At Write One Line, we are your write to a deeper life!
We all want to find happiness, contentment and success in life, but often the process of living a deeper more full fulfilling life seems time consuming and too complex. Because we live in a busy and distracted world we often resign ourselves to a shallow, unfilling life. But, what if you didn’t have to live this way?!
What if there was something simple you could do each day for 1 minute that could bring these powerful benefits to your life:
– Help you accomplish your goals – Improve your memory
– Strengthen your self-discipline – Make you more creative
– Give you more self confidence – Reduce your stress
– Solve problems more effectively – Strengthen your relationships
Believe it or not, all of these are actually possible through a 60 second daily practice! Each of these benefits have been scientifically proven to come through the practice of writing your thoughts in a journal. Take a moment to google “the benefits of writing in a journal" and see the massive amount of studies that have proven the power of this practice – It’s simply life changing!
And yet, as proven as it is, a majority of people never consistently write in their journal! It’s not that we don’t want to, because we know it’s a powerful practice! It’s simply that it seems too hard to start and stick with! The empty page can be intimidating and we don’t know where to start so we just never get started. For years this was true for me until I came up with a simple life-hack that made the practice easy – write one line!
The idea of “Write One Line" started a few years ago as a practice to help me grow. I like to say that I have been a journaler for 20 years but the truth is I might journal for 3 days and then not again for 3 years! Does that even count?! This was actually really frustrating because I believed in the power of writing in a journal but just couldn’t seem to do it consistently.
I knew if I was going to develop the practice, I had to make it simple and the simplest thing I could think of was “write one line"! Yup, that’s it! Take 60 seconds each day to write down a memory, an idea, a lesson I had learned, or anything really about the day. It honestly didn’t matter what I wrote, it mattered that I wrote and it was the key to unlocking the powerful benefits listed above.
It’s been pretty cool to not only see the benefits in my own life, but over the past couple years, others have picked up the practice and now hundreds of people across the country “write one line" each day to go to deeper more meaningful places!
One of the important lessons I learned about getting started is that it helps to have really nice tools that you enjoy using! One day, I was sitting with a friend who was sharing how much he loved the idea of “Write One Line", when he asked me “Don’t you make leather journals as a hobby?" “Yes", I replied. “You know, you should combine your write one line idea with your leather journals and make “Write One Line" leather journals so people could have a great artisan leather journal to write in!" I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this, but it was a great idea, and this is how “Write One Line" leather journals became a part of the write one line practice! Since then, I have added a few more leather products that tie into the vision of a deeper more meaningful life and my training and coaching practice continue to expand, but at the end of the day, everything I do at “Write One Line" is just about helping as many people as possible connect to a deeper, more meaningful life, one simple step at time!
So, thanks for exploring my site! I hope you will get started today by “Writing One Line" and if I can ever make a great leather product for you or lead you into a deeper life through coaching or training, please reach out by phone (678-896-8787 – my cell) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me directly!
