What I’ve learned after 10 years of quantifying myself – Medium – I’m tempted to try out Eternity myself. Here’s my conundrum though: there’s lots of evidence that the act of tracking something – food, goals, exercise, time spent – produces results even if you don’t seriously analyse the results. But what happens when “tracking” becomes effortless? It seems like there’s a point at which the results drop off. If I were using a manual pedometer and logging my steps each day, I suspect I would be fitter and more motivated than I am when my Fitbit just handles it all for me (and sometimes I forget to even look at the results).
