Passive tracking with active outputCons:
The never ending road of adding new integrations (please add Toggl)
Exist.io is the tool I use to monitor my life and help me iterate over myself.
Its main selling point is its use of correlations between your activities to identify patterns. That makes a huge difference and finally, give some real usage of all the data that we can track.
A concrete example is our some patterns influence my mood changes. I used to maintain a mood journal. It seems that whenever I noticed spikes, I couldn't figure out all the reasons why. With Exist, I was able to notice that some obvious - sleep, time walking -and less obvious - push on GitHub, listening to music - contributors of those states.
I don't need anymore to remember or notes everything. I let the machines do it for me, and I read the weekly and monthly Exist.io reports. And for the data that no machines can track (coffee for example), the custom tracker fills that gap.
