Simple data entry
It's everyone's raw material.
How do you feel about how you've been spending yours?
Do you have regrets?
Do you ever space out? Has your time been ravaged by the distraction-rich social media environment in which we find ourselves? Have you figured out what your "One Thing" is, and do you want a way to make sure you spend your time doing it?
Do you get distracted by cute pet pictures on Facebook, and the next thing you know 45 minutes have gone by and you don't know where they went? Or are you like The Oatmeal guy who spends more than 45 minutes, finding himself still sitting in his underpants at 3:00 in the afternoon, wondering where the day went?
Are you making enough money?
Do you need to spend less time doing unrewarding things so you can spend more of it doing rewarding things?
Do you ever wake up and ask yourself what happened yesterday, last week, last month, last year . . . to your whole life?
As an Economist, because I recognize that time is everyone's raw material, I've always been interested in best time management tools and practices, from calendaring to project management to timekeeping to Getting Things Done (GTD) organization methods.
Years ago I devised a hybrid time keeping system for myself, consisting of daily paper time sheets that I summarized by hand and logged the summaries into a computer database. I did that for eight years, from 1996-2003 inclusive, and it helped me launch my business successfully during an otherwise trying time, and maintain my work-life balance. It focused my attention on what I had to do, and kept me positive and goal-oriented.
Now I'm pleased to announce that I've been able to take the best from that experience, combine it with my findings from researching best tools and practices in the field, and produce a simple, easy to use mobile and cloud-friendly time keeping system unlike any other in that it doesn't just track, categorize, and summarize time; it relates it to RESULTS, which we can work together to describe in YOUR TERMS. Because it's cloud-hosted, it can be designed just for you, or for your team.
How cool is that?
So please, contact me for a demo. Let's begin today to make the most of your time.
For your success,

Having Lived More Than Half of a Century
Having lived more than half of a century,
I now know what can fit in a year.
Tracked my time just as though it were money.
The findings are now crystal-clear.
Precious little, it seems. Life is full of
Surprises, diversions, distractions;
Consequences perhaps unintended
That arise from impetuous actions.
Now I look at a year as a very small thing
In which only one or two goals
Can fit without stirring up conflict
'Tween ambitious and well-meaning souls.
So I narrow my goals down to just one or two.
Keep it simple, and sweet, and sublime.
Accept my God-given mortality,
Making the most of the time.
Of maturity, I find here's the essence.
Puerile kids think they can have it all.
But adults understand their mortality
After many a stumble and fall.
How to narrow them down, then? What filter?
Axiology figures it out.
Clarify values and doctrine,
That you might live sans worry and doubt.
Figure what's first, and then do it.
Don't worry so much 'bout the rest.
And think longer term. Look past the next year,
As you work here and now on what's best.
Those future years are where the other goals go.
But for this year, achieve one or two.
I'm sharing this 'cause I want the very best
Of success for all loved ones, like you.
Yes, a life that's Entirely Pleasant,
That's replete with Occasions Sublime,
Will be yours for the taking if only
You work well with this gift we call Time.
I care about you very deeply
T'ward bliss I want your life to go.
Axiology will help you get there.
It will help you know when to say “No.”
And if one or two goals are all you pursue,
You'll be saying “No” most of the time.
So get used to it. Live apophatically.
Be blessed by this wisdom, in rhyme.
