Army doctrine teaches us that journaling is a tool to help expand ones knowledge (self-awareness). Doctrine emphasizes that leaders read about, write about, and practice their profession. As a senior Army leader, you are constantly preparing yourself through lifelong learning and broadening experiences. Self-awareness enables leaders to recognize their strengths and weaknesses across a range of conditions and progressively employ strengths to correct weaknesses. Competent and confident leaders make sense of their experience and use it to learn more about themselves. Journals and after-action reviews (AARs) are valuable tools in gaining an understanding of ones experiences and reactions to changes in conditions. When an individual journals they are developing their critical thinking skills. Critical thinking provides a basis for reflection and continual learning. This type of thinking is purposeful and helps find facts, challenge assumptions, solve problems, and make decisions. Critical and innovative thought are abilities that enable adaptability.
