The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking

"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

I built a pretty good daily tracking template, and I evolved it over time. It's serving me pretty well now. I'd like to show you the evolution.

Version 0 - I realized that tracking my time would be a good thing. I started writing down just one or two things per day.

Here's what my first day of tracking looked like:

26 May - Success

Monthly Financial Review - July 2013

On The Blog of Damon

In the spirit of Austin K Wood and The Simple Dollar, every month I'm going to start posting a personal financial review.

The idea of these posts is that they will help me track my own progress. I could do this private but opening this up to a public audience will drive me to succeed. I also want to be honest about what is and what is not working. I'll break things down by my assets and debts to calculate my net worth. Using these numbers I'll set goals for the upcoming month.I'm sure these reviews will evolve as I get into them however here is the start.

July Monthly Financial Review

July - Assets +4.53%, Debts 0%

In July and August my single biggest goal is to build up a cash buffer for when I head to Argentina at the end of August. I did pretty well on this goal increasing my cash by 26% and that's even after buying my flight to Argentina which set me back $1300.
