We've all seen the meme that started going around a year or so ago where it tells us that Beyonce also has just 24 hours in a day. I never saw that meme as something really inspiring but it did make me think. We all have 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days in a year and most of us have goals that we 'never have time' to achieve. This got me thinking: where does my time go? How many hours a day do I spend online window shopping, refreshing Facebook and checking out my Instagram feed? I needed a way to account for my time because I knew that it's what I needed to stop wasting time and be productive!
I am a huge fan of apps that can help me be more productive so I downloaded ATracker by WonderApps to see if it could work for me. I find that it's really easy to use and when I enter my activities accurately and honestly, I can really see how much time I spend on non productive things, like playing my 3DS, and how little I spend on my blog. I also see how I can make use of things like my daily commute. I spent 1.5 hours a day commuting to and from work on mass transit. Instead of spending the entire time on iMessaging or being online I can use that time to draft a post each way.
Overall, I really like that ATracker lets me see where my time is going because it clues me in on time that I can use for productive things. My goal is to turn this blog into a real moneymaker and there is no way I can do that if I don't focus and use my time wisely! Here's a short presentation video that shows you how the app works:
I think it's a great tool for anyone that has a day job but also wants to start some side projects or dedicate time to certain activities like reading, exercising or anything else!
