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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monthly review of October 2018, trialling a new format based around story-telling with data. Pretty good month - getting closer to backflips!
Monthly review for September 2018. This month, I put my hand up for a bigger role at work and was also working out my relationship with J, so they took priority in September.

A short and sweet review of my life in July 2018.
June was LOCO.
This is my May 2018 Monthly Review, a really busy month filled with work, parkour and cold showers. My Monthly Reviews are based off my 2018 Goals and filled with all the graphs from my Time Keeping Project.
This is my April 2018 Monthly Review, with new format, photos and parkour gifs (!). It was a generally intense month, moving into full-time work at Tesla. My Monthly Reviews are based off my 2018 Goals and filled with all the graphs from my Time Keeping Project.
This is my March 2018 Monthly Review, and my first review for 2018. I fell off the wagon for the first 3 months, but monthly reviews still remain very important to me. My Monthly Reviews are based off my 2018 Goals and filled with all the graphs from my Time Keeping Project.
For the last three years, I've written down my "One Year Goals" on a piece of paper, which I keep on my table so that I can see it everyday. This year, 2018, is the year where I learn how to breathe.
This is my first ever annual review, looking at 2017 in its entirety. In 2017, I travelled through Patagonia, returned to Sydney, worked on my parkour and website, started writing monthly reviews and began work at Tesla.
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.
