Are you ready for another time saving computer tip? I took last week off (we were traveling while my kids were on Spring Break and I knew I wouldn't have time to keep up with everything), but I'm so ready to start these again!
I am really excited about the new trick I just found today, and think it will help you stay more focused when spending time online. I've found recently that I am spending way too much time online distracted by information on the internet, and have been looking for a way to stay focused here on my work, so I can get off the computer and actually have time for life. (Anyone else with me?) Unfortunately all too often my biggest time waster isn't the computer, it's my choices, so this is a great way to monitor time online.
This little Extension available for Google Chrome or Firefox sets a timer that allows you to see exactly how much time you're spending on each website you visit daily. For me, just knowing that the clock is ticking is highly motivating to keep myself on track!
If you're new to Google Extensions, they're the little logos above that help me manage just about everything I do online. I'll share more about those later this week, but for now when you add Time Tracker to Google Chrome, you'll see the little timer above on your page, and when clicking on it you can see exactly how much time you've spent (or wasted ~ eek?) each day.
If you use Firefox as your web browser, go HERE to download the version for Firefox to your computer. Those are the only two browsers that I know of that support this program, but already I can see how much more efficient I am just by knowing that something's tracking me!
Stop back by tomorrow night when I'll have another tip for you, and if you have any other great time saving computer tips to share, leave a note in the comments section so I can include them!
