Time to mention a cool new productivity/time management tool: Joe's Goals. (Thanks, Joe, wherever you are.) You quickly and easily add goals/tasks/habits you'd like to track and then check them off. (There's something very satisfying about checking things off.) You can have goals appear only on certain days of the week (helpful for sorting weekday from weekend items). You can tag each goal with tag(s) of your choosing and then opt to view only the goals with that tag (I'm currently using Home, Personal, Work, Family, but I could see getting more intricate with it if you had multiple jobs, for example.) It's easy to see how you're doing because the far right of the screen tells you how recently you checked off a goal. I last got at least 30 minutes of exercise 4 days ago. Sigh. You can track positive goals (exercise) or negative (oversleep). I prefer to track the positive goals -- the negative side is relatively obvious. If I don't make it to work at my desired time, then I probably overslept, or wasn't organized enough at home to get out the door in time.
Here's a screenshot of part of my current list:
It's really easy to see where I'm hitting the mark and where I'm not. Ahem. I'm not really a Franklin Covey devotee, but I like the idea of making sure I'm doing Urgent & Important things (Quadrant I) and especially the ever-elusive Important but not Urgent things (Quadrant II).
Not necessary, but helpful: I find it particularly useful when accessed through Firefox because I use Session Saver (absolutely indispensable extension) to restore all the tabs I left open when I closed Firefox at the end of the previous day. This way, I don't have to remember to open Joe's Goals -- it's there every time I open the browser.
