Impact Journal

Our podcast co-host, Augusto Pinaud, has been coaching clients on productivity for many years, and devised a tool that he uses with them to help overcome managing the high-level goals in conjunction with lower-level projects and maintenance/administrative activities of daily and work life. In this week’s episode, Augusto goes into detail on what his tool, Impact Journal, is and how to use it in your personal productivity system.

Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:26Welcome, gentlemen, and welcome to our listeners to this episode. We have a treat for you today where we're going to be focusing on the impact journal. And if you don't know what the impact journal is, then you're in the right place. So Augusta Pinaud has created the impact journal, which is a method for being able to a method and kind of a document for being able to help you facilitate focusing on your goals. And so with that, I'm going to actually turn the microphone over to Cousteau so he can kick us off and explain A little bit about what the impact journal is. And then we'll get into the conversation.

Augusto Pinaud 1:04They impact journal is one of the tools that are part of the Connect invisible dots framework, you know, and I created this tool, really in reality to us our response of what I was hearing from my coaching clients and the concept of impact. When I show this product or when I do presentations, I always begin there was a definition of what impact is because that's really what this journal is about. And impact is nothing else than the effect of influence of one person thing or action on another. What I notice on my own system, as well as the system of my client, coaching clients and people even highly productive people that I know it is that is really hard for people to keep focus on the direction of the impact they want to realize. So the impact journal is nothing else than a tool to keep people engage with where do they want to go?

Raymond Sidney-Smith 2:06I'm interested on behalf of the listeners for you to kind of flesh out for us. What was kind of the, you know, as you were working with clients, and trying to devise the impact journal itself, if you could explain a little bit about what it what it does, in terms of the the, the reading part itself kind of explains the backstory, but if you could summarize a little bit of the backstory,
