We all want to have more time.
One of the best ways to have more time is to simply spend it on the right things and to stop spending it on the wrong things. Easier said than done.
Enter RescueTime. A free application that runs in the background and keeps track of how you spend your time. It groups programs into categories and ranks them into varying levels of productivity (all customizable, of course).
At first I was just curious. I thought it might be interesting to see a breakdown of my time. But then I realized that it made me more conscious of where I was spending my time. Almost like someone looking over my shoulder, it encouraged me to stay on task. Just the thought of the program running was enough for me to be more productive.
So go ahead. Find out exactly how many hours you’re spending on Facebook. If you’re like me… that number might be unsettling.
