The Logbook is one-stop for daily and weekly time planning that works best for people with an erratic workflow, who want to leave enough room for spontaneity and imagination. Unlearn the habit of overplanning by switching from endless to-do lists to the list of time-estimated desired outcomes.
This method requires you to build a habit of tracking your actual time-spent by hand. If done properly, the Logbook is a chronological record of your work and a log of personal activities. By the end of the week, you have a private record of progress, actual vs. plan. Tracking time-spent, habits, performance, etc., in one place is less time-consuming and enables you to see the patterns and dependencies over time.
A week at a glance view enhanced by color-coding helps you to monitor and control where you invest your time and diligently review your performance. Do reviews easier and faster with consolidated data for proper analysis.
Capture thoughts, notes, and tasks by macro-categories: create - connect - learn.
