Daily Tracking Template v6, my best yet

Updated my daily tracking template since v5. The basic idea is, I fill this out every day - it doesn't take that much time, and I get a heck of a lot out of it.

If you're new to the site, you might want to check out "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking" which describes the basic idea of what's going on here, and "Two Videos on How to Do Time Tracking" if you're looking to try this out yourself.

This post will mostly look at the differences between this one and my last version, so start with Evolution or those videos if you're new to this.

Okay, here's v6 -

------------------------------------------- START OF DAY ROUTINE: Time awake: Total sleep (hours/minutes): Appointments today: Other time-sensitive things: Key habit today: What assets could I build/improve/acquire today: ------------------------------------------- TOP PRIORITIES: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Gym today?: Current Top Creative: Current Top Enterprising: Explore today?: Today's target procrastination: Current book(s): Anything crucial on my to-do list?: Email in box, start of day: Time complete: ------------------------------------------- DO BEFORE GOING ONLINE: Vitamins (C, Fish oil, Calcium/D): Piracetam: Drink Water: Stretching: Brush/floss: Breathe: Borderlands (+Solo): Gratitude: Review Life Goals: Time complete: ------------------------------------------- ACCOMPLISHMENTS

How to salvage a low energy day

On Joshua Thomas

I've been feeling extra lethargic today and really don't want to be, so I decided to Google around for examples of how other people salvage days like this. It turns out that there are a lot of posts written about how to salvage "bad" days, ones in which you have a good reason to feel awful, but there aren't many blurbs about how to salvage low energy day.

What's interesting is that I'm pretty sure if I followed any of the advice given for salvaging a bad day, I'd end up in a worse predicament. Most of the suggestions had the goal of improving happiness, rather than getting back into the game.

"Eat some icecream", "Complain to a friend", "Watch television".

I know that if I did any of these I'd end up just feeling worse. I try to avoid things like this as much as possible. It's all self-destructive stuff at best. I do indulge sometimes, but it's to savor an experience, not to just get my brain's happy-chemical levels up.

So here's some things to hit up to salvage a low-energy day:
