Should you track your time?

Interesting piece from CPA Practice Advisor about the value and importance of time tracking.

As a consultant I’ve tracked my time for the majority of my professional life. When you bill by the hour it’s mandatory. But if it’s not financially motivated, tracking your time can still be a hugely beneficial activity in your efforts to become more productive. 


Can you be productive in 40 hours?

Our modern work culture has trained us to think the only way we can be successful is by working extraordinary numbers of hours each week. I have to wonder, are they being as productive as they can be, or are they compensating for poor productivity with increased hours.
