Personal approach for collecting Emacs usage statistics advice?

Lately I've been curious whether or not my actual Emacs keymapping
usage actually reflects how I think
I use it. What I mean is that I have a goal of mapping frequently used
operations to easily-accessible keybindings on the keyboard. What I
plan to do is to record my usage so that I can study it to find
decisions that I got right, and wrong, and also identify things that I
use that I should be mapping closer to home.

The simplest approach would be to use a keylogger, or advice inside of Emacs.

What I am curious about is your approach if you had done, or would do,
something like this, and your thoughts an ideas.

In my case I lay out my mappings for how far away from home they are,
and that has worked well so far, but I would like some numbers to back
up that claim though it is not too serious depending upon how you look
at it.

Kind regards,
