Optimize Where You Spend Time (Free App!)
Use Rescue Time to get comparative data you can then use to improve your productivity.
Rescue Time is pretty neat and free tool.
It records app usage and reports the time you spend on various apps to determine the productivity score. At the end of each week, you get a detailed analysis of how much time you spent checking emails, writing documents, surfing the web and much more.
The two main benefits are:
It keeps you aware of how you are spending your time on the computer
It helps you remain objective by allowing you to improve productivity by numbers
Once you have the data from the app you can decide what steps you need to take in order to increase your productivity.
Spending too much time on email? Use productivity hacks like only checking email after completing your most important tasks or scheduling time in your calendar to check email twice a day.
