Nine Tips for Getting Started with Life Tracking

Inspired by Sebastian’s posts about the benefits of life tracking, I decided to try it for myself. After several false starts, I’ve now been doing it for almost two months straight and have had some great results. In this post I’ll explain how my current tracking system works and I’ll share some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

How it Works

Every Sunday morning I print an eight page document that I use throughout the week to track various aspects of my life. The first page is an overview, which I will fill out at the end of the week to summarize my results. The remaining seven pages are devoted to each day of the week.

Talking About Your Dreams vs Living Them

On Cameron Chardukian

Lately I’ve been struggling to create anything. In June I posted nearly everyday and laughed at people who used writer’s block as an excuse. Now it feels like I’m a slave to writer’s block. I can’t think of original things to tweet, let alone write entire blog posts about. What happened? I allowed myself to get too comfortable.

I’ve fallen into a stale daily routine where I fail to challenge myself. Sure, I’ve stretched myself socially more than ever before, going out 4-5 nights per week, but that’s refreshing. Those 20 hours of play each week should allow me to get MORE done. But they haven’t.

All I’ve accomplished over the last few days is putting in my daily two hours of juggling practice, and writing ONE blog post. That’s it. I haven’t gone out, I haven’t made any new videos, I haven’t even tried anything new. ALL I’ve done over the last two days is sit curled up on the couch reading.

That ends here. I’ve seen too many people fail to reach their potential because they were satisfied with just tasting success. I refuse to be one of them. Even my least productive days may be ahead of most people my age, but I refuse to accept that as an excuse.

Average is meaningless to me. I’m trying to become the greatest motivator this world has ever seen. I’m trying to create a legacy. Talk is cheap though. Until I learn to become comfortable with being uncomfortable that’s merely a pipe dream. A fantasy.
