Google Sheets Based Life Tracking Dashboards

Davide de Souza is a quantified selfer who got serious about tracking as much as he could. He picked 35 of the most important areas of his life to track and set up semi-automatic feeds to push all the data into Google Sheets. He is collecting data using a combination of the Fitbit API and RescueTime plus some manual data entry.

The broad categories he is tracking are health, productivity, food and giving back. The dashboard tabs provide insightful summaries of his goals and progress. He has also been able to make various correlations which are difficult to accomplish today due to limited data aggregation tools. His project makes me realize just how powerful Google Sheets is.

  1. Wow! I don’t see that he has a bucket for “Time Spent Quantifying Self.”

    To track the details of your life at this level is certainly a sign of madness. But… To freely offer this information to the ‘Google Data Store’© makes the activity certifiably insane!

    Kudos for the infrastructure work though, and I do understand that bean counters like to count beans – so more power to them. Still, I’m left wondering if the endeavor eschews mental health for the socially endorsed (enforced?) ideal of perfect physical health.
