Daily Tracking Template v6, my best yet

Updated my daily tracking template since v5. The basic idea is, I fill this out every day - it doesn't take that much time, and I get a heck of a lot out of it.

If you're new to the site, you might want to check out "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking" which describes the basic idea of what's going on here, and "Two Videos on How to Do Time Tracking" if you're looking to try this out yourself.

This post will mostly look at the differences between this one and my last version, so start with Evolution or those videos if you're new to this.

Okay, here's v6 -

------------------------------------------- START OF DAY ROUTINE: Time awake: Total sleep (hours/minutes): Appointments today: Other time-sensitive things: Key habit today: What assets could I build/improve/acquire today: ------------------------------------------- TOP PRIORITIES: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Gym today?: Current Top Creative: Current Top Enterprising: Explore today?: Today's target procrastination: Current book(s): Anything crucial on my to-do list?: Email in box, start of day: Time complete: ------------------------------------------- DO BEFORE GOING ONLINE: Vitamins (C, Fish oil, Calcium/D): Piracetam: Drink Water: Stretching: Brush/floss: Breathe: Borderlands (+Solo): Gratitude: Review Life Goals: Time complete: ------------------------------------------- ACCOMPLISHMENTS

I work best with the visual - pictures, diagrams, charts - rather than text and lists. When I take notes, I tend to create them as mind maps. I'm also approaching 50 and thinking about what I want from the rest of my life and so, when someone mentioned Goalscape - a visual goal setting and tracking tool - in a LinkedIn discussion, I figured I should give it a look-see.

And it looks great! It enables you to visualise your goals, how to achieve them and how far you've got, in a very concise and practical way. The introduction video on their website is very good and the in-app tips are excellent, too.

It integrates with Mindjet's MindManager mind map application (my favourite!) so you can brainstorm on a mind map and then create a goal map from it very easily. It also supports a number of other formats for reporting and presentations.

I've not spent enough time with it to use it in anger yet, so this is not a review per se. Just a heads up to anyone out there looking for something similar.
