Tracking Time on your Tasks
Use time tracking apps to get better at completing tasks in your spare time, or to dedicate time on finding a job. Even your stopwatch app on your phone or using your watch can be a good way to get in the habit of tracking time for specific activities. I use an app called Harvest, but you can find one that is right for you.
