For over 250 days (and counting), I've tracked how I've spent every minute of my time into different categories such as Socialising, Exercise, Work, Website, etc.
Why do I do this? To better understand where my time is going. It's similar to how people keep track of their money through expenses and budgets. So I'm just tracking time. Also it's suuuper fun to track and look at.
This is the pie chart of my life.
2017 Monthly Reviews
I started reviewing my time-keeping data in 2017 to actually utilise it in some way, see trends and set goals. They're still very new so I'm continuously changing and adapting them. If you ever have any suggestions, criticisms or questions, please feel free to tell them to me on email@example.com.
September was honestly quite intense. New role at work, and… yeap honestly that’s mostly it. Almost the majority of my time was focused on work, even my sleep during which I had dreams ABOUT work. But such is starting a new role, I always take a little time to settle into new things.
Big, biiiiigggg month, with the Tesla Model 3 launching in our showroom. Besides now doing 4 times as much work as before, it was a very full month and I actually hit my goals in every single category, so I’m really happy about that. :)
July was a hectic month with 3 exploration trips in the space of 4 weeks! A little too hectic for me because my head physically started to hurt towards the end of the month. Nevertheless a pretty exciting month with the snow, starting an analytics project at work and reading 2 amazing books.
June 2019 - So much fun!!! Submitted our Partner Visa, learnt Tableau, met some international female parkour athletes and stretched almost every single day.
May was such a chill and fun month! It was a month of settling in - settling in to our new place and area, settling back into my parkour gym, and settling into a new team at work.
A big month in April 2019 ticking off my first 2019 goal! I don’t think I’ve ever been this productive in a month before, a sincerely shocking amount done.
My 2019 goals - keeping it short and simple with 5 sweet goals.
December 2018 - one of my favourite months in the year! Going firefly hunting, celebrating my birthday in Adelaide, finishing The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and enjoying the holiday season with good friends and fam.
November 2018 - a good month just with little, awesome moments.
Monthly review of October 2018, trialling a new format based around story-telling with data. Pretty good month - getting closer to backflips!
If you'd like to see some behind the scenes and FAQ about the project, check out my intro post below!
I catalogue every minute of my time into different categories (e.g. Socialising, Exercise, Work, etc). It's become part-experiment, part-hobby for me, and is a visual and deep look into my time.
