Your Time Tracking Tools Should Work Instinctively


Time management is a difficult skill to develop. People struggle with trying to track their hours, track the amount of time given to specific projects and to track time related to other important variables in the business world. One of the ways to make time tracking more efficient is to utilize tools that make it almost instinctive to track time, eliminating the need to spend as much time figuring out how you are going to manage your time resources and allowing you to know what you’re doing, when you’re doing it and to get to work.

Tracking Your Time Helps You Understand Your Small Business


There are many different ways that small businesspeople start tracking their time. In many cases, people who start up a small business may not allocate enough of their energy to tracking their time, which has numerous detrimental effects. At first, one of the advantages of having your own business is obviously the fact that you don’t have to operate on someone else’s clock. What you will find out, however, is that your time is largely dictated by deadlines. If you are unaware of when those deadlines are approaching and what you need to do to reach them successfully, you may be setting yourself up on a path for failure that could easily be changed by simply adopting some good time tracking techniques.

Time Tracking Tools for Freelancers


Some people, rather naïvely, start up their own business thinking that doing so will mean that they have to spend less time working. In fact, the outcome is usually just the opposite. The difference is really that the person who started the business tends to enjoy their business much more than they enjoyed punching a clock for a living.

Time tracking tools can oftentimes identify reasons why a business may not be taking off as it should. Read more…

Time Tracking Is Not Taylorism



Taylorism was a popular management style in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Specifically, it was popular with people who wanted to find a more efficient way to run workplaces, but it was a very unpopular system with people who actually did the work. While some people may not be familiar with the term itself, some workers will consider time tracking tools to be incarnations of Taylorism. To understand what they’re thinking about, why they think that way and how this can be remedied to allow a better system for an entire workplace – particularly a large workplace – it’s important to understand the human and technological elements of time tracking.

The Importance of Visualization in Time Management


Time management requires a range of different skills. While software can help with time management, it really comes down to being able to understand time, which is a bit more difficult than people may be likely to think. When it comes down to it, time is a very abstract concept. We measure time, but we cannot contain it. We allocate time, but we cannot control it. It passes – as far as our experiences unfold – at a constant rate and, because of that, it’s imperative that we always understand how much is remaining, how it needs to be spent and how much has passed when trying to assess the relative efficiency with which a goal is being pursued.

Even the most diligent planners sometimes find themselves facing a deadline, and appointment or a meeting for which they are not prepared. People lead busy work lives these days, projects come and go very quickly and it’s imperative to stay on top of things for the best possible results.

Good Time Tracking Increases Trust for Programmers


When discussing issues of trust as related to contractors, automobile mechanics are among the easiest examples to rely upon. Most people, simply because they don’t like looking at the large figures typical of these bills, tend to doubt whether or not a mechanic really spent the two or three hours they billed for on a project. While a garage is a much different situation than a computer programming shop or another enterprise run by small businesspeople, there are some similarities. Time tracking tools can actually provide an effective way of increasing trust between contractor and client and, at the same time, they can help a contractor to understand their own business better.
