Updated my time tracking recently. Before we get started, allow me to quote "How to Live 24 Hours Per Day" -
“To “clear” even seven hours and a half from the jungle is passably difficult. For some sacrifice has to be made. One may have spent one’s time badly, but one did spend it; one did do something with it, however ill-advised that something may have been. To do something else means a change of habits.”
“And habits are the very dickens to change! Further, any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. If you imagine that you will be able to devote seven hours and a half a week to serious, continuous effort, and still live your old life, you are mistaken. I repeat that some sacrifice, and an immense deal of volition, will be necessary.”
As always, I recommend you start with a low amount and build up, as I described in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking."
Okay, here's my new daily tracking -
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:
