The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking

"A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system." -John Gall

I built a pretty good daily tracking template, and I evolved it over time. It's serving me pretty well now. I'd like to show you the evolution.

A Technological Solution For People Wanting to Read More

Hey Sebastian,

I'm a big fan of your blog, a lot of the techniques you talk about have really helped me improve my productivity over the last month or so. One of your posts that most struck me was the one in which you talked about how to read more. It got me thinking about how I could more easily reorganize my time to make it easier to read. I realized that I spend a lot of time reading every day, just not a lot of time reading books. So to remedy this I threw together a little app which I thought you, and your other readers, might be interested in. The basic premise of the app, which is called onesmallpage, is that it will send you up to 5 pages of a book to your email every day. This helps you use your email reading time to read more books. Anyway I know your inbox must be stuffed, but I thought I would share since the app is partly inspired by your blog post.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,


I think this looks way cool. If anyone tries it out, let me know how well it works?
