“Similar to how LeBron structures his training to win NBA championships, knowledge workers should train to build skills, complete projects, and increase their productive power. Armed with an effective system, we’ll learn faster and have more fun doing it.”
This project tracker is based on this blog post by David Perell. The goal is to learn in three-month sprints to achieve some end result. This template allows you to track all the books you want to read, the people you want to study, and other projects you want to accomplish in the next 3 months. To start, you’ll write a positive vision about what you want to achieve, the purpose for your goal, and start and end dates.
You can then start adding items to your project tracker depending on whether it’s a book you want to read, person you want to research, or other miscellaneous projects. For each individual project, you can define the duration (in minutes) you want to spend on the project, the status, total estimated hours, and actual hours to complete the project.
Watch a tutorial on how to use this template.
David leads an online writing course called Write of Passage and hosts the popular North Star Podcast.
