Build confidence in my ability to bypass motivation, track data with consistency and remain disciplined. Lay the foundation for a detached, observant, self correcting, results driven mind.
Discover whether tracking my time each fifteen minute interval will impact my productivity and wellbeing.
‘Test drive’ a more detailed time tracking to see how well it fits into routine practice (whether or not it drives me mad, basically).
Using a table on Notion every day I’ll track events attempting to use objective third person language (any processing and interpretation work will remain elsewhere). In an attempt to reduce pressure I’ll start by doing one log per hour, the next day I’ll do two logs. Next I’ll do four for a total of three days worth of data at different logging intervals.
The tables for filling out data will be pre-formatted for convenience. I’ll attempt to do all this without the aid of alarms or timers.
The experiment will run Wed 17th, Thu 18th and Fri 19th of June.
More time awareness will lead to better time use. The task of objective tracking will consistently bring productivity priorities to the front of decision making.
