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.

Blurring The Days

On Huan M. Nguyen

Is it Monday? No, it's Wednesday. It seems like I just went to bed Sunday night. Open up Twitter, refresh... Haha that's funny... Okay, open up Facebook here, let's see what's going on. Just like every other day...

I've gotten up way earlier than I normally do the past two days, in time to see watch the light of the rising sun reflect red off the mountains. As I write here, it's already bright enough that the mountains have regained their usual brown and green, and the treetops outside my window are their vibrant yellows and greens, made more so by the angle of the sun.

Being able to watch the sun rise and the world lighten just clicked something in my head.
