I love a good tracker. Extensive or short, complex or simple, show me how something is coming along and I'm a happy camper.
I have a tracking sheet for my newsletter so I know what I've shared. I have trackers for my blog. For work, I have good ole lists where I cross off project steps as we go along. I wear a FitBit. My bullet journal has several trackers including what TV series we're watching, habits I want to keep, tasks I want to get done through the year, monthly tasks, and a cleaning checklist.
My husband was out of town this week. I tracked his flights online. When he ran a marathon, I kept tabs on him through Find My iPhone so I knew where to meet him to cheer him on.
I love trackers so much that they don't even need to be relevant for me.
Case in point, I am addicted to checking the tracker for "The Queue" [gift link]. This is more formally known as "Her Majesty The Queen's Lying-in-State." It's an official government feed on YouTube that shows the length, wait time, and location for those who want to pay their respects to the queen. I'm not in London. I'm not going to go to Westminster. I still can't help myself from checking this feed several times a day. I want to see where things are at and read the little notes they add to let people know what's going on.
If you give me the chance to see what's going on with a "thing," I will use it.
Do you like trackers?
