Yearlog

  • Last Edit:

See also: WorklogWorklog
Daily and/or weekly notes, often quite detailed, of what you’re doing.
This can be part of a [[Second Brain]], or just a basic log to keep you on track.
Especially for people that are doing a lot of tasks, often many of them small and with context switching, it can be hard to get to the end of a day and feel like you really haven’t accomplished anything.
I’m experimenting with a [[Yearlog]] since I’ve got 20 years of content to play with :)
. And a Yearlog seems awfully big, perhaps a Monthlog is a good place to start.
