Time tracking is key to managing your time well in the creative industry. I have been using a tracking app for a number of years. Therefore, I’ve gained an understanding of how important it is to know how long it takes to complete a task. Whether you’re an editor or any other type of creative, then you must have been asked the question ‘How long would x, y, z take?’. Sometimes it can be hard to give a fair estimate. It can feel like a shot in the dark unless you have data to help you give an informed answer.
But how can you collect such data? Quite easily – by simply tracking your production times every single day.
