I love The Miracle Morning - I will continue to use it and to recommend it every time I can, because I know how good it is.
But The 6-Minute Diary is in a different plane – deeper, wiser, more inspiring and revealing. The prompts are so well thought-out that in just the space of a week I have made two discoveries that completely reframed important aspects of my productivity and my relationships. The 6-Minute Diary is also much more pleasant to work with -and to look at- than The Miracle Morning – much as I love it, The Miracle Morning has all the charms of an accountant’s spread sheet (and they haven’t bothered to improve the layout in years) whereas The 6-Minute Diary has been crafted and designed with an artist’s sensibility. Am I being superficial by pointing out such things? I don't think so. This is a tool you will be using every single good or bad, happy or sad day of the year, so it only helps that it is a beauty to open and look at. I know the beautiful pages make me more thoughtful and considerate when I write in them…i.e. they nudge me to think harder before I spoil their pristine surface. Is it only me? If you had to scribble a note, however short and simple, would it make any difference if you were writing on the corner of the back page of yesterday’s newspaper or on a sheet of lovingly prepared vellum? This is what I mean – you’d force yourself to think a bit deeper before you spoiled the page. And that only helps when reflection is the whole point of the exercise.
I have read hundreds of Self-Help books, and taken too many courses. I have certificates on NLP, Mindfulness and Erikssonian Hypnosis, read and written extensively on Psychoanalisis, Theory of Knowledge and CBT. And this is why I can say that the 64-page introductory section that Dominik Spenst has prepared for The 6-Minute Diary –which you could skip, but I would urge you to read attentively- is the briefest, more engagingly written and scientifically supported introduction to the topics of Positive Psychology, Habits and Self-Reflection anywhere. I was already impressed by this when a few days after I bought the Diary, Mr Spenst sent me via email a very pretty and useful pdf titled The Golden Morning Routine, which he personally sends to all customers, and which comprises five scientific arguments for the beneficial effect of a morning routine, as well as examples of the morning routines of 25 successful people, from politicians and other pop stars to Marcus Aurelius, Stephen Covey and Immanuel Kant.
The 6-Minute Diary promises to be “a priceless journey into the most exciting and emotional realms of your own memory” and to allow you to “follow the footsteps of your personal evolution”(p.15). I believe it will deliver. Having only used it for a week, I’m already looking forward to more discoveries with The 6-Minute Diary as my companion.
I'm literally studying and absorbing every single page of the diary and i think about what i read a lot...it makes such sense what the author writes. I'm at page 39 and since i have started reading the book - i been on a rollercoaster of emotions and felt tearful, out of the blue, a handful of times and i think that's the slow healing progress for me because even while tearful - i'm still thinking and observing myself almost as if looking at myself from someone else's point of view, which is exactly what the author was saying should happen.
I'm very grateful to have found this book on Amazon and I can't wait starting the morning and evening routines...I have a very strong feeling that this book will help me to emotionally recover and be at peace with myself...
I'm still struggling with loving myself, being happy and especially with Seeing a Privilege in Being Alive at times but i'm already definitely more aware of my surroundings and being grateful for all the special things and people in my life that i didn't see before reading the diary...
Thank you author for writing and printing this diary and for having it in English!
I recommend it for absolutely everyone regardless of from what walks of life one is...because 6 minutes a day is not going to do any harm or waste your time but enrich your life in very positive way...
Dominik, thanks for sharing your story. I wish you health and continued success! Thank you for creating this diary! It is so good that I got one for my sister too 😉
In addition to this, there are many insightful and interesting quotes within the book that allow for further reading (if you want to!).
Although I have not finished writing this diary, it has highlighted the importance of my morning routine and shown me how significantly it can impact the rest of the day.
Ultimately, like any other book or advice, the work must come from the student (ie the reader) but this diary does a very good job at motivating you to continue writing the diary and making positive habitual changes to your life!
I highly recommend!
Anyway, I came across the 6 minute diary and after reading the reviews, thought I would give it a go.
I am the kind of person who keeps something up for about a week before 'giving up' or forgetting about whatever I was doing. BUT, I'm happy to say that 4 months down the line I am still using my diary every single day and I look forward to it.
I find that the diary encourages you to realise what you are grateful for and it's also so good at checking up on yourself. Sometimes you don't really realise that for example, doing someone's washing up at work is a good deed, but it is. I think that it also encourages you to see the good in yourself and where you may need improvement.
I use the weekly notes page as a 'meditation checking in' page and I also love the little pocket at the back of the diary.
The only thing I think that I'd like is maybe a choice of colours on the diary, but that's really not a big deal if they only offer grey. It's still an amazing diary and I recommend it to anybody and anyone who will listen!
On the one hand, as far as a product goes it's well made. I have no issues with the basic cover which keeps the product very neutral. Plus the lack of marking on the spine means it blends in very well in the bookshelf so nothing about it draws people into picking it up and reading through it. The introduction to the book is mostly fine, there's the odd thing I've taken as being a little contradictory (saying there is 'no motivational gibberish' but being full of quotes that could be construed that way for an example). Plus a lot of the claims are backed up from psychological research which as a psychology student myself I found interesting.
However, despite the studies showing support for the methods in the book I find it very difficult to stick too. The primary issue is just how uninspiring the book becomes after the introduction. Like the other negative review have pointed out its just three questions every morning and afternoon, which are always the same. The lack of variation in questions makes me feel this is much harder than it should be because I just cannot think of enough answers to satisfy the demands of the book. For example, think of three things you are grateful for at first seems simple, but at 7 in the morning when all you've done is get out of bed and wandered into the office to do the book, feels like more of a difficult task. Especially when you have already written a few days of pointless answers already. This in my experience leads to very vague answers that make the activity feel very meaningless. The questions on how you'll make the day great in the morning, and the reflective portion in the evening, only seem to exist to show you what you already know. Either you actually do great things all day and you have a super interesting diary to reflect on. Or like me, your book is left blank as I apparently just spend all day stood in the lab at work not doing anything that feels interesting to write about, or I'm studying.
With this as I reflect on my week of keeping this diary, my opinion is if you lead an interesting life with plenty to write about and reflect upon, you probably don't need this product to help guide your journey of self-discovery. On the other hand, if like me you're looking for a product to help you start appreciating the little things and guide you to be a more reflective and healthy person, this product also might not be the item for you.
There are dozens of pages of introduction, and I wish the font were darker. The type is both small and light, so it's hard for older eyes to read the excellent content.
