Interstitial Journaling

A form of Journaling. Instead of sitting down and reflecting after the events, you rapidly log how you feel at any given time. It’s a mixture of feelings and tasks For example:

  • 9:01: Starting work. I need to do task a.
  • 10:14: Task a completed. Been distracted.

It’s useful to Be Present and think about what you need to do.

I occasionally use this at work, but it can be a distraction from actually Getting Things Done. It’s especially useful in Org-Mode in Emacs, where a shortcut can quickly add an entry with a timestamp.

I learnt this from Anne-Laure le Cuff.
