Updates on Myself.

So, last week, I posted some resolutions. Specifically, I posted a few things that I’m intending to do every day. I’m going to start tacking on progress on those here, simply so that I have another means of motivating myself. You don’t have to, like, actually read the stuff. Most weeks, it’s not going to be my main post, just a side post with updated numbers. This week it is, because you are, at least for rice, getting a back-log of numbers. You’re also getting an explanation of the numbers.

So yeah, I’m a math nerd. I’m a numbers guy. I like numbers. Just to remind you, my daily resolutions were to write a minimum of 250 words each day, donate 1000 grains to freerice, and spend 15-30 minutes typesetting music. I’m not keeping a record on the typesetting music, mostly because it’s all over the place. Some days, I can just be putting in notes and nothing else, and get several lines of music done. I’ve also spent half an hour before figuring out how to work a single command to fix one small problem in a basically completed piece of music (I’m a neat freak about some things. Music is one of them.)

However, I am keeping strict track of what I’m doing for the other goals, and using some numerical tricks to keep myself going. So, for both words and rice, I’m keeping track of my total. That is, the sum of everything I’ve done up to that point. For the rice, I’m also keeping track of my overall ranking. It lets me see how many people are ahead of me in total grains donated, and see myself moving up the rankings. Then, I have a bunch of calculations columns, which the spreadsheets handle quite nicely.

In both, I have the gains for the day (words that day minus words day previous, or same for grains). For the rice, counting how many ranks I’ve risen each day (daily ranking minus previous day’s ranking), as well as how many grains I had to earn per rank (increase in rank divided by increase in rice). There’s also an average gain column, to see how I’m doing on average, if I’m averaging making my goal, and if I’m doing significantly better and need to raise my goal. Then, I have success columns. The first simply says Yes or No, depending on if I achieved the minimum number or not. Then, I have a column for consecutive days of reaching my goal. This resets to 0 every time I miss a day. Finally, I have a total points column; this one adds up the numbers in the consecutive days column. For example, if I have a 5 day streak, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, then I get 1+2+3+4+5=15 points. If I make it the next day, I get 6 points, and my total is 15+6=21 points. If I don’t, I get 0 points for a total of 15+0=15. Also, if I miss, my counter resets to 0 for days, so the next day, I’ll only get 1 point, and not 7.

So, without further ado, here’s the spreadsheets I have so far.
