I really hate personal micro managing and time tracking, but I was intrigued by some of the stories a recent team meeting so I bought a little booklet today and decided to just add a 2-5 word log entry every time I did something, changed focus/context, or anything that kind of struck me as needing logging.
Here’s my favorite segment from the day:
10:00 - Begin deploy 1.18 10:15 - Complete deploy 10:19 - Revert deploy 10:25 - Attempt re-deploy 10:30 - Nope 10:37 - Found problem 10:42 - Redeploy 10:59 - Deploy again 11:06 - It worked!
12:24 - Rant about idiots
It was a good day.
