With only 24 hours in a day, it's imperative that you keep an eye on what's happening with your time. Talkative co-workers, surfing the internet, and time lost on other unimportant tasks will steal your day away! Take a week or two and track the way you are using your time. Find out if you are staying on track schedule-wise or if there are numerous time-wasting activities happening throughout your day. If so, does the waste happen during a certain part of the day or on a certain day of the week? Keep the time log and you will know for sure at the end of the tracking period.
