    Yep, absolutely serious. My spreadsheet is how I track my daily writing progress and keep myself on target. It absolutely works. The technique grew out of being a competitive ultramarathon runner (races longer than 26.2 miles). Spreadsheets are how I plan and track training runs, and when I started writing books professionally (while working a day job, going back to school, running competitively, etc., etc.) they allowed me to see IF my goals were attainable and then HOW to attain them on a day-by-day basis. I literally charted my way to a dream come true.

    1. Your spreadsheet for organizing your time for writing, etc., is a masterpiece of time management! It is a sterling example of how to set a goal and organize your time to attain it.
