One Eye On The Future…

Suffice to say, it’s been a good week. Personally, my style of ‘logging’ changed since I first did something like this in Facebook notes – I’ve written more blog entries than simply lists of activities. I think they make for better reading. But perhaps I need to be a bit more stringent about what it is that I’m trying to investigate in each entry. I have a zillion other outlets for general blogging. The specific goal for this blog was to survey daily productivity. By extension that’s become “survey daily productivity AND your feelings about what you have or haven’t done.”

From a few of the posts and comments, I can see that it’s been a useful experience for those of us that managed to make it all the way through. I’d love to know what happened to the people that started but never finished. I’d love to have seen more cross-commenting on each other’s posts. I’d love to see more comments from people that I know are passing by and following (I’ve had offline conversations with a couple of you…) And yes, I’d love to do it again. I’m thinking about the last week in January, and perhaps quarterly thereafter.

For future weeks, I’m considering inviting people to set their own personal challenges or observational guidelines. Maybe there’s something specific you’d be trying to achieve or survey during a week of this kind of logging. I think writing with specific/clear goals in mind would help your involvement to be a more valuable, transformative experience. Thoughts and responses on this and any other points in comments, please…

Between now and then, I’ll continue posting notes about productivity and related bits n’ pieces. Participants – you’re welcome to do the same. Whether you’re a participant or casual observer, I’m hoping to see you here in the future…
