A dead simple way to track your goals and memories

Spreadsheets might be the easiest way to track lots of goals.

And spreadsheets you can access on your phone or from your computer increase the chance you’ll actually use what you set up to track your goals and jot down memories.

One Google spreadsheet to track things you want to do AND memorable events and thoughts

The good old Google Spreadsheet hooks to a Google Form. And it’s yours for the copying. Spreadsheet geeks will love it.

Easy: You can bookmark the form in  your Web browser and in your mobile browser.

Peasy: Stuff you enter on the form feeds into the spreadsheet. Then re-sort, slice, dice on the spreadsheet.

Check it out:

  1. Try playing with the form here.
  2. Then, look at the spreadsheet where you’ll see instructions for how to copy it if you like it.

P.S. I track my expenses the same way. I have a form bookmarked on my phone for all the different projects for which I can expense things. Presto! Within a few seconds I can log miles or enter the cost of that coffee meeting.

Lemme know any suggestions!
