My productivity the past few days has been better than it has been in a long time. As long as I keep the chart where I can see it when I work, I stay focused on what I’m doing. If I leave it somewhere else, I’m more likely to waste my time wandering around other cool websites. The Task Progress Tracker gets me motivated to get started on projects. Once I get started I begin to gain momentum and lose track of how long it has been. Sometime next week I’ll be releasing the current project I’m working on earlier than I had estimated and it’s all because I’ve added this new way of working to my daily routine.
Dave made an great comment yesterday, he said, “It’ll be interesting to see if you even need the form after two weeks!” The truth is, it would be great to be able to work as effectively as I have been lately without the form but work has actually been funner using it. Even if I don’t need it, I will probably still use it to help me record my time and see how much I’ve already finished instead of what I still need to do.
I was going to write a post every day for the first week while I used the Task Progress Tracker, but I don’t know how many differnt ways I can think of to say INCREDIBLE! Thanks again Dave!
Great work. Thanks for the updates of your progress. Your elaborations are very informative. I need to read up on this system and give it a try myself.
As a matter of fact, I will do that right NOW.
