I saw your video a few weeks ago and I loved the idea. I managed to create the journal and I love how much more focussed I am in a day. 
Pet peeve is the extra line added to Evernote.

I wanted to add two more sections. One is meetings/events for the day. I can get it from query add-on in IFTTT ListEventsforSpecificDate  from Google calendar but it show only one records though I can  see that the applet retrieved 3 records . Do you know how I can do that?

Secondly I want to add an automatic retrieve of word of the day from Dictionary.com
