Day 60, Tracking Activities

Our maid is here, cleaning the kitchen.  While she was taking out the trash, I sneaked into the kitchen for a snack.
 
Yesterday, I had a consultation with my psychiatrist.  I told him that I was still doing well.  Again, there is no need for me to take Latuda or Vraylar.  I am very grateful for that.
 
I visited my friend Jacque at her retirement complex.  Under all the health regulations, the place was not the same.  The dining hall had about one-fourth as many people with only a few tables spread far apart.  My thirst was wretchedly uncomfortable; I could not get enough water.
 
Today, in my own home, things are a bit better.  I mentioned my thirst to my psychiatrist, but he did not have any solutions for it.
 
I think I need to carry a water bottle with me wherever I go–a large one.  Let me see if I can get myself back into that habit.  I finished Tom Ziglar’s Choose to Win.  
 

Next Day

 

Reminders

 
Here are my reminders for today.
 
 

Career

 
Yesterday, I entered career-specific advice from Tom Ziglar’s Choose to Win into JV Life Tracker.  It took a while longer to score my app, but I believe daily exposure to the suggestions will help my business.  Most notably, is the equation: attitude X effort X skill = performance.  If your attitude sucks and is negative, it makes your performance negative, even if you have outstanding effort and skill.
 

Diet Diary

 
Today’s diet diary has a few activities on it.  My goal was to plan my day in 90-minute blocks.  I think I will get a separate program for activities.  However, today’s planning was a terrific exercise.  I did not intend to order sunflower seeds; the shopper substituted them for pumpkin seeds.  They are tasty.  However, they are a bit high in omega-6 fatty acids.  I got all of my vitamins, even without a green drink.  The avocado, sauerkraut, and green pepper helped out.
 
 

Evening

 

Prayer

 
 
EVENING PRAYER
 
Lord,
 
Motivation
Today, I tried some new things.  I checked three books out of the library.  One is about what motivates us.
 
Time Log
Lord, I am thinking of keeping a time log of my activities in a second copy of Cronometer I call Vibractivity.
 
Time Blocks
I can plan and track 90-minute blocks with timed notes.  Using food records for activities, I can map grams to minutes.
 
Projects and Categories
The other fields in the activity (food) records can be assigned to one or more projects or categories, which can be tracked with graphs.  Cronometer has far more fields to work with than my former program.
 
Spiritual, Mental, Physical
I can rate activities on whether they contribute to spiritual, mental, and/or physical development.  Mapping spiritual to fat, mental to carbohydrate, and physical to protein, a pie chart will show these values in relation to each other.
 
Routines
I can set up routines using recipes.
 
Fasting
The fasting feature can map how many hours I put into my business, showing as shaded regions on the graphs.
 
Exercise and Biometrics
I can probably use the exercise and biometric records as well.
 
Productivity and Accountability
It may seem like a lot of work.  However, I have done something like this before, and it increased my productivity and accountability.
 
Ziglar
A time log is one of the suggestions in Tom Ziglar’s Choose to Win.
 
Wisdom
Please, help me to make a wise decision about whether to move forward with this.
 
Amen.
