Most people have heard that journaling is beneficial but few know what to journal about, or what tangible difference it's going to make.
In other words, there's a GAP.
That's why New York Times bestselling author and journaling advocate Anna David created the "G.A.P. Method"—a unique system for journaling about Goals, Actions and Progress in a way that shows how to pursue dreams while letting go of the results.
Studies show that writing down our goals makes us 42% more likely to meet them. With the "G.A.P. " journaling method, attendees will not only able to identify what they want and take steps to get it but also find greater patience, satisfaction and productivity.
David—who has spoken about journaling on Good Morning America and written about it in Psychology Today and Entrepreneur magazine—has seen the transformative impact the "G.A.P. Method" has had on the people she coached. This motivated her to bring "Journaling Your Way to Success" to corporations, events and colleges worldwide.
Using wit, live journaling exercises and unique stories—about topics as varied as meeting a goal 27 years after setting it and learning about manifestation from a pre-fame Matt Damon—David provides audiences with specific journaling exercises and actionable steps. Even better: every participant leaves with a G.A.P. journal that already has their initial goals and actions mapped out.
Anna David is the New York Times bestselling author of two novels and six non-fiction books.
She’s been published in the New York Times, Time, LA Times, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Vice, Cosmo, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and Salon, among many others, written about in Forbes, Martha Stewart Living, Entrepreneur, Allure and Women’s Health and has appeared repeatedly on Today, The Talk, Good Morning America and numerous other programs.
She’s been a featured speaker at three different TedX events and her company, Legacy Launch Pad, writes and publishes books for thought leaders. Legacy Launch Pad recently re-launched David’s first book, Party Girl, which is being developed into a movie by an Oscar winning producing team.

"In 15 years of booking speakers, I've never seen someone so well-prepared." - Cathy Christen, Director of GoBundance Women's Division
"Anna’s timing, poise, clarity, confidence and terrific sense of humor made it the best talk I have helped on. I was expecting it to be good, even great, if all the stars aligned. I was not expecting it would be amazing. She needs to use big stages to deliver her message.”
—Leading motivational speaker and coach Joel Weldon
“Anna knocked it out of the park. She was entertaining and honest and the audience loved her vulnerability. The evaluations came back raving about her! I look forward to having her on my stage again.”—Meredith Swedo, event producer and host of Wellness for People in Recovery Live Event
“Anna’s candor in sharing her story challenged students to critically reflect on the choices they make in their lives. Students were riveted.”
–Anthony Nicotera, Adjunct Professor, NYU Silver School of Social Work
“Anna captured the attention of our students with her honest, insightful, and thought provoking recount of her personal struggles. Thankfully this wasn’t your typical lecture, and because of this, students were engaged from beginning to end.”
