Completed! GHDR Tracker Form! (GHD005)

"Final Form" Today has been rather sleepy day, since I was up way too late debugging some code for another project, but behold! The first release of a Groundhog Day Resolutions Tracker is born! I have my own version, but also have made a blank version if anyone wants to give it a try.

Here’s the Final Design

Picking up from yesterday, I wanted to add some date information and figure out how to make it look nice. I did make a few changes to the point list too.

Here’s the Release:

And for the sake of comparison, here’s yesterday’s progress:

The current prototype

A new thing design-wise was removing the multi-colored goal list on the left, because I wanted to reserve the candy rainbow effect for the points list. I chose a kind of purply color that reminded me a bit of a mimeograph, or maybe grape soda…I like the color, so used it throughout to serve an an anchoring color used through the design.

As I was looking over the final form, it occurred to me that most of it was applicable to anyone’s goal, so I made a blank version to download and print. I haven’t actually test-printed this in color yet because my POS Epson Workforce 4630 has problems printing in color and has to go back for warranty service AGAIN, so if there are any issues let me know.

This one is for people who want to follow along with Groundhog Day Resolutions, using the specific point list critera I’ve developed.

NOTE: The dotted lines in the second column may not print if you are using a non-Adobe PDF viewer that doesn’t draw them correctly.

This is the form with a blank goals AND blank points list so you can make-up your own points.

Next Steps

So with this out of the way, I’m ready to actually start working actively on my goals…ulp! I actually feel a bit of trepidation because these goals DON’T FEEL EASY TO DO. I might have to actually modify an ETT or ETP to work with this tracker form for daily pacing too; perhaps a new kit can come out of it, which would be worth 10 points!

This might be a good time to schedule a first Google Hangout with everyone who expressed interest in forming the informal review group for our goals. Unless someone tells me that there’s a strong reason not to use Google Plus Communities for a discussion area (everyone has a Google account right?), I’m probably going to try using it for this. Let me know what you think in the comments!
