Weekly Data Portrait




I always have a habit of tracking what I did in a day. I get inspiration from creative routines of the best-recognized creative people around the world. Part of my goal is to compare how my routines differ from theirs.

So during 11/18/2020-11/23-2020, I tracked everything I did and categorized into 8 types as below. One round stands for one day (24 hours). There're ten circles, therefore each representing one day in the past ten days. Every color stands for one category.
