Melissa works at a hospital as a Sr. Analyst. With jumping from project to project throughout the day, Melissa found it difficult to remember how much time she exactly spent on each of them. The fast pace with back to back meetings and working sessions didn’t make it any easier.
“ I always felt I was spending too much time trying to remember how exactly I spent my time for each client.”
Finding joy in time tracking
Melissa starts her day with the most immediate tasks in mind. Projects and their priorities tend to fluctuate. With that she finds herself pushing on tasks aside to focus on another. At times she feels she is working on multiple projects in tandem and totally forgets about tracking what she did. At the end of the week, she often was frustrated because she couldn’t recall the accurate time spent on her different trading partners. This made her feel anxious.
Now with Timeular, it’s easy just to flip anytime she makes a change with her focus on work. Furthermore, she wanted to make the Timeular Tracker fun and interesting to keep her motivated to use the tool. Melissa loves art – especially Van Gogh – this is why she decorated her Tracker with his paintings.
“I am not one that finds joy in tracking my time. Thankfully, I can now simply flip the Timeular Tracker.”
Being mindful about your time
Melissa now has a better understanding of where her time is spent. And most of all, she is confident with being accountable for her time as she is more mindful with that now.
She needs to keep her calendar open for meetings scheduled with other co-workers throughout the day. Depending on the results of the morning scrum calls, the day of meetings can pass by very quickly. “I am more mindful of my time…I guess it is not the in-the-moment mindfulness. However it does allow me to be present with my work.”, she says.
At the end of the week, she likes seeing how much time she spent on each of the activities.
“This helps with providing better estimates so we know how accurate it is when it comes to billing our trading partners and the downstream data exchanges.”
