Tip No. 5: Seek Advice If You Need It

Don’t discount the value of community, especially if you have a significant goal.

“Increasingly, physicians, nutritionists, and trainers are incorporating tracking into their offerings,” says Paul Abramson, MD, a QS enthusiast. If you end up with more data than you know what to do with, they can help.

You can also get support and info from quantifiedself.com. This web site hosts meetup groups in cities and communities around the world. It's a collaboration between users and makers of self-tracking tools. Also check out:

  • Experimental.com: The blog for the app AskMeEvery, which helps users track daily behaviors, emotions, and actions.
  • Quora.com: This site allows you to post questions and get answers from users with first-hand experience. It has quite a few questions and answers about the Quantified Self movement as well as about specific fitness devices and apps.
  • The QS Facebook group or the Linkedin QS group

Tip No. 6: Embrace the Unexpected

Finally, be it food, workout, stress, or just about any other kind of tracking, be open to what you learn. Give results your attention, especially when they're unexpected.

Kat Bishop, a New York executive, tracks her moods in her life through daily one-minute video diaries. “Tracking has made me pay attention and see beauty and oddity in places you often overlook,” she says. Now that's a pretty effective mood lifter.
