I love tools that help me be more productive or more self aware (especially where Time Management is concerned).
What it is. (from Rescuetime.com):
Personal time management software. Get the focus you need to get things done!
Features. (also from Rescuetime.com):
– Automagical app & site tracking (with no data entry!)
– Beautiful time & attention reports for managers only
– goals, alerts, and blocking
I discovered them a few months back. It”s been a fantastic way to introduce a feedback loop into my work that allows me to see where I”m wasting time, when I”m most productive, and when I”m somewhere in between. For example, I”ve learned I have a bad habit of checking facebook, email, and twitter throughout the day. Using their blocking feature, I am able to block those services whilst in delivery mode.
Their interface is smooth. Their widget works fine. I”m pretty happy with their service..
