Jim Kleiber and iFeelio on JournalTalk

For Those With Absolutely NO TIME To Keep a Journal…

Jim Kleiber and iFeelio on JournalTalkJournal-writing can’t get any easier than this.

Checking in with your feelings — being aware of what’s alive inside you — is the Ground Zero for living a life of passion, clarity and purpose. In this episode, I interview Jim Kleibera leader in helping people do just that.

Jim has quite a few inspiring stories to share, and when you hear him speak, you’ll likely notice the power of authenticity that he exudes. Jim trained himself to routinely acknowledge his own emotions using an app he designed for himself, called iFeelioBy mastering that one simple skill, he has learned so much about himself and his own world, that now he’s being invited, literally, all over the planet, teaching the art of emotional self-defense, helping people of many nations sew together the threads in the fabric of world peace.

You may know I manage two websites, Write4Life.com is about tips and techniques for journal-writing, and EasyJournaling.com shares the electronic tools of the trade. I enjoy teaching best practices with journaling apps for your desktop computer, tablet, or even smartphone. Although iFeelio is not exactly a journal-writing app, I’ve never seen a more clever tool for recording your feelings. It asks two simple questions: “What am I feeling, in this moment right now?” And, “What’s happening?” In thirty seconds (or less), you can compose a complete journal entry.

Picture of the iFeelio appI recommend giving it a try, especially if you are one of those people with absolutely NO TIME for keeping a journal, and yet you’re smart and aware enough to understand the value of “checking in” with yourself on a frequent basis. (JournalTalk, Episode #57, June 30, 2015)

Journaling for the Next Generation


In case you thought I only interviewed beautiful women, I had to prove that there are other men who enjoy discussing their journaling habits!  This episode, I’m pleased to introduce Sam, nick-named the “Digital Journaling Guru”.  Sam’s perspective is unique on several levels. An accomplished Civil Engineer with strong family values, he speaks about helping people ensure their writings safely reach future generations.

Sam and his wife Tiffany, started EasyJournaling.com for people who feel they journal better on a keyboard than by hand.  In fact, Sam has diplomatically settled the debate between those who type and those who hand-write, by stating it depends on your goal:  If you’re looking to preserve your writing for the future, using the latest technology is your key.  Sam has formulated a free online selection tool called BestJournalApp.com to help you figure out which journaling application should suit your needs best.

Sam is barely thirty years old, and yet has as much experience journaling as I have!  He’s been documenting his life (at the wise prompting of his parents) since the tender age of eight!  Now with children of his own, Sam advocates journaling as one of several effective ways to capturing life’s lessons and precious memories.  For writing prompts and guides, Sam respectfully points his followers back to myself and other journaling coaches.  But Sam is delighted to offer expert advice on best practices for digitizing, editing, securing, backing up, and printing your journal entries.  In our conversation, we discuss his brand-new podcast, Capturing Life Through Technology, as well as his plans for an upcoming Digital Journaling University!  Along the way, we discuss his book, 101 Reasons To Write a Journal, and exchange ideas about family newsletters, upgrading videos, photography and more.
