Walt Hopkins’ Journaling Passport is a practical yet inspiring guide to keeping a Journal, which can become a lifelong, rewarding ‘habit’. Walt’s sets of Seven Learnings come from the idea of Seven Laws—which he first learned about in a wonderful book by Michael Phillips called The Seven Laws of Money. He tells of the ancient Taoist tradition of developing seven laws by starting at the centre and then moving through a series of polarities to something that transcends the sequence.
Since Walt prefers Learnings instead of Laws, he uses the Taoist process to develop Seven Learnings about whatever he is learning. This Passport is a summary of what he has learned in the past 59 years of keeping a Journal. These are not laws. These are learnings that may—or may not—work for you as you write in your own Journal. Here are Walt’s Seven Learnings about Journaling: 1. Write Now – 2. Write Regularly – 3. Write Irregularly – 4. Write What I Think – 5. Write How I Feel – 6. Go Beyond Writing – 7. Live to Write
