Where can I create a free online journal with prompts that I create?

I'm trying to steer myself toward some daily routines beyond just human maintenance and sustenance. I don't have any ultimate goals to achieve, it's more about daily practice and keeping myself focused on "keepin' on keepin' on" in a few areas that are important to me but that I tend to neglect. I can't find quite what I'm looking for with Google. I can best describe what I want by describing how I would do it on paper: (1)Create a question form with a list of questions and some space to respond essay-style to each question. (For myself the questions would be something like "How was your meditation today?" "What new thing did you create today?" "What artist did you read about today?") (2)Photocopy this form 100 times or so. (3)Fill out one form each day. Is there a free site where I can do this online, or should I just create it on paper with some photocopies in a three-ring binder?

How to track my work by annual goals?

Hi Folks, I'm in a new job and would like to briefly track my work on a daily basis, organized by goal and date. I have ten goals for the year and I want to be able to make a few short notes at the end of each day about what I did to move toward accomplishing any of them, whether I did something for one goal or multiple goals that day. I've been considering a spreadsheet or a Word document, but I haven't his on a good solution yet. Ideas? TIA

stickK - did it work for you?

Does anyone use stickK? Has it worked for you? Any tips for making it work for me? I really need to start exercising regularly but I just can't get motivated to do it lately, so I thought stickK might help. I'm interested in hearing from people who have used it for anything, though.

What really long lists can I put my name on now to thank myself later?

Long Term Planning: I just submitted my name to the Packer season ticket waiting list, which is supposed to be 30 years long. I don't even live in Wisconsin, but life could take me anywhere in 30 years, and I like the feeling of knowing it might be an option one day. Are there any other lists or similar things I should do now? [more inside]
