I am trying to get out and be more social after the pandemic and this journal and side quests allows me to view my life as more of an adventure and less like everyday blah. It is working to inspire me to do more and be better. Thank you for existing.
I love this journal. I thought this would be a fun way to track my goal of learning new IT tools and starting a new job, and it definitely is. It feels like the journal believes in me even if I don't. When I feel down or defeated that I can't pick something up quickly, I just go re-read the first few pages. It's very inspiring and motivational. I'm looking into getting a second one to track other quests in my life. The only think I could ask for is a blank, lined companion journal to go along with the planner journal. I love the look and feel of this and would love to have one that's blank with the same look. Companion journal or no, this product is a 10/10 and I am happy to buy again!
These journals have really changed how I look/think about things. I'm starting a new online store, while updating my current website and needing to bring some organisation to my life in general. Needless to say I was a little overwhelmed and more times than not ended up doing nothing. When I first received my order and was just looking through the journals, I realised something. Instead of thinking in a big picture 'I need to do all this' way. I should be thinking one day at a time and in a smaller way (at lest when it comes to achieving the big picture). E.g Starting an online store. What are the first steps? Name, logo, any government stuff you might need. Ok not so hard, so my quest for the day will be. Decided on a name, next quest find someone I like to do a logo and so on. Thinking of things like this has really helped. Also I love that they don't have dates or day/weeks, I always found dated planners a bit depressing and after awhile I would stop using them. For instance, it has taken me a long time to get a logo because I couldn't find the right graphic designer and I know if I kept seeing a date every time I saw that page, it wouldn't have made me fell good. Sometimes things take longer than you expected and thats ok.
I bought this as a gift for my friends and they are so enthralled!
The days I fill things out are the days I'm most productive. I love the theme and the way each page is setup to guide me through my goals.
your journal makes journaling fun! I never would partake in this activity but now i look forward to it and i find it actually helps me clear my mind. One thing though i think more variation between pages would be cooler. sometimes it feels like the same art during the week , i know our character is going on a quest but when i looked through the pages when i first bought your journal I thought i was looking at the same page until i looked closer. other than that great job. sorry for my spelling and grammatical errors
I do love this journal but it still lacks a place for me to put all the goals I want to reach so I don’t lose track of them. I love coloring and focusing on priorities. But I didn’t have a place to put down all my long term goals so I could see the overall map.
I have been in love with this journal. The support team was great when I had trouble with my PDF files. Writing in my Hero’s Journal has become an integral part of my day.
I really like the experience and it’s very unique. I wish though the digital Verizon would be more Apple Pencil friendly and you would even be able to draw/color the pages.
This is a very fun way to journal. I am using this with my therapist and she likes the way it is organized and that it's in a fun manner. Especially with someone dealing with ADHD, I sometimes have trouble organizing everything or being aware of everything, so this is a very helpful tool. Keep up the good work!
I wish i would have waited a few more days and got 2 physical copies for myself and my spouse. Digital is fine, but paper just feels better
So happy with this, I printed it out as soon as I had a chance. Love the illustrations so far and keen to work through my quests. If I could afford the international shipping I would buy at least 2 more, hopefully one day!
I wish there was a way that if within a certain period of days we decided the digital version wasn't for us, we could put that purchase toward the physical one. To be out $20 to want to upgrade to physical (which comes with digital) and pay an additional $50-60 is a big hit. I want to love the journal. And honestly prefer coloring the pages on my iPad, but the daily art does not change in the digital version like the physical version. So you get 10 pages of the exact same art, with new quotes, and then a very short reflection page, and then 10 more pages of the repeated art... I just lost my excitement for it. So if you were expecting the digital version to be similar to the physical -- skip it. It's not the same version of the journal. Just kind of disappointing, honestly.
I like this because its like journaling but so much more interesting. Highly recommend
I love the design and the idea. The quotes on every page is helpful. I just wish the days started on Monday.
I love the Hero’s Journal and already plan to purchase more journals for friends and family! This is the only journal/planner I have ever found myself using consistently, even if I skip a day or two I always end up using it again. I use the journal and the habit tracker in GoodNotes on my iPad, when I get bored I use the highlighter to color in the beautiful images surrounding my day-to-day schedules and lists. As a busy college student I would recommend this journal and brand to anyone and everyone
Overall, I am really enjoying the journal. I just want that clear. Two things I would change. Get more artwork so that you aren’t seeing the exact same pictures throughout each individual act. I was bummed when I saw that because the pictures tell the story of your progression and 30 days of no visual progression is discouraging. The second thing I would change is expand the notes section and give less floor space to allies and threats. Maybe even less picture for more notes which would would also help with the first thing I would change since your pictures could be stretched out further.
Since I was able to print it out I customized the outside. I love it so far, I think it will help me organize my way through my quest.
Love this journal! You'll be astonished at how the mythic motif clarifies what's going on in your life and helps you progress on your path. Both the digital and paper version of Hero's Journal offer different benefits. I chose the digital version for my dream working quest and am getting the paper version for my business quest.
I love this journal. Helps me stay motivated. I actually especially like the Digital version because it is so easy to change things there if my schedule or goals change.
I love my journal so far! I got the digital version and it has been a great new journal/planner as my husband and I embark on our quest to become self-sufficient homesteaders.
Super fun layout!!!
Having read Joseph Campbell, Jane McGonigal, and Steven Kamb's books on the hero's journey and gamification I had already had many of the concepts that the Hero's Journal tries to incorporate. I have been playing my own version of "Level up your life" with my bullet journal and some personal quests/goals. I purchased the digital version because I knew I would be modifying the lay out and use. I really love many of the things used. The stages of the journey, the timed reviews, the gratitude section, the focus on the current task with goal alignment, and listing out your blockers as enemies...all great steps in getting your goal accomplished. It's a great start. I think most folks will eventually modify the system if they stick with it. The big thing I had to add was a leveling system, but that was in order to engage my personal motivation. I would recommend the digital version to anyone looking to use gamification to get themselves into better life habits. Well done.
This is the beautiful journal I have ever received and I started coloring it, And slowly making my way to starting it!
This journal has helped me to actually find a way to let out my stress and maintain my sanity. The quest concept helps me feel like - I know it won’t be done in a day. No hero’s quest was ever won in a day, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have victories along the way!
Nontechy person purchased a digital journal. Instructions for what app needed to actually use without needing to print would be nice. Now that I have the correct app on tablet, I can type in it. Just haven't figured out how to color it yet. If I could get everything working I would give it 5 stars.
I purchased this after using the April quarantine quest print-outs. I love it. The illustrations are super cute and it makes work fun and feel like an adventure instead of drudgery (I use it exclusively at my work). My home life is a bit too complicated to manage with only three main tasks, but it's perfect for work!
I have the digital version. Although my journey has just begun, I've never felt so focused on a dream or confident that it could become reality.
I've been doing the quarentine quest for April & May, and have really loved the community built up around everyone doing what they can to achieve their goals. It's been beautiful, and really helpful during this scary, uncertain time.
I am loving the digital journal. Being able to print the pages have allowed my child to color while I do the rest. The price is wonderful especially now with money being right during the virus chaos.
