January’s tracking project: Day 7-9

Recordign just about everything that you do in a day means a lot of data. All’s well and god and some things come to light, like how much time one spends staring at oneself in front of the mirror making favorable comparisons to vintage Mick Jagger (answer: not enough). But what to do with all of the data? What to do what to do?

The first step, and admittedly the most challenging, is how to appropriately organize it. For this I enlisted Daytum, a tracking site that is highly customizable and allows you to create any number of categories. Its not fool proof, but instead of providing the list of the past few days, I will be showing you charts culled from the data since Saturday. Let me know if you like it better/worse if you see any insights or not (as I have my doubts as to whether it is useful).
