Are you reaping the rewards of journaling?

“Extraordinary leadership requires seeing before others see, understanding before others understand, and acting before others act.” ~ Nancy Adler, Want to Be an Outstanding Leader? Keep a Journal

The answer that many leaders have found is keeping a personal journal. Initially, this may seem banal. But research and many leader testimonials support the benefits of this personal practice.
