I’ve shared this little productivity tip with enough folks who have found it useful and figured I’d make a post out of it.
I love time tracking and I love task lists, but boy do I hate managing them both. So, I’ve been using my time tracker as my task list.
I use Harvest for time tracking. It allows you to create time entries in the future and I suspect many other time tracking apps do the same. That means today I can enter all the time entries I plan on doing tomorrow. Or, if I’m feeling super organized, I can create entries for the following week. All of my tasks are right there in front of me and ready to clock my time.
If I don’t get to a task that day? No worries. Harvest has a subtle feature that allows me to move a time entry from one day to another. Now, I’m good to go for the next day.
Again, other apps are probably capable of doing the same.
I know, it’s a super small thing but it delights me every day and helps me manage two important things in one.
