Tracking your time in the workplace will help you get more productivity out of yourself and feel more accomplished at the end of the day.
There are a number of time management software products which companies may provide to monitor your time. These include time tracking software which identifies what kind of tasks you are actually carrying out on the computer, and this can help to provide a good indication of where you tend to delay and waste time.
Using clever software products such as goal setting software or generating printable to do lists is of no use at all if you cannot use those goals or stages to reward yourself for achievement. We all do better if we are rewarded for it!
You might find that the process of creating a list of fun things to do gives you a lift. It can help to motivate you to create an effective series of manageable tasks throughout a project which will give you a real sense of forward momentum and achievement.
Once you start to feel a sense of achievement and can see clear progress, moving on from the fun things to do to the work becomes less of a hurdle. This is because you know that it is a system that works, and that you will soon have not only another treat time, but that when you do you will have gained another sense of moving forwards and achieving success.
There are in fact a growing number of time management games, and these games, whilst superficially silly, have at their heart the same idea of reward and providing you with fun things to do. In order to move on to the next level, you must achieve a certain level of success, but if you do, then you will be rewarded by a humorous celebration, more interesting abilities, more money or other such incentives.
Perhaps you may even consider that playing a time management game could be one of the fun things to do on your list.
And we should always strive to improve ourselves in the area of personal productivity and time management.
