Time Tracking with Fresh Books – New Year Review Edition
January 1, 2008
What have you accomplished in 2008? I know, the New Year is only a dozen hours old but the clock is ticking on your 2008 goals! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could finish the day already having made some progress towards one of your new year’s resolutions?
One of my major resolutions that I MUST achieve in order to reach my self employment goal is to do better managing my time. I setup a Fresh Books account early in 2007 for time tracking but sadly neglected it after the first few weeks. I already have my existing projects setup in the account and I’ll add all my new ones this afternoon. It really is a cool tool for time tracking and invoicing, it gives me everything I need now and has many more features I can take advantage of as my small business grows over time.
Fresh Books makes it easy to track your time which is great, the easier it is, the more likely I am to do it! Every time I sit down to the computer I will start the timer in my account and assign the time to a specific project that I’ve defined. I’ll review the time reports every two weeks to see exactly where my time is being spent and adjust accordingly. I’m not going to focus on any other goals for the year until I have time management/project prioritization under control.
Of course, I’m not the only one looking back on last year and looking forward to 2008. Check out the articles below that cover the best of 2007 and things to look for in 2008.
