@evan_fishman oh that thing is neat, pretty sleek too. Here is the site for Timeular https://timeular.com
The device is cool, people would always be like what the heck is that thing?! But I just use their app at this point (because I accidentally broke my device 😂) but I really love the layout because it breaks the time down into nice charts so it’s easy for me to separate the tasks that I timed when I do my invoicing later on. You separate each task with hashtags so you can just search that hashtag in the charts later on and see all the hours you put into it. You can also filter by day, of course, or by client (I use @ for client names). This way when I inevitably put off invoicing for a month, it doesn’t take me long to go through and separate everything. I think their pro version might do some kind of invoicing too. The free version of the app is everything I need though.
@christinebri you must of been throwing that thing all the time hahaah. I guess they need to make it more durable. You should totally get a replacement for free, if I was you. Yeah the app sounds great! I love the hashtag idea.
@evan_fishman I wish I could say that’s how, but actually it’s because I got the battery stuck in it when trying to change it like an IDIOT 😂 Turned out it didn’t even need to be changed - they had changed the platform over so that you didn’t need to use a Bluetooth dongle any more and I didn’t get the memo or do the update, so my device wasn’t connecting anymore and I thought the battery had died 🤦🏼♀️
@evan_fishman I record blocks of intentional time or "this is the time I spent on…" on projects in iCal/Google Calendar (synced), and I write things down in my agenda both as intentions and as "I did this today." I also record the weather of that day because there are two major keys to placing a memory in a way that you can then find the date that something occurred: what was it like outside that day? where did I go and spend money? if you have a record of these things, you can pull them up and remember, contextualize, the things that stood out.
