pre-written diary III

find out what you *could* do
  [vote for,

You write a diary, in online formatt every day. (it may be public online or protected with a password.) This service provides you (by the next morning) with a pre-written account of what you *could* do the next day if you were to get everything right.

       So, it takes your actions for the past 12 Mondays and theorizes what you *could* accomplish tomorrow? Or does it treat everyday as an extension on the last and just theorize what could be done next? Then, when you enter what you *actually* did, does it reset the bar a bit...either higher or lower as the case may be?

       Interesting... I might actually get my life moving again with this. Like a smart, adaptable 'to-do' list. With a large enough database it would actually be doable to some extent, although not perfect.   

       Life's adaptable real-time little instruction booklet?

       Yes. Victoria's Secret girls again.   

       Who says you can have too much of a good thing?   

       [Marassa], indeed, I guess you might need some sort of Bayesian algorithm to determine your daily activity aptitude and content?   

       That makes my head hurt, just thinking about it.

       I think a good writer could do this. I might even start something like this in one of the online diary communities I belong to. Only I'd do it without asking, each day I'd write a new entry for the future for a different person... this could be fun...

       What you can do is limited by what you have done. If you drive to Texas and go to sleep there you can't wake up in Main. If you don't pay your bills you can't have perfect credit the next day. If you shave your head your hair won't be long in the morning...   

       Yes you can do anything, but anyone who took a look at what you do today could make a good guess about what'd you do the next day.

       Whoever gets this system would be really shocked to have "You will die of a gunshot tomorrow while trying to get into your car after you lock yourself out." Talk about a bad day.
