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

Time Tracking v7

After a year and a half of huge gains from time tracking, I got away from the habit. The last time I tracked my time was 19th November 2011 - almost exactly 3 months ago.

Around that time, I started working 17 to 20 hours per day. I know people often exaggerate their hours, but I'm not doing so - I was working basically every minute of the day, and sleeping on the couch in my office.

With that sort of frenzied high-purpose action, and with a fluid set of actions of hiring/managing at the same time, I got away from tracking. The action dictated itself; there was no need to try to control or refine it.

Now, two of my big campaigns have stabilized and will largely run themselves, though they'll need constant balancing and looking-after. Also I note that I've been spending relatively too much time on firefighting, and not enough following up with people on my side.

So, I'm back on tracking. I added some elements to the new sheet
