When I was a student, I was too lazy to write entire journal entries but I still wanted to develop my self awareness.
In my journal, I would write just a few keywords that best described what was on my mind at the time instead of writing a full blown entry.
That’s how the concept of Cogitorama was born.
The name Cogitorama comes from the latin “cogito” (thought) and the greek “-orama” (see).
I guess you could see it a bit like the Twitter of journaling, you keep the essential of journaling.
Let me give you an example, my cogitorama for today would be:
+australia +weekplan -bangkok -tired -hot
(As you can see, I am not a big fan of Bangkok…)
I prefix the positive keywords with a +, and the negative ones with a –.
The Cogitorama extension for Week Plan
In Week Plan, you can enable an extension to be able to use the Cogitorama concept, it looks like that:
Positive keywords are in green, negative in red.
The keywords that are used more regularly get shown bigger. Also, there is a global positivity score for the day to show you how you are feeling over time.
I hope some of you will find it useful!
