Daily Time/Habit/Life Tracking, v5

Hello there - long term readers of the site already know that I fill out a sheet of "time tracking" every day, writing down how I spend my time, what I eat, what I spend, and as I do my habits and daily appointments and things.

It does a lot of good things. It helps me stay on top of the lots of things I'm doing, and it helps me get data to improve things with.

My newest version has some incremental changes on it, but it's not a guide to getting started for yourself. If you want to get started for yourself, here's some posts to do that:

Short term goals and Daily routine

On Work in Progress

For a long time I was worried that I din't have any long term goals, even if I had them they were too vague to take any specific action. So I stopped worrying about having those 40 year, 50 year goals and concentrated on short term goals. I have a list of very specific short term goals. I believe we have better chance of achieving short term goals since we can see immediate results.

Also, we can use these short term goals as mile stones for mid term and long term goals. For e.g. loosing 4 inch of waistline in 2 months is a short term goal, it can be a a mile stone in the midterm goal of getting a six pack after 12 months.

I feel that our short term goals and our daily routine should be in Sync. That will ensure maximum progress.
