I get asked about journaling all the time, so I figured it would be helpful to do a short episode on the processes and reasons behind why I do it and recommend it to everyone I coach.

Today's episode is a bit more of a self-reflection spoken into a mic, rather than the normal Thursday show. In last week's episode with Greg Walsh, he used the term Expert Generalist, and the moment he said it I had a bit of an epiphany. I realized that that philosophy has been my approach to much of life, but just did have a word for it! So today …
