Good calendar software can be used for more than just tracking appointments - choose calendar software that allows you to enter large amounts of free-format text in each day, and you can keep detailed logs, journals and diaries to better meet your life goals.
We are all familiar with the traditional use of a calendar to track appointments and events. This is true whether the calendar is computer-based or software-based.
But many of us are missing out on an opportunity to track our progress towards goals and achieve goals, even difficult goals, by not thinking to use computer-based calendars to record our activities. It’s not surprising that we don’t think of this, because we’ve all been based to think of calendars as having a very limited amount of space for entry – just a little box in a wall calendar, or just a few lines in a daily planner. Not only that, but most computer-based calendar software compounds the limitations by forcing every calendar entry to be an ‘object’ – that is, a little structured computer event. This helps the computer on scheduling, but it further constrains you.
A new generation of web-based calendar software is breaking the confines of these older style software packages. The new general makes the calendar available through a web-browser, so you can access it from any Internet-connected computer and there’s no need to install software on your computer. But, more importantly, this new calendar software supports unlimited free text entries in each day of the calendar — meaning the calendar can be used as a daily diary, exercise log, travel journal, and more.
Some of the calendar software also support a surprisingly powerful feature – secure online sharing of the information. While the information in your web calendar ‘journal’ is always secure and private to you, you can, if you choose, grant password access to family or colleagues. So, for instance, your elderly father might enter his 3 times-a-day intake of a dozen prescription medicines, and you would have the ability to log in and see his private, secure ‘medicine journal’ online, even though you live in another city.
Another example would be business colleagues who work in different offices could share an online calendar where they make entries and detailed notes, and everyone in their team has password-controlled access to the shared web calendar journal.
I think you get the idea now – whether it’s for exercise logs or gardening journals, travel diaries or business diaries, a shared, online web calendar that supports unlimited text entry can be a powerful tool in achieving your goals.
