I recently started a new job where my manager is very hands-off. I’m working on increasing our contact but I want something to help aid me in tracking what I’m doing daily so I can accurately report to him and self-assess my progress.
Do any of your journal your workday? If you do, what tools do you use?
My largest constraint is that my solution has to be hosted locally on my workstation yet backed up. I’ve given thought to using TiddlyWiki. I have OneNote and could just creation a new section for journaling and create new pages daily/weekly. I’m on a Mac but command line tools are completely in-bounds.
I’m interested in what the rest of you have done, what value you’ve derived from it, and why you continue to do it or why you stopped.
