Track your time, discover your goals

Clocked by Olivia Escartin, Bangkok, Quezon City, PhilippinesI’ve decided to implement Peter Drucker’s advice to track where I spend my time. If you look at what you spend your time on you’ll see what your real goals are. If it turns out you are spending your time on the wrong things, it is time to change your behaviour.

At work I mix my time between my desk and meeting staff, suppliers and customers. So a wholly online solution is not ideal. I’m experimenting with two Java cross platform applications on my laptop: jWorkSheet and Rachota. Maybe I should use an online solution as most of the time my laptop is connected to the Internet?

Drucker recommended using a piece of paper and write down what you’ve done every 5, 10 or 15 minutes. I think I’d prefer something with a few more reporting tools.

Update: I’m favouring Rachota at the moment for it’s simplicity and design.
