Let me tell you a secret.
We are lazy.
Most of us actually do not like working.
If we had the choice, probably most of us would prefer to travel, stay on the beach or watch movies the whole time, instead of working.
The sad news is, that we all are small machines which need food, shelter and many others in order to produce added value in society and in exchange to pay for everything we need. So that we can go and travel, lie on the beach and watch movies from time to time.
When we work, we are not always productive.
We procrastinate. Shut down our brains from time to time. Or just look out the window.
The good news is, that meanwhile there are countless tools for self-management or the management of others.
And maybe the most important of them all, are the ones with a strong component of time management.
But let’s start with the beginning.
Time tracking for self-management
The most relevant area where you can track time is concerning the time you spend on your own tasks. Not at work, but when dealing with your own to-do-s, maybe hobbies and anything else.
It helps to quantify your own stuff in order to become more productive.
But why is time management important at all?
Probably the most important reason is that you become aware.
Once aware, you learn how to do the rest.
You learn how to achieve faster.
You learn how to get more done with less resources in less time.
By becoming aware of how time passed, you manage to avoid wasting time.
You learn how to clear your schedule and gain more free time on your hands – the beach, travel or movie one 😉
You begin to reduce the stress level and become calmer.
Your goal is to learn how to become more efficient, in order to lose less time with tasks and gain more free time.
This changes your life to the better.
Therefore, to have a better, more organized life, start track it piece by piece!

Time tracking at work
There are two categories of businesses:
– the ones where employees track their time and allocate it to the tasks they are fulfilling
– the ones who do not care.
I won’t talk too much about the latter, as they usually are out from the market soon, as competition is never sleeping and market forces eliminate non-performers in time.
Now, if your company does not track your time at work, it might be a good idea to start tracking it yourself.
It is not only good for your own efficiency, but also to prove and back-up any activity you did in the past.
Did a research take longer than planed?
Check out how long.
Did you have a more complex task to do and you forgot all the bits and pieces it took to deliver it?
Everything takes time, if you do not remember in a discussion with your boss, the easiest is to go back in history, check your tracked time tracked tasks and show them one by one and how long did they take.
Can sit, watch and learn while you are making career.
It’s really simple to use.

Time track your employees
Do you remember what I was writing about the 2 types of businesses?
Great, here you go:
– the ones who time track
– the ones who don’t.
