Time Saved: 2.5 hours per week

Track Your Progress...And HOW You Achieved It!

Without tracking your gains and losses, you have no way of monitoring what's working (or not!).

It's like having a really great hair day – you try to replicate it the next day, but don't know exactly what you did to get it that way again.

You can look at this from two different perspectives...

If you're making the progress you're looking for, reviewing how you got there will help you keep up the momentum.

But even if you find that you've reached a plateau and aren't seeing progress any longer, your track record could also help you pinpoint some clear indicators of where you may have been slacking off and where you can re-focus to get back on the path!

Time Saved: An eternity of frustration!
