Partner's Journal

"For a long time it was all right for a woman to keep a diary, but it sounded too fruity for men.  So they changed it to journal.   Now sensitive men can set down their thoughts without appearing too sensitive."        George Carlin

There are two forms for your journal, one for to capture your thoughts, commitments and learning’s from the meetings with your mentor, the other for your lessons learned from actions you take. Add to these and make them your own. Print these two forms and use them as a guideline for your journal entries.
