Pile-up Gantt Chart
Pile up what you've DONE. People (like me) may feel more comfort and happiness to see piling up things get, things done, like a souvenir. This is completely opposite approach to traditional Gantt Chart which evolves downward. For me, the traditional one is not intuitive at all. So I build up this template for myself. I name it as "Pile-up Gantt Chart".
Once you understand the mechanism, you can make your own chart. The showing picture above is daily, but you can make hourly or monthly, or even yearly. You can download my template as start point anyway. ;)

It's so simple. So you can implement some more option easily. :)
