The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking

"A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system." -John Gall

I built a pretty good daily tracking template, and I evolved it over time. It's serving me pretty well now. I'd like to show you the evolution.

Version 0 - I realized that tracking my time would be a good thing. I started writing down just one or two things per day.

On Winning in Baseball and Life

A quick question. how do you make yourself do something productive instead of wasting time? I know I've tried various things, like an alarm clock or making it easy to do productive things, making sure i know what to do, and so on. Is the only choice to just try increasing the odds as much as possible for the future and hope that when the time comes it will work? Is there no way to get to 100 or even 90% success?

I know its not realistic to shoot for that, its better to do the best you can with what you have and work from there, but I'm wondering if that end goal can be reached.

Good question. Let me ask you a counter-question:

How do you win at baseball?

The most simple answer is obvious - "Score more runs than your opponent."
