doc_faustroll has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello you enterprising lot,
This is not so much a perl question per se, as a life hack question.
How do you keep track of the hours you spend working on various projects? Do you use any automated tools that you have hacked up that keep tabs on time spent modding files in certain directories?
Do you scan your email once a week? Do you use a pencil and paper each day?
Do any consultants use phone apps that record the time spent on calls with clients. I was thinking of hacking my phone to do such.
Some of you such as Damian and Merlyn just charge a day rate, which keeps things simple. It is still nice to have a breakdown of hours spent doing what. How do you record and how do you organize your time spent on whatnot?
