Q&A a Day: Five-Year Journal

#UD8132     $16.99

What song is stuck in your head? What are you looking forward to? What makes "you" you? Who is the craziest person in your life? What word did you overuse today? What was your prevailing emotion of the day? What's the last dream you remember? Who is your nemesis? What new activity have you tried? Who would play you in a movie about your life? What is your motto? If you were a literary character, who would you be? In three words, describe your love life. Where do you find joy?

The Q&A a Day Journal asks you one question a day (see the examples above), and then asks it again exactly one year later, for five years. Just jot down your daily response and, half a decade later, you'll have a fascinating chronicle of "you" - the changes, the constants, the big events, the little nothings. What a unique and clever diary! See Q&A a Day for Kids here.

                        This was such a clever idea. Each day during the year you are given a question to answer. Then every year you answer it again for 5 years. Interesting to see how attitudes may change or deepen. I think this a great tool for communication for couples. I gave two to my son and daughter-in-law. Now I want one too!

                              What an simple, easy way to capture yourself! Every day, for 5 years. I work 13 hour days and it is a delight to stop and answer a question that reveals me, for myself or others later. Shortly after starting mine, I bought 4 more for my daughters and the men they love. They're thrilled. A great gift for you or anyone!

                                  I'm a critter of extremes, sometimes making short lists, sometimes writing pages and pages. This compact volume helps me to write some notation every day, sparking longer entries in a personal journal, encouraging me to write at least something every day. Wonderful way to see your changes in focus across time.

                                      I am finding this product to be thought provoking. Since it is, in essence, a 5 year daily diary of personal answers to the question of the day, I do fill in the small amount of space allowed daily. (I would be very interested in knowing what method, if any, was used in determining the question of the day.) While I usually am able to put down my response in the space allowed, I sometimes wish for another line or two. I think about what I am going to say before beginning to write, but can not always complete what I wish to enter in the space allowed. However, I do realize with the objective of getting 5 years' worth of answers on a single page, space is at a premium. I have been doing this for two months now, and I look forward to the question that will be asked each day. A thought provoking item indeed, and one I am enjoying very much. I can't wait until a year is up, and I start the second one with comparisons of what has gone before.
