Keep Score

Do you like to keep score?

We've got dozens of ways to track our progress on our goals these days. Web and mobile applications for charting our exercise progress, our goals results, our action plans. If it works for you, go for it.

I'm a score keeper. Competitive by nature, it takes a bit of an effort to reign that in for the sake of cooperativeness. It's possible, it just takes a conscious effort. Keeping score can get in the way.

But, keeping score can also prod me forward. Keeping score let's me know how I am doing in connection with my goals, and in a sense, who I am becoming.

We become the result of our goals. Achieving them gets you one result, missing them gets you another.

If keeping score motivates you, by all means keep score.

What works for you?
