Powered by Accomplishment Chart Technology

I have added another layer to my Accomplishment Chart system. I recently decided that I wanted to ensure I wrote something every day, no matter what it was. Well, I don't do anything that I don't regiment in some way because I am by nature undisciplined and indolent. So I decided that I would keep track of what I specifically wrote each day in a manner similar to how I record my creative endeavors in general for the week. I am very specific with it, more so than I am on the larger Chart. "Brainstormed for this." "Began first draft of this." "Finished second draft of that." And if I look at it and am dissatisfied with the amount of work it represents, it motivates me to write something else. It's increased my productivity at least a small bit each day already, and I've only been doing it a couple of weeks. I think that cumulative improvement will pay off.

I don't think I will be posting this one like I do the big one. But I find it extremely motivating to do things when I can reward myself by putting them on a list of my accomplishments. It's kind of silly, I guess, but it works for encouraging me to productivity. In the last year I have resolved to working with the various quirks of my brain rather than struggling against them. If my brain likes to get to tick off things on the chart, then giving it reason to tick off things on the chart will help it get stuff done.
