Computers, with all their multitasking capabilities, make it a breeze for you to spend a surprising amount of time on non-productive tasks and websites. Fortunately, that same multitasking prowess can help you get some time back.
RescueTime is an application that runs in the background while you work, tracking the programs and websites you use, and for how long. A free version has all of the functionality to provide you a good grasp on where you’re wasting time. The $72-a-year paid version offers specifics about which documents you’re spending your time in, as well as offline time tracking.
