how do I keep track of all the stuff that I'm doing?
Well. I have a text editor that I don't use for anything else but this,
I use Tea. On #Debian #Linux but it can be anything, really.
I make a folder in Documents called day-count
I set my system clock to show the day of the year.
I make a folder for each year, just the number of the year, 2023 for example.
Then each document, as I go about whatever it is I'm doing gets a simple filename schema, for example:
save it, and you have a folder you can easily scroll through when you open the text editor selection dialogue or your desktop window managers file picker. The benefits will be readily apparent when all you have to do is scroll and find the keywords that stand out, or the day number relative to the current day number. It's very fast and efficient. I've been doing this for 3 years now.

I save things as markdown because sometimes I put markdown tags in text files. It's just easier, because markdown is a hybrid format that supports HTML tags, as well as markdown tags.
and no, I don't use calendaring of ANY sort, no day planner stuffs, and I don't even wear a watch. Simple is the best way to go, and this is simple. Plus, you can move it wherever you want, it's not DRM locked to an app or specific UI, and trust that I spent years, over a decade and a half, messing with all that stuff... It will slowly drive you mad.
