Get real with how you’re spend­ing your time

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

How do you ac­tu­ally know that all your pro­duc­tiv­ity tips and tricks are work­ing, and that you’re ac­tu­ally spend­ing time on what you say is im­por­tant to you?

You can get real by ac­tu­ally track­ing how you re­ally spend your days. One way to do this is by us­ing your smart­phone’s built-in Cal­en­dar app, and track­ing what you do with your sched­ule, then re­view­ing it at the end of the week.

(Pro-tip: Use Google Cal­en­dar as your core Cal­en­dar app, and sync ev­ery­thing to that, so you can see ev­ery­thing synced up on any plat­form.)

You can also track how you’re spend­ing time on your com­puter with the Res­cueTime app, so you’ll get re­ports on how much time you’re re­ally surf­ing Face­book ver­sus be­ing in your Ex­cel sheet. The paid ver­sion lets you log what you do in real time, so you get a big­ger pic­ture of how you spend your time.
