I am the queen of wasting time. Since I began this total running a blog hotfoot in the origin of the year, I ought to doubtlessly get a promotion attributable to even the title Time Waster Queen doesn’t conceal it.
My finest nemesis: Fb. Why compose so many of my friends put up the funniest, most terror-provocative, melt-your-coronary heart, drama-inducing, controversy-ridden, hyper-attractive videos and articles known to man? Sooner than I understand it, half of my afternoon is long past after I had a total list of tasks to total, and I kick myself for now no longer having extra self-defend a watch on. Conclude you compose it too???
I’ll maybe ban myself from Fb, and I’ve even had friends who deleted their accounts for that motive, but I address so many folks in every single set up who I’m in a position to’t interact with in every other case. (My cousins in Sweden, I’m sending you virtual hugs!)
Fortunately, the neat-cookie developers of ATracker asked me the numerous day if I’d be drawn to checking out out their time administration app.
It’s maintain of funny that they messaged me correct just a few days after posting this predicament:
Crazy. Either I’m now no longer on my own or they know me too wisely.
So I gave the ATracker app a whirl, and I’m already getting a ton extra completed on my to-compose list. I am so distinguished extra snug with myself at the tip of a productive day! That sounds so commercial-y, but I’m telling ya friend to friend. Even when I’d came across it on my dangle, I’d be sharing it with y’all.
Here’s how the app works:
1. Yelp Up- As soon as you download ATracker to your iPhone or iPad, you doubtlessly can customise a list of tasks that you just consistently enjoy in your day after day schedule. That you just would possibly additionally even coloration code them, while you occur to elect. It only took me about 5 minutes to establish out easy methods to utilize all of its functions, so you doubtlessly can doubtlessly establish it out in 2. 😉 ATracker has a rapid video to compose it very easy.
To location up my list of tasks, these were my categories:
Be pleased to know what that TV / Sit down back Time consisted of? Gilmore Girls on Netflix, toddler! #basicgirlconfessions
2. Click and Phrase– As you switch tasks correct by the day, correct click on a category in your tracker sooner than you originate. I cherish it attributable to it holds me accountable. I enjoy to consciously suppose to myself, “K, I’m logging into Fb and my time begins now.” I’m much less inclined to exercise too distinguished time there attributable to I understand it is timing me.
Be pleased you ever location a timer sooner than cleaning your condominium? On a busy weekend, the hubby and I had been known to location a timer for 30 minutes and dawdle to neat our residence. It’s amazing what we get done in that interval of time attributable to we’re racing the clock. After which we have time to compose extra fun issues on our Saturday! On the app, I correct click on the “Housekeeping” job, and it logs my time.
3. Peek Your Results– At the tip of the day, the app generates a memoir so I’m in a position to study the set up I spent the most time. I’m in a position to straight present an explanation for the set up my danger areas lie and straightforward methods to merely it the following day.
Nonetheless since I changed into as soon as consciously maintaining music of how I changed into as soon as spending of my time, I did a distinguished better job of reeling in the Social Networking category. The Mommy Responsibilities taking up the most time changed into as soon as a no brainer. I obtained’t be slicing benefit on that one. 😉 Conclude you study that tiny green sliver for Working Out even though? That one is rather unhappy. In my defense, Olivia awakened from her nap sooner than I’ll maybe invent my cardio. Nonetheless my entire to-compose list changed into as soon as completed by dinnertime! That now no longer often occurs.
I’ll be fully perfect with y’all, I wouldn’t need to trace my time administration every. single. day. Nonetheless if I enjoy a huge selection of tasks sooner than me or I want a technique to diagnose my time administration problems, it is a mammoth tool. It holds me accountable if I’m having rush-americaor my to-compose list is de facto lengthy and I need to stay to it direction.
For newbie bloggers cherish me, it will most likely be primarily daunting to address the entire tasks that arrive with developing a put up and interacting with readers, so I extremely counsel it to compose certain you’re placing forward balance in your life.
Factual take a look at out ATracker in iTunes or download it on ATracker’s web set up to present it a attempt.
