I'm pleased to welcome back Timing as this week’s MacSparky sponsor. Maybe you’ve never thought about it, but the ability to know how you’re spending your time on your Mac is a great way to find holes in your productivity. I'm a believer in time trackers but manual time trackers suck. They are a distraction and I always forget to use them.
This is where Timing comes in. Instead of making you do all the work, Timing automatically tracks how you spend your time. It logs which apps you use, which websites you visit, and which documents you edit. You can easily categorize activities into projects.
With Timing you can look back at the end of the day or week and see where you got work done and where you got lost. You can also reconstruct how many hours you spent working on a specific client project.
Timing does the job and gets out of your way. It’s a one-time purchase (no subscription) of $39, but with the coupon code MACSPARKY, it drops to $29. That’s right … I twisted their arm to give you $10 off, though only until the end of the week. So give it a try and see if you can’t fine tune your own productivity heading into 2017.
