Productivity – what programs do you use most?
You might be surprised what programs you use most often. Tools from www.rescuetime.com watch your activity on your computer and give you a useful report about your daily activities.
Their privacy statement and FAQ clearly state that they won’t gather any private information, and if you are willing to trust them, you may learn ways to make huge changes in your productivity. In addition to web site categories, you’ll get reports about using word processing, spreadsheets, utilities, and every one of your programs. Just opening an application on your computer doesn’t generate “time spent.” Rescue Time actually tracks the time you are using the applications.
You may determine you are spending enough time at the news web sites finding out just how bad everything is. Or you may find, like me, that you are devoting many hours per day to responding to e-mail messages.
As with all software, check with your IT professional first, and if they approve then give www.rescuetime.com a try to rescue some of your time!
