THE THEME SYSTEM
from CGP Grey and Myke Hurley
Helping you live a more productive, effective life
What is The Theme System?
It comprises of three sections.
The Theme System ensures you stay on track with your Yearly Theme by providing a simple framework for daily journaling.
It is designed to be adaptable to meet your individual needs and goals.
What is a 'Yearly Theme'?
Instead of setting resolutions at the start of the year, you set an overall idea of how you would like to approach each year or season. This then becomes a guide for your personal and/or professional life throughout that period.
Ideally, you would also think of what the ideal outcome is for a set period of time and some key actions you would like to complete. This helps you maintain focus throughout the year when considering new projects.
Setting the foundation for the rest of The Theme System.
Once you’ve decided on your Yearly Theme, you need a place to write it down.
Yearly Theme Examples
Journal Pages make up the majority of The Theme System.
This is where you'll spend most of your time.
Like the Journal Pages, Daily Themes create a structure for you to keep track of your goals, habits, or to-do lists.
