You know how I love my organization systems (and there have been more in the past). Following from I call the idea cascade, I developed a new system. For the first time in my life I’ve consistently followed my system. This post serves to describe this system and the benefits and challenges I’ve discovered from using it these last few months.
The system is currently focused on Goals and Actions, but has not yet explicitly included the higher Purpose/Meaning level. The tools used are Todoist and Google
Docs Drive, in particular a Form. In a nutshell: I define quarterly Goals, record my progress daily and review my progress weekly and monthly. I use a to-do list to keep track of the Actions I must take to reach my goals. This system provides enough detail and data to satisfy my mildly obsessive tendencies, but also allows for plenty of freedom and flexibility so that it doesn’t stifle me and kill joy. It’s pretty neat.
