You only did something if you have recorded it.

Time

I started to track my time using a daily planner. However, writing down on each 15-minute block was not as accurate as I wanted to follow my time. Also, it isn’t easy to quantify the data if recorded on paper.

Money

  • Have you budgeted your spending on dollar amounts for this month?
  • Do you know how much you spent last month?
  • What is your total net worth right now?

Books & Movies

I record all the books I read and movies I watched on an excel spreadsheet. Documenting what you read is essential for any readers and content consumers to record everything you read or watch. At the end of the fiscal year, you can compare how much you read to the previous years. When recording, I include the title, author, date you finished reading/watching, category, and a brief comment about the book you read. My annual report consists of the number of books in each category and the total books read.
