Change in work style/practice

Yesterday I spent some time catching up on Twitter (what else do you do when you’re feeling sick and tired with a horrid head cold?) and found a friend’s suggestion of toggl.

It’s a timer tool and let’s me keep track of work, projects and tags.  I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a while – I need a 4 week diary to claim home office expenses, and my big project has the potential to eat my life if I let it (it may also get ignored for too long at a time).  I’m also interested to know how much time I’m spending on that project – I think I have a bit of imposter syndrome with it and I’m underestimating what I’m really doing and playing it down when I talk to people.

Anyway, I seem to work in bigger chunks when I’m timing myself and I’m more decisive about when I’m taking a break and for how long, despite feeling a bit miserable with this cold.  Let’s see how long it lasts…
