If you don't measure it, you can't manage it.
I want to pay off my credit card debt. But I'm doing a terrible job. I bought Quicken a while back, but don't use it. Stupid. Gonna fix that tonight.
Likewise with my fitness goals. My weight (and body fat %) is creeping steadily upward. I'm going to start by posting my current weight on the fridge, and ditching all sweets from the house. (I've also just set up Calorie-Count.com on my phone.)
And the strain of doing an extra night of martial arts every week is showing. Laundry is piling up, I haven't been able to climb or bike, and I'm feeling pretty sore today, when I should be fresh and ready for more. Must stretch after every workout, and get 9 hours of sleep if I'm going to do workouts on consecutive days like this.
And I haven't seen my friends in a while. Some in months. Others in years. Must fix this.
So, tonight's to-do list:
- Cancel/freeze gym membership. ($28/mo, and I never go.)
- Get Quicken set up.
- Post weight on the fridge.
- Hook up Airport express for printing and backups.
- Bed by 10:30 PM.
Really, what I want is a small "scoreboard" web page I can hit from my iPhone. I would have my weight, my bank balance, and my credit card balances. Might not be too hard to hack together...
