Readers of Jobacle.com and listeners of the Working Podcast know that we are big fans of maintaining a work diary. It’s a great way to analyze your emotions and get clarity on situations you are in. It will also come in VERY handy when it comes time to state your case for a promotion or raise.
Most of us don’t remember what happened yesterday, let alone a few months ago.
A new Website, Memiary, hopes to jog your memory. The dot com lets you keep a private online diary. What makes the product unique is that it forces the user to be succinct; allowing you to identify up to five things that you do not want to forget.
While the product can be used for any type of feeling, we recommend setting up an account and using it exclusively for work-related issues. Log your accomplishments, setbacks, emotions, and so on. Here’s an idea of what a daily entry looks like.
Keeping a log will let you spot trends and quickly identify potential problems. You’ll thank us later for the advice, trust me.
