When successful people are asked the secret to their success, many comment on the importance of records. “Records” here refers to diaries, schedules, and memos. They commonly say that planning and recording ideas are the driving forces behind success. As such, records have great power. There are two main methods for recording. The first is handwritten recording, and the other is digital recording.

Handwritten Recording

A typical example of a handwritten record is a diary. Because there are many different types of diary, they can be written in various ways depending on the user. Plans can be made and recorded on a monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly basis. Nowadays, an increasing number of people are decorating their diaries. Decorating a diary can make it unique and express one’s individuality. Recording daily routines can be boring or feel like homework, but you can enjoy daily records as a hobby if you decorate your diary. People who are new to or have difficulty decorating their diaries can learn how through media such as YouTube and Instagram. There are many videos and photos uploaded for beginners on decorating a diary. There is no correct answer because diary decorating is just a fun hobby for users. That is why you can decorate as much as you want and however you want. If you fill in the diary step by step, you will see that it becomes quite thick. After a while, you will feel great happiness when reading the diary.

Digital Recording

As digital devices develop, the way in which people record their daily lives is also changing. It is now possible to record your daily life digitally, using tablet PCs, cell phones, and laptops. The advantages of digital records vary. First, you can store records for one year, two years, or more. Handwritten records are limited by the amount of paper available. However, digital records can store as much data as the digital device’s capacity allows. The second advantage is that various font types can be applied. Handwritten records have to be written manually, making it difficult to change the font of your handwriting. However, digital records can store and use various fonts. The third advantage is that pictures, videos, etc., can be attached. In handwritten records, photos can only be attached through prints, and videos and recordings cannot be attached. However, records using digital devices can be made in many ways. Owing to these advantages, many people record their daily lives using digital devices. Many calendar and diary applications have been released for these people, and Portable Document Format (PDF) diaries for tablet PC users have been sold and shared.

It is important to record yourself in some way. Mo Gawdat, the former chief business officer of Google X, emphasizes that records are the beginning of happiness. When he is unhappy, Mr. Gawdat writes “happy lists” that record all the moments he felt happy, and it is only then that he can feel happy. If you record your precious and important moments like this, you will be able to achieve what you want. What do you think about starting a record of your life for the new semester?
