Things Go Wrong. I Recommend You Plan For It.

Hey Sebastian

I hope your travels are going well. My time tracking has been going great. I added a whole ton of stuff as well as a journal. I'm trying really hard to track my energy levels and figure out how to increase that since it is pretty much the deciding factor in how much I can get done. The whole process has really been helping me out. Just the fact that I know I am writing each block of time down makes me want to use it in a way I would be proud of.

I could use a bit of advice though. The whole system seems to break down whenever, i am busy especially if it involves running around of place to place. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Great questions here. Well first, congrats on getting onto time tracking, it's one of those things that's potentially life changing. I've gotten huge mileage out of it.

But yes, this is something I've realized lately - probably the #1 way people get off-track in their habits is by having some sort of hard time happen. Stress, illness, being overwhelmingly busy, something like that.

Haha... two secret posts in a row. I have a mental list of stories I want to write here, and somehow this one had slipped off of it. Luckily, a UT Grad who goes by "The Reel Deal" posted a comment reminding me about the story. So here it goes, with a little history first.

I never thought I'd go to UT (The University of Texas, not Tennessee). Ever since I was in middle school, I always knew that I'd go to MIT - it was where the smart geeky people went, and I was one of them. When it came time to do applications for schools, I mailed two of them. One for MIT and one for WPI, a lesser known technical school in Massachusetts. I had abysmal grades, due in a large part to my refusal to do most homework and having never actually studied for a test. I always thought it was interesting to see how much of the material I'd naturally retained. Let's just say it usually wasn't over 80%.
