For centuries, many of the most effective people have used journals to document their daily thoughts and happenings: from Marcus Aurelius, Albert Einstein, and Marie Curie, to Oprah Winfrey, Tim Ferriss, and Steven Covey. Their journals have helped them become more thoughtful, aware, creative, and successful.
Minute is a new take on the age-old journal, intentionally designed for the modern individual who is highly-connected online, needs a private space for introspection, and demands that their daily tools be beautiful & delightful.
"Keeping a personal journal empowers you to see and improve, on a day-by-day basis, the way you're developing and using your endowments."
—Steven Covey, in "First Things First"
"For years I've been advocating the power and pleasure of being grateful. I kept a gratitude journal for a full decade without fail—and urged you all to do the same."
Crafted with a simple aesthetic, Minute gets out of your way so that you can focus on what matters — your words and thoughts.
Minute is optimized for both desktop and mobile web so you can compose and revisit your notes from any device.
What is life but the people in it? We get it, and have designed Minute with your friends in mind.
Save your friends as contacts and tag them within relevant notes. The next time you get a coffee with that long lost friend, just visit their profile page and you'll have an instant reminder from last time.
We've integrated with Google calendar to put your daily events front and center on the home page. Its the perfect starting place to jot down notes for each event and connect them with event attendees.
Each day, you'll get a flash back with past notes and images. Use them to reminisce about good times, re-evaluate past decisions, and remember old friends that you should reach out to.
Its like spaced repetition, but for the most important thoughts, events, and people in your life.
"Keeping a journal of what’s going on in your life is a good way to help you distill what’s important and what’s not."
—Martina Navratilova, professional athlete
"In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could to any person; I create myself."
—Susan Sontag, author
