Newest Daily Time Tracking - v6, Sept 2011

Ladies and gentlemen,

Well, hello there. I've amended my time tracking twice recently.

Here's the old version, v5 -

——————————————- 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: Planning: ——————————————- DO BEFORE GOING ONLINE: Vitamins (C, Fish oil, Calcium/D): Stretching: Situps: Brush/floss: Breathe: Borderlands (+Solo): Gratitude: Review Life Goals: Review “Current Targets”: Reach out: Help someone: ——————————————- DO SOMETIME DURING THE DAY: Exercise (walk/run/other): Listen to audio: Blog post: Email in box, start: Empty inbox completely: Organize/cleanup/etc: Look at to-do List: Do one thing on to-do list: ——————————————- TIME TRACKING:



On Another Place

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.
