On older episodes of Cortex, the hosts discussed how goals/systems are much better with metrics. And I agree! So I’d like to record and publish charts of what I’m working on, and how I’m spending my time.
If I use the log output from my nowify program, I can easily display my days in a visually-pleasing way:
tasks completed by time-of-day
tasks completed by day-of-week
skips, pauses, refreshes, and quits
week and month views
I’d also potentially like to chart the number of lines in my many personal lists, so that I have reference points for how they’re growing over time.
I’ve also set myself up with better financial planning tools, which I highly recommend.
