Tracking Tasking

Postby Regholdain » Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:46 pm

What do you guys do to track your spirit tasking? I tend to track what I've asked my spirits to help with in the back of my mind (especially short-term stuff that I hope for them to work on over the course of the week), but I feel like they have so many tasks that are sort of open-ended (like protection) that sometimes they are busy and unavailable. I can't always remember what open-ended tasks I've assigned them, so then when they seem distant I can't figure out what they might be off doing. Of course, they can always do whatever else they want that has nothing to do with me or anything they are tasked, but I never know if I'm the cause of their being too busy for me, if you know what I mean.

How do you keep track of what you've assigned what spirit, or the entire keep, or a group, including time frames and the like? I'm just looking for some suggestions because if I try to do this in a journal I won't be able to go back and figure it out. The journal will just be too long to sift through.

I only started tasking my spirits recently-it wasn't any thing I had asked them to do before-but a few of them asked if I was comfortable doing so & I told them if they want to be tasked I'm ok with it as long as they want to! I keep track of it by what it is I am tasking them with-like if I am sending them to keep my cats company-which they like doing anyways! I recently asked one of my protective spirits to keep an eye on my apartment because I got a new neighbor & I felt they were sending their bad energy my way since their apartment is next to mine! I actually find it a bit difficult tasking them because some times I feel like I am tasking them to do something & end up feeling like I am taking advantage or being unrealistic!

Hello,
I have not delegated task to my keeps yet, extensively. This is something I am keen on. I think I will go by journalling. Easier to keep track.

If i can advise you to write in a notebook the tasks , it is way simplier and you will keep track of them more easily.
You write the date , the task , to who and when you finish a task you put a sign.

You can add comments , like the results or how the spirit/entity handled it

I was worried at first too, but after tasking a few things and realizing they want to help, I don't hesitate to ask anymore. I've also learned more about some of their abilities so I've learned who to ask for what sort of help, and otherwise I just let instinct guide me. My problem is I feel I've given them so much to do that sometimes they're too busy to spend time with. Especially my succubus (I). She seems very busy lately and I can't figure out what she's up to. I haven't really asked her though.

That's not a bad suggestion. I'll have to consider this while I organize some other related things in notebooks (like building a catalog of my bindings).

I've decided to use OneNote for my Spirit Keeping, including goals and tasks. It's still a work in progress, but it's shaping up to be quite a massive organization undertaking and turning out quite nice.
