My Newest Life/Habit/Time Tracking, With Analysis

Updated my time tracking recently. Before we get started, allow me to quote "How to Live 24 Hours Per Day" -

“To “clear” even seven hours and a half from the jungle is passably difficult. For some sacrifice has to be made. One may have spent one’s time badly, but one did spend it; one did do something with it, however ill-advised that something may have been. To do something else means a change of habits.”

“And habits are the very dickens to change! Further, any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. If you imagine that you will be able to devote seven hours and a half a week to serious, continuous effort, and still live your old life, you are mistaken. I repeat that some sacrifice, and an immense deal of volition, will be necessary.”

As always, I recommend you start with a low amount and build up, as I described in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking."

I noticed this after winning a quick game of FreeCell...

And this after the computer beat me in a friendly game of Chess Titans...
