15-Minute Time Log

I made this table when I felt like I was losing my days. Hours, afternoons, and weeks were disappearing into the ether. It’s a surprisingly small hassle to use — since time is broken into such small increments and it’s of no direct use to anyone but the user, brevity trumps clarity, and just a word or few seems to do the trick. Filling it out (honestly) for a few days every now and again seems to help keep me honest and accountable to myself.

2012 in Numbers

Originally inspired by Chris Guillebeau’s Annual Review, I created and started using this worksheet in 2011 to quantify and record some of my activities, which I find more useful and realistic than attempting to keep a daily diary. You’ll see that this blank 2012 version reflects my own values — reading, exercise, writing, and socializing (which actually has to be an explicit value in order for me to pursue it, sadly enough!). It also has several sub-sheets with sample information, which might function better as models than as directly useful for others, for they expand on some of those personal points of focus from the first page, which won’t be shared by everyone. It’s all highly customizable though and freely available!
