Mostly tracked, yay!

I took the TTC 9 times, using tokens.

Next week, I plan to stick more closely to my alarm settings (no hitting snooze!) and gradually reduce my sleep back to 7 hours a day. Still recovering from a cold – I cough less now, but I still have the sniffles.

I also want to break “Routines” down into more detail, so I can see where my time goes.

    Sasha, and how you’re chronometry? With the using of which commit the time segments, with some accuracy and that usually pay attention to? Only items that are listed in the table?

    I’ve been using Time Recording on the Android to track my time. My records aren’t perfect – there must be misclassified time in there – but it’s enough to get an idea of how I use my time, and to start answering some of my questions. Hope that helps!
