We recently came across this story on Reddit and it blew us away.

For 5 years, Trevor Sweet—a 22 year old software developer— became a human hourglass. He’s been counting every hour of his life and organizing the data into categories:

  • Sleep
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Dating/Partner
  • School
  • Work
  • Productive
  • Hobbies & Skills
  • Relaxation & Leisure
  • Waste
  • Health
  • Travel

Fascinating habits

When he posted his project to Reddit in January, it became a hit. People were fascinated and he was overwhelmed by the response. Trevor says he’s going to keep tracking his days because he sees no reason to stop.

It helps me put certain events in my life into perspective.
