Date: Wed, 3 Nov 2021 13:20:27 -0700 [thread overview] Message-ID: <CAJcAo8voEBwsH4mHtEW8AnDKjh4OFaRHzvgPDEogp0MRpgzd9Q@mail.gmail.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> idk if this is useful, but i was thinking of doing something similar, except, automatically for the purpose of recording progress. as in, the number of times i did something to the task. in tags not properties, thus on the header. like :n_2: i tried keywords for progress instead, but that is coarse [cannot "reward" tiny progress] and requires decision making -- is this started or progressed? that can be too much cognitive overhead for me. should i really be deciding if it has progressed? also design decisions --- should i sort up or down by progress kw? up makes more progressed more visible, but usually one puts more progressed downward [e.g. doneish is toward bottom]. and too ugly if they are unsorted, with mixed keywords. so i thought, what if i could just have, say, started, and then, to increment the counter, i change the keyword to itself, started. i don't have the capacity to implement this, and i'm not sure it's what i want, but maybe the change to itself idea is useful.
