I've tried time tracking during work hours just to get a better sense of where my time goes but ultimately couldn't make a habit of it because it was frustrating to have another context-switching task. I also used to have the RescueTime extension (per @maestromac
's suggestion) but didn't find the data very useful so I turned it off.
I'm glad I've never had to do time track for an employer.
Yep, that definitely adds up to context switching. And I often forgot to pause/switch tasks 😬
I have tried RescueTime as well but it didn't stick.
