Time Spend, is Time Earned #TimeManagement

People are amazed when I say I can spend at least 40 hours a week behind a computer, outside of my regular 9-5 job. Now I have a nice little proof of that from ‘s usage page.

The blue is all Internet, the brown Utilities and the purple is Office. It’s funny to see the last 6 weeks reduced to a simple graph, yet it is quite accurate in the depiction of my time. Most of my work does consist of using Internet for research and Utilities such as for my development work. The Pareto principle holds for this graph too, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

As I was writing this I had a look at the presentation I put online last week and I saw that this data could also be used to assure yourself that you are meeting your targets. However this is all after the fact, where as with most of the Time Management techniques it is important to be able to change your actions while you are in the flow.

In my experience, and that of many others, evaluating the Time Management Journal takes some time to master. And in all honesty that is not where most can be won. The Time Management Success Journal is the place where most can be won, it should produce a graph similar to the one above. Obviously this would be tailored to the specific categories that were chosen.

SO how are you getting
