A Prompt

What is something that came to an end this month? (Perhaps you’re happy to see it go…)

We make workbooks, ask questions, share prompts, and create tools to inspire different ways of thinking.

What's the point?

Observing inner life in this format can be useful for both addressing the specific (ie: starting a new project or addressing an emotional block) or more generally distilling the magnitude of ongoingness into tangible examples.

Perhaps the prompts can just be a “better” way to waste time than idle scrolling...


Journaling can synthesize our idea of who we appear to be and who we actually are, serving as a hinge between our abstract ideas of personhood versus the tangible details of our days.

In other words, the things you pay attention to are what you become.

“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don't bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.”

— R. Buckminster Fuller

Digital Workbook 01

  • Format

Six months of journaling prompts, list-making activities, and exercises that invite you to think differently about the present.

A journal for a non-journaler; the most low-stakes, high-reward ritual we can imagine for stepping into personal growth, sparking creative breakthroughs, or prompting deep conversations.

  • The download includes plenty of space to record your responses and take notes.
  • Every (undated) month is broken up into four sections — one activity per week. Weeks 1-3 of each month are short list-making ideas. Week 4 is a longer list of prompts meant for reflecting on the last month as a whole.

The Moon Wheel

A limited edition, analog tool for self reflection. Inspired by finding unexpected inspiration in everyday objects, the wheel is a simple DIY distillation of themes and ideas for reflecting.

To use:

  • Choose a word on the outer edge of the wheel to inspire you, then slide the outer circle to reveal a brief explanation in the hidden window.
  • Pair it with a blank journal, put it on the coffee table, pin it on the wall — use it alone or with a partner or friend.

“Artists, poets, whatever you want to call those people whose job is “making” take in the commonplace and are forever recognizing it as worthwhile.

I think I am always collecting in a way, walking down a street with my eyes open, looking through a magazine, viewing a movie, visiting a museum or grocery store.

Some of the things I collect are tangible and mount into piles of many layers and when the time comes to use those saved images I dig like an archaeologist and sometimes find what I want and sometimes don’t.”

Example Prompts:


What happened that doesn't have an explanation?


What were you proud of?


Any themes?


What was felt more deeply because it took you back to your past?


James Salter wrote: “Life is weather, life is meals.”

Describe a meaningful moment involving each in the last month.


What are you amid that is almost (but not quite) right? A draft, a relationship, an injury...what needs refinement and attention?


Think about seeing the Earth from the moon. If you can see a thing more as a whole you can better understand it or see that it’s beautiful, or necessary, or stupid. But when you’re too close to the dirt you lose the landscape. The moon is a metaphor for vantage. It’s a reminder that we are guided by months and seasons, a system of order and natural rhythm that exists outside of ourselves. A sort of compass for reflection.

WHY ListS?

A list can be a device for giving deep thinking concise guardrails. Lists require us to think with specificity and to articulate. They distill the wantings, the nuance, and the singularities inside life’s relentless routines. These lists are highly subjective, and that’s the point!
