    True indeed. I find that my design works are much more in depth once I'm doing Masters in Architecture where we are required to write and explain our project through Design Access Statement and Manifesto. I realized during my working years before masters, that most architect designers simply pitch a concept which merely look pretty on paper with no value to it. I believe is critical for us to play the role of improving the living standards of society and not leave this theory in school.

    Best Wishes. Looking forward to hearing how YOUR journaling affects your design process. Writing it out and Speaking it out are GREAT ways to activate Left Brain and connect to Right Brain. Interesting that you mention the intersection with graphic design. Through a connection here on Good Is (Thank you so much Good Is!) I will be leading a workshop with a group of Graphic Designers in NYC in June about how to more deeply connect with, engage and elicit the Story from clients in order to create an even better design concept. Part of the process is also knowing one's own Story; What are our own passions & how does that intersect with our work. Etc. Writing out that Story helps us understand the perception through which we view the world, our work and how that connects with our collaborators, clients. Etc.
    PS I started gratitude journaling in 1999, seriously impacted my life and way of thinking. Highly recommend journaling however you do it.

    Have you read "How to Stay Sane" by Philippa Perry? It's from The School of Life- she talks about the fact that journaling helps you reflect- and reflection is a huge part of recognizing who you are and how you interact with people. Great read. I highly recommend it.
