168 Hours Time Tracking Challenge Day 7

If you kept tracking time through to today, congratulations! You now have an artifact of your life at this point in time, a rough record of where the previous 168 hours (well, almost) really went. I like to print out my filled-in spreadsheets and study them. I will admit that I am a time management freak, but you might find it enjoyable as well! And reviewing wher… read more »

The 2-year-old started yelling for the first time at 4:4… read more »

We are halfway through the work-week, but not halfway through the week. It's a critical difference! My time sheets start at 5 a.m. on Monday (that seems like a good starting point for the week for me). If that's the start time, guess where the half-way mark is. It's 5 p.m. THURSDAY. I don't know about you, but 5 p.m. Thursday sounds like the end of the week to me. But… read more »
