Detailed Analysis of My Current Time/Habit/Life Tracking

One of the things I've gotten tremendous amounts of mileage out of it is tracking my time, habits, and life each day.

To put it simply - I now realize it's impossible to understand how your life is going without some careful observation. There's a lot of time each day, and knowing where that time goes, what you ate, what you did and didn't do... it's almost impossible to get a good picture of your life without some kind of measuring.

I'm going to you my newest tracking template, and then I'll give some analysis. Before I start though, I'd like to share a quote -

“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

Thus, if you want to track your time, please do not attempt to track 20 things at once, because it's unlikely to work. I started very simply, as I described in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking" - I'd recommend you read that post if you want to do something like this.

21 Day Challenge #1: Overcoming Negativity

On Huan M. Nguyen

I've noticed recently that negative thoughts have been a major part of my personality. I'd go so far to say that I've been a pretty negative person.

On the outside, it doesn't appear to me to be as bad as it seems when I'm observing my internal monologue.

It's been very easy for me to lock myself into negative thought patterns lately, and to let single, intrusive negative thoughts start to warp my perception of reality and turn my vibe in the wrong direction.

So, inspired by Tynan's post from years and years ago, How To Be Happy. Always., this challenge will be about overcoming those thoughts and replacing them with positive, constructive ones.

Unlike the very first challenge, Operation Time Rescue, there could be a much more blurred line between success and failure.
