Are You Tracking Your Daily Rituals?

In an earlier post, I shared tips on how you can re-engage with your incomplete goals or start new ones. I also suggested you create a tracker in Excel to monitor your daily rituals. The reality is, I create my tracker in Excel, print it, and use the old-fashioned method of pen and paper to check off what I do.

Why do I use physical paper? It helps me reduce screen time. It’s portable. It’s faster to write. It’s motivating to visually observe my progress. In addition, having my goals readily before me, versus imagining them, helps me prioritize them. Oh, and did you know multiple studies show writing boosts brain activity and memory?

Here is a sample of items I track across four (4) categories. In this downloadable file, I have left space for you to fill your own rituals. You can also create your own categories.

In the words of C. S. Lewis, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” However, to add to your feats, as Pablo Picasso said, “Our GOALS can only be REACHED through a vehicle of a PLAN, in which we must fervently BELIEVE, and upon which we must vigorously ACT. There is no other route to success.”

So, start today. Start with even one new ritual. Master it. Then build on it when you are comfortable.
