How many hours a day do you actually work?

RescueTime helps you understand your daily habits so you can focus and be more productive

You know those days when it's 6 PM and you're like "Whoa, I did a lot today!"

You feel productive, accomplished, and ready for a beer and a taco :-)

But sometimes you have those days when you're "working" in front of a computer all day ... yet you accomplish nothing.

I wanted to find out WHY.

I recently started using RescueTime, an awesome time management and productivity app, that measures what websites/apps/programs you spend your time on.

It gives you a clear picture of what you ACTUALLY do during your work day.

Here's what I found out using RescueTime:

RescueTime shows me how I spend my workweek

Wow. I had NO idea how much time I was mindlessly spending time on social media/reddit in between working.

I would sit down to write some copy, hit a writing block, and then mindlessly open up Facebook. 20 minutes later and I'm reading some dumb BuzzFeed article wondering what the hell happened ...

With RescueTime, I'm learning how to get more work done and be more productive.

Now when I sit down to write copy, I use RescueTime to block all social media sites for an hour.

Once that nagging feeling of checking Facebook comes along, I see this:

What I see when I need to focus and I visit Facebook

Damn it, back to work!

How productive do you think YOU are?

With RescueTime Lite, you can start measuring your productivity today.

  • Take action: Set an alarm to tell you when you spent more than 1 hour on Facebook. Block distracting websites when you need to focus.

Thousands of people are obsessed with RescueTime. Here's what some of them had to say:
