With the new year comes a flurry of new years resolutions from everyone – myself included. I am giving iDoneThis a try at the recommendation of two friends. Its a simple a lightweight way to track what happened each day, and build momentum for the next entry.
Their system emails you when you want (mine come at 11pm) and you simply reply back with whatever you want for that day. I am using this as a personal “snippets” of sorts to see if I get value. I am trying to stay on top of it, and I am proud to say I have so far been great at it (yup, almost all 10 days of the new year). Anything that integrates into an already existing behavior is much easier than many of the personal tracking/diary type apps I looked into. iDoneThis uses email, which I live in daily.
Outside of work recaps or snippets of the week there is a lot going on and it was recommended to me that getting everything written down/journaled would be a decent attempt at tracking everything. We will see how it goes.
I am already using foursquare for where I go, and this should be a nice example to fill in the blanks on what goes on.
What are some other great personal tracking / quantified self tools are out there?
