space for notes and even a spot to reaffirm your goal everyday. The journal itself feels so good and the cover is nice and thick. The paper is also nicely weighted, but I haven't tested coloring anything yet to see just how well the paper can take certain mediums. Over all I love this journal and I think it is worth trying out at least once!
Love my heroes journal! I now have at least one in every color and I have a few that are destined for gifts. Not only does this help me achieve goals big and small but it acts as a diary which helps clean out the clutter in my head.
First journal on this type I've ever gotten it looks good, looking forward to using it, hoping it helps.
I am really enjoying my Hero's Journal. It's helping me to turn a daunting creative project into the adventure I wanted it to be in the first place!
The Hero’s Journal is by far the best journal I have ever used. Not only do you have room to write notes throughout your day, but it motivates you to accomplish many goals. It does this using a time schedule, to-do list and a overall goal/ quest to achieve over the months. If you’re wondering wether to get this journal, I highly recommend it to any adventurer or hero out there.
While the Quest that I ordered this for has yet to begin, I am thoroughly enjoying immersing myself in the Journal's story and lore.....Using the journal as a Coloring Book has also been an excellent way to de-stress and familiarize myself with its functions. 10 out of 10 will by again!
Great way to gamify your goals. I am thinking I might need a couple more! Told my writing group about it today and two of them purchased one right away.
It's awesome I use it with my "Living the Hero's Journey" by Will Craig and I love that it doubles as a coloring book
This is a wonderful way to actually incorporate goal setting and visualization strategies into your day. I've heard of the tools the Hero's Journal uses, but the layout and design makes it approachable and much more fun!
This is such a great idea! I’m loving the concept and I enjoy coloring the pictures on each page also. (I wish the picture was different every day, but) I like the idea of allies, mine are fairly abstract but still a new way to think for me. The reflection pages are also really good. I am using the digital edition in Notability. I gave away the physical journal as a gift.
I love the box it came in! The journal is very well put together. The cover is beautiful. I love the quotes and encouragement on every page. The illustrations are charming. I've already included a link to your page in a blog post and I hope some customers come your way as a result. Well done. Beautiful product!
I could never really get into just regular journaling, I felt silly about writing about how my day went cause I'd have a lot of. "Ooh today was pretty okay, nothing happened" which was silly to me lol! With this journal I don't feel like I'm just writing nothing, I like the structure and the goal orientation of this one. It's actually helped a lot with keeping tabs on things I want to accomplish instead of just writing on some lined paper about things I hope I accomplish. If that makes sense.
I LOVE my Hero Journal! It keeps me productive and has helped me get back on track with writing my book. The art is lovely, the quotes are goofy and inspiring, and the page quality is incredible. Once this one fills up, I will definitely be getting another one!
Fun approach to achieving goals
I really love this journal, especially since it’s fountain pen friendly! The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is that I wish the paper wasn’t so dang yellow; otherwise, perfection!
Love this journal. I have a hard time keeping one, much less filling it up. I've looked forward to writing and coloring in the pages of this journal every day for nearly 2 weeks now, and am so excited to continue the journey! Beyond coloring the illustrated pages, each entry is structured in a way I haven't experienced before, and find so very helpful. I can't wait to get another journal for my next quest, and am looking forward to how this journal evolves over time.
What a creative way to help a person meet their goals! It's helping me come up with an actual strategy instead of just hoping I eventually get around to things.
I received my Journal a few weeks ago, I love it. It requires me to think and believe in myself, reminds me of all the good things that happen in my day to day life, and holds me accountable for my perception on life. What was an ad on Instagram, and telling myself "one day" I'm glad I decided to just take the dive and buy The Hero's Journal. Thank you, I appreciate what you have written.
This is the first journal that I think I'll be able to stick with... the prompts are extremely simple but the art and story of it all makes this book a playground for creative inspiration. You could use it like a regular to-do list with pretty pictures on the side, but I decided to create names for allies / enemies concepts such as "Mia the sorceress of pain" (migraines) as an enemy or "Brunschon the spirit of literature" (reading to relax) as an ally. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to any nerds or anyone who gets bored with a "regular" to do journal.
This is my favorite journal, and o e I’ve actually been able to keep writing in. I’ve had writers block for a long time, and having sections to fill out instead of a blank page has helped me get back into writing. The pages are thick and lovely, and the cover is gorgeous. You won’t regret starting your Hero’s Journey with this journal.
I was very excited to finally receive my Journal. Unfortunately, there was a shipping issue with me being at a P.O. Box, however, it arrived VERY EXPEDIENTLY as SOON as that was RESOLVED! Thank you so much...I'm enjoying getting into the Hero's Journal.
Loving the journal/planner so far. Wildwood Green was the perfect color selection for me, it coordinates well with all my plants! I have used other planners and journals but none as effective thus far as The Hero's Journal, which has been an excellent tool with my ADHD. It's fun and interactive without being too overwhelming, and the detailed guide at the beginning to get one started was very helpful for me. It not only helped me figure out in which way I wanted to utilize the planner, but also gave me enough direction to successfully jump into the first phase of my next small business idea! Plus, the option to color the pages are a great bonus, who doesn't love to color along? It's an all around win any way you look at it.
Love the pictures and prompts to go along with your Journey. I wish there was more stopping points and deep questions along the way.
Fantastic. The shipping was super fast. The planner itself is really cool. I like that it is easy to use and that when I feel like coloring a picture I can do it right in my planner. Will be purchasing more in the future
Glad that I made this purchase. It suits my personality and it has made such a difference. I was someone who was not at all excited to journal and now I look forward to it.
...It's gorgeous and it's so fun.
Beautiful book! I love the concept and well worth the money.
I absolutely love the layout and thought behind this journal. As a lover of adventure thinking of tasks as quests has really helped spin my perspective on it all. My journey, my adventure, on my time, and a lovely storyline to follow along. Can't get better than that.
I love my Hero’s Journal. It’s a nice, solid book. The paper is thick and high quality. Ink doesn’t bleed through. I have everything I need to start working on getting organized. I plan on being a repeat customer. 10/10!
It's great and a really great size for traveling and fits perfectly into my bag. I really love how you can color it in and let your mind curate what you think your journey would look like along the way!!
I’m the type to always abandon journals after two days. It’s been several weeks so far with the hero’s journal and I still use it every day. This journal is perfect, and really so helpful for achieving goals. I’m so happy I’ve finally found something that keeps me engaged in my own goals! You’ve just got yourself a life long customer!
A great addition to my morning routine.
I absolutely love it!
I'm a serial Planner Abandoner. I like the idea of a planner, but I can't stick with it very long. I got this planner because I liked the idea that it had flexible areas for writing (I'm a writer, so i use it most for writing notes to myself about my very complicated plots). It turns out that I also like the fact that it's undated, because I have such big story ideas that I can't always complete them all in one day. So it's turned out to be more of a story "brain overflow" book than a planner, and that's ok with me. I like how high quality it is and I enjoy writing in it. My one thing that I wish was different was that the coloring sections are the same each day. They don't all need to be unique, but it would be helpful if they rotated each day and weren't the same back to back. I use the coloring pages as I am mulling over stuck areas in my story, so it would be nice to see something different from the day before. Thanks!!
I'm using it to motivate and inspire me as I make a very big life transition. There are many aspects to it - both problems and questions. It really does help me be braver and more confident to keep at it.
I feel so much more put together with this journal- it helps me take stock of my day and stick to a schedule and habits that align with my goals.
I'm not that far into the journal right now, but I've already found it to be really helpful! It helps me schedule my day and focus on what I need to get done in a fun way.
Bought this as an anniversary present for my partner and he loved it! The only thing is I wish there was a way to get the encouraging emails sent to him instead of me after I gave him the journal. I originally needed them sent to me as I ordered it early to give time for shipping but now that he has it I have no use for the emails
I'm only about 20 pages into my first journal, which was a gift, but I had to order this one for myself so I would have another ready to go. I love the Hero's Journal!
I ordered the purple one and it came in a beautiful box. Then I opened that and saw the most beautiful journal. It is better than I expected. And I am more motivated with this journal than any other. It's awesome.
It was so good someone stole it. But don’t worry my husband got me a new one right away.
It was quick to get here and I really enjoy using the electronic version of it. The royal purple is deep and I love it. The pages are a bit off white instead of white like I was expecting but it's fine. Really nicely made-so nice I might not use the purple physical book and just use the electronic version!
I received my Hero's Journal and I been enjoying it immensely! So much so, that I actually ordered a few more journals to use for more future goals I have in mind. I am currently using my journal to track my quarterly performance goals at work and it has helped a great deal to organize my tasks and goals in a fun and enjoyable way! I actually brought it up to my manager, and he though it was such a great idea that he is asking me to go over it with my colleagues during our weekly touch base meeting this week. Hopefully I can attract more people to use these journals to achieve their professional and/or personal goals. Thank you all for your hard work in developing the Hero's Journal!
I'm enjoying the simplicity of planning my day - when I want to plan it -and then being able to colour it all in!
It's hard to choose one goal but the journal has been keeping me focused on the positive things in my life and productive on important things.
Only just started but it's really wonderful so far! I love coloring the pages while I think about my day and progress. Thinking about my goals as a quest is really a fun/interactive way to work on something!
I LOVE my journal! It has been so helpful in keeping me on track, and grounded with the duality gratitude entry. If I’m stressed I can color in the drawings and it helps me think about what I have in my corner each day and what I have to watch out for. I’m so glad I ordered it!
I enjoy the planner and also the small notes section, it helps me journal but not go to a dark place. I really enjoy color/painting the black and white artwork. I wish each page had a different picture. So far, so good.
Hero's Journal has been an amazing benefit to my Eating Disorder Recovery. I struggled journaling because I found it to be boring until I found Hero's Journal! I use it to set myself goals and remind myself of the importance of the journey I am on. My therapist loves that I can use the hero's journal as an anchor for my mental health. I start and end my day with it every day and it makes journaling fun. I also love the emails from my mentor to keep me going! Thank you for making this, you are changing lives.
The journal is fun to use. Getting into habit of starting each day and ending each day with my thoughts is very easy with this journal. The art is great and makes the adventure of my journey even better!
I adore this journal more than any journal I’ve ever had. I read once that if you think of yourself as a hero in your story you’re more likely to overcome obstacles because instead of “this terrible thing is happening to me” it’s just a challenge on your quest that has to be conquered. I want to think of my struggles that way and this journal absolutely helps that and gives me a jumping point from which to learn more about myself in the process. The artwork is adorable and easy to make your own by coloring or doodling which make it more fun. I love that there is digital copies for me to continue on this journey but honestly I’m sure I’ll be buying more in different colors. I think I found my new investment for myself. Thank you for making this a thing!
Great incentive to get things done. Love the little hero and journeying with him. And enjoy checking off what I accomplished.
I love this planner. My only wish is that we could get set up with a rocketbook version.
I love this journal so much! It's really been helpful in helping me organize my to-do lists and stay motivated to do my work. I'm a graduate student and work gets very overwhelming sometimes, but this journal has been such a great support.
This journal was purchased as a surprise gift for my daughter who is graduating from high school! To begin a quest this summer, I thought she might enjoy the creativity of this journal. (She plans to be an author and she is an artist.;) I'll have to let you know what she thinks of the journal. (I'm pretty sure she is going to LOVE it!) Kind regards, Julie Barton
It is beautiful!
This is my second physical journal, but even before having them, I used the digital version to stay on track with completing my life dream of publishing a novel. Now, I use one to track mental and physical health and the other to settle into a new job. I’ve always been a writer but struggled with journaling. This product changed everything, and I won’t ever look back.
I have never been able to stick with a journal before, but I honestly still look forward to writing in this 2 weeks after starting! It's already helped me so much with discipline in completing my quest.
Love the creativity and the words of respect and encouragement throughout. The quality of the binding is fantastic and you get a bookmark with it, which is great because they were out of bookmarks when I wanted to get some. My ONE criticism is at this price point, why not go recycled paper and eco binding and ink? We need Earth heroes right now, and putting out a product in alignment with that would be more in brand. Hope you grow into that.
It's been a slow first act, but the call has been answered and I'm so excited to begin the journey
I absolutely love this journal. It's helping me keep my mental health organized if that makes sense. I love the undated pages because I am a new mom and miss days because of time. I will be getting more.
The Heroes Journal has helped me keep focused and plan time in my day for the tasks I want to complete. Taking time to write out my allies and threats helps put into words the things that help me and the things to avoid.
So far I am really loving this journal! Unfortunately for me I wasn't here for the Kickstarter for the istoria magic academy but I cant wait until they both are on the store!
I purchased this for my daughter's "Mothers Day Gift" as she wanted it so much! She Loves it! Thanks So Much
This Journal totally changed the way I go about setting goals and accomplishing the things I want in life. I feel more empowered and focused than ever, couldn’t recommend this enough!!
Great take on setting goals and accomplishing them. Love the illustrations and it definitely keeps me motivated to pick it up each day.
I love it so much and love the ability to custom my hero and color in the pictures
I love this approach to journaling because I love RPG games. I enjoy identifying the threats and allies and when I don't feel like writing, I color the pictures! This is a quality journal, it feels substantial, like an old book. 10/10, will adventure again with Hero Journal!
This journal is a game changer! I have ADHD, so sticking habits like journaling can be a bit of a challenge, but the Hero's Journal structures the process and keeps it easy, interesting, and engaging. I LOVE IT!
I’m very happy with this journal. It’s beautiful, well put together. The paper is quality. The quest prompts are perfect for keeping the hero on track. Glad I made this purchase.
I have purchased many a journal but this is the ONE that actually motivates me and holds my attention. Love it!
I like how each day feels like an adventure. I can see the accomplishments.
I purchased this as a gift for a close friend and he absolutely adores it. He was blown away. My only criticism would be the lack of "this is a gift" options. I would have loved to not send the invoice with the gift or perhaps add a note of who it was from. But otherwise it was just what I wanted to give him and he is over the moon with it. Thanks!!
This journal has been a really fun way for me to keep track of my goals! It has helped me stay focused, positive, and on track with what I want to accomplish! Best purchase ever! Not only helping me mentally but physically as well!
I will admit that I was a bit unsure if this journal would live up to the pricetag, but it absolutely has! This is the first time I have ever reliably kept a journal and kept an end goal in mind. I love the art work, the daily layout, and the ability to identify what my enemies are every day! I will absolutely be purchasing the 4 pack set after I finish this journal! It helps you focus on realistic tasks and goals each day, while also maintaining a mentality of gratefulness! Perfect for someone wanting to keep better track of their life and goals.
I love the journal so much. I bought the Mountain Grey and I'm about two weeks in, and it really helps me stay motivated through my day. I will buy it after I finish this one!
Journey before destination, my friends. I’m a marriage and family therapist, spirituality and faith are important to me, and I LOVE stories. This journal hits every point with precision, and I SO appreciate your efforts to make it (and a community) focused on journeying well together. Starting and using this journal has been a tremendous help to keep the STORY in mind, which has helped bring abstract and defined responsibilities to the fore. Thank you so much. I’m loving this!!
I wanted to get this since I saw it on kickstarter. Now that I finally committed, it has been A huge motivation for my future plans! I don’t want to say I couldn’t have done it without it... but without it I may have never gotten started. Thank you!
I've always been wary of journals with specific templates than just open noted journals. However, this was recommended to me by someone, and it was such a good recommendation! The templates are specific enough to keep me guided, but also open-ended enough so that I don't feel constrained. Thank you!
I can honestly say, I love it. I loved coloring the pages of Act 1 as I reflected on my North Star. It’s fun and rewarding to complete a quest and see a little more of my “map” filled in. With the dateless structure, I don’t feel bad if I miss a day; I just get to pick up my story where I left off. Even though sometimes I may not complete a task, the allies and I’m grateful for sections keep this an encouraging tool. The adventure/fantasy structure and the guiding beginning pages with the mentor is great and makes my little geek heart happy.
