Activity review by Toggl Track

I started to use Toggl Track to record my daily activities. I want to know how long I spend on what. I record not all activities because it takes a bit of time to start/stop the timer. The period is January – June 2021.

Total

I recorded 774 hours in total. I took two months long parental leave in April and May. I learn German but I didn’t spend enough time on it. I need to spend more time on it but it’s not easy to keep the motivation if I have something else to do like Blog or Book. I have read more than 100 books in this half-year. This was quite good to learn new things, especially about health care. The following table shows detail of Daily life.

I spent 100 hours on kitchen related, washing dishes and cooking! I like cooking. It’s ok but I spent about 171 hours on Youtube. It’s not only on Youtube but also on movies. I may be able to spend part of this time for German.

Let’s have a look at the result for each month.

It was vacation until 6th. Looking at this diagram, I started recording my activities on the day. I spent many hours every weekend. Let’s check what I did between 15 – 17.

I spent more than 8 hours on YouTube!! Oh… How wasted time it was. Maybe I watched some channels that show eating, cooking, and book summaries. 1 hour for Book. I didn’t write the book title then but I guess it’s programming-related. I normally watch Youtube only on the weekend. I start watching it when I start having dinner.

I spent 44h23m on my Blog. There is one entry that has no description. I don’t know what I did then. Maybe it’s setting for server or something else. Book time is almost the same as January. YouTube time is less. I added Children project this month but it’s impossible to track all activities for it.

Let’s zoom into one of the weekends again. I spent 8 hours on YouTube between 5th – 7th whereas 5 hours on Book.

The book titles are almost Japanese but there are two books written English. Limitless and Range. Both of them are really great books. Limitless explains how to learn. The author Jim Kwik often got a bad grades at school because he thought he had memory issues. However, he found how to learn in his life and became a brain & memory coach and taught his method to many people including Hollywood stars. Its story is described in the book. His advertising started appearing on my Facebook after I bought the book. My activities were tracked very well… This is the internet.

Range tells us how powerful the range of knowledge is. Coming to the point, the knowledge of the various field is powerful because there are lots of things that are well known in a field but not in your field. A solution that everyone knows in other fields but not in your field can be applied to solve your problem.

It was parental leave for the whole month. I had enough time and spent much of my time on Book. The fields that I’ve read about were business, health care, medical, education, finance, and mindset. I wrote down the points that I didn’t know in a notebook. The notebook is full of useful content for me.
The baby was born in March and I thought I couldn’t sleep well but luckily I could. So I could spend my own time well.

May in 2021

It was still parental leave for the whole month. The genre of the books that I’ve read was the same as in April. Book time was longer and no time for the blog. I started recording piano time that I started playing this year. A brain gets active by playing the piano. Its good effect propagates to other things to learn. I believe piano makes my brain clear and efficient.

YouTube time is 31 hours but I think it’s not so bad because it was the holidays. It was the rainy season and it rained 2/3 of this month. I wanted to take my first child outside more often but couldn’t because of the rain. I added a Family project to track shopping and something else like picnics.
I didn’t spend enough time on German. It was 2 hours in April and 6.5 hours in May. Hmm…

June in 2021

I started blogging again. I get up around 4:30 am to make enough time to write. This routine goes quite well for me and I want to keep this.

I practice playing “To Zanarkand” from Final Fantasy 10 and main theme from Dragon Quest. I can almost play “To Zanarkand” now. The main theme from Dragon Quest is hard to play but I will master playing it.

I’ve read To Pixar and Beyond in Japanese. It was a very nice book as entertainment. The author tells how hard Pixar’s situation was and how he could manage to make a value. It tells what kind of person Steve Jobs is and how he behaved. Pixar makes great movies but I thought this story itself could be a movie.

Summary

Reading books is of course a very good habit but I think it’s more important to do output than input. It doesn’t make sense to read a book without output. This blog is a good opportunity to do it for me. I’ve known how long I spent on Youtube but this result shows clearly how long I actually spend on it. Youtube to watch book summaries gives me new knowledge but others are just entertainment. I want to reduce this time and use it for different things, for example, to learn German. I will try to reduce the time gradually.
