Issue 10: It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Core News

Happy Holidays!

If you’re like us, you’re probably already fully thrown yourself into the holiday spirit.

Whether you’ll be staying at home baking cookies and putting up your Christmas tree, or jet-setting across the world, we hope your holidays are filled with cheer.

Happy Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and also one of the busiest!

Are you running around getting last minute presents, throwing together dinner plans, and catching up with friends?

While this is often a time that work is put on hold to enjoy time with friends and family, it doesn’t mean your SELF Journal can’t still be a lifesaver!

Remember, your SELF Journal is there to keep you on track – whatever your goals are.

And your goal this holiday season may be to simply enjoy this magical time of the year with the people you love.

Use your SELF Journal to write down everything you’re grateful for during this time – and all the life lessons you may learn.

Remember, productivity isn’t about doing work all the time. It just means spending your time on the activities that matter most to you – including spending time with the people you love.

 

Lessons Learned

It’s been a crazy year for Best Self Co.

We launched our Kickstarter way back in August of 2015 but we didn’t really get out in the wild until the beginning of this year.

We just created a product we knew we loved and hoped you guys would too – and you did.

This year, we’ve had the honor of reading thousands of messages from all of you – about the ways you’ve transformed your lives and became your Best Self.

They’ve been so inspirational to us and you have been the ones keeping us going.

We started with the SELF Journal and now we have over 10 products in our store (don’t worry, there’s still plenty more coming).

There’ve been hundreds of lessons learned from all those product launches.

But one lesson in particular stands out.

Do what makes you proud and the rest will follow.

Do What Makes You Proud

Especially in the world of product development, it’s easy to get caught up in what’s “trending” or trying to figure out what the “next big thing” is going to be.

In fact, it happens no matter what your goal may be.

But don’t chase. Lead.  

If you make/do/create things you’re proud of – you’ve already won.

And when you’ve created something you can proudly stand behind, people will notice.

So whatever project you’re working on right now – whether it’s building a company or improving your health – focus on achieving results you’re proud of.

 

Customer Stories

We started the Customer Shares prize bundle a few months ago.

Many of you post such great photos of your journals and wall roadmaps that we wanted to say thank you.

Here’s a flashback to the winners from each week so far:
