make it worth your while

when is something worth doing? and how often do you do things that are worth your while? how often do you squander away your day? this is something david seah, a freelance IT professional, asked himself, and he came up with this great system.david-seah-tracker.jpg

there’s really little i can add, other than kudos to david.

you can go here and create your own tracking sheet.

this here is david’s tracking sheet.

i greatly appreciate how david freely shares his work. as touched upon in an earlier posting, everyone gains when, as david says, we let a thousand ideas bloom.

    I love this idea. We get (or got) so little life-skills training in our elementary and secondary school systems. I was 35 before I realized I had no idea how to set goals for myself – and that this made it hard for me to organize achievement. The very notion of having a five-year plan was anathema to me.

    I think this system has so many benefits. Not only will it help you set goals and track them, it may induce some introspection regarding values. And there’s everything right about knowing oneself.

    i just did this exercise for myself. the unexpected benefit was to craft the little statements beside the numbers. they very clearly answer the question, “WHY am i doing this?”

    I love David Seah’s Printable CEO series. Did a Google search for how others were using the weekly progress chart, and somehow I was not at all surprised to find moritherapy on the first page of links. 🙂

    your words as well as the google ranking are a great compliment!

    to be honest, i don’t use it a lot; right now i use a very pared-down version of SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely) but once in a while i review his ideas and it’s productive every time i use it.

    do you use it? how?

    I like the SMART acronym, I’ll have to keep that in mind. I mainly use Remember the Milk for task management, David Allen’s Getting Things Done zen philosophy to approach tasks, and David Seah’s sheets to sometimes visualize my projects v. available time over a day or week.
