Daily Time/Habit/Life Tracking, v5

Hello there - long term readers of the site already know that I fill out a sheet of "time tracking" every day, writing down how I spend my time, what I eat, what I spend, and as I do my habits and daily appointments and things.

It does a lot of good things. It helps me stay on top of the lots of things I'm doing, and it helps me get data to improve things with.

My newest version has some incremental changes on it, but it's not a guide to getting started for yourself. If you want to get started for yourself, here's some posts to do that:

1,000 hours of zazen - day 1

On One Thousand Hours of Zazen

My goal is to sit 1000 hours of meditation in 1 year. Accounting for holidays and days when my schedule won't permit, I'm working to a schedule of 3 hours per day. The 3 hours per day will be broken down into 7 sessions of 25 minutes each - 4 sessions in the morning before work, and 3 sessions in the evening. It's an ambitious target, and may require some adjustments (e.g. fewer sessions during work-days and making up for it at the weekend). This blog will be my way of tracking progress in terms of hours logged and noting thoughts and observations about zazen itself.  My belief is that meditation is one of the most important and useful things one can do for oneself. I'll expand on that idea later. 

This morning I woke up at 7am and did 2 sessions of 25 minutes. It's a good start, and I'll make up the extra 2 sessions at lunch time today.
