Journeying through the galaxy (my childhood dream) turned out to be unfeasible as a profession, so today I’m a UX designer at Macoscope. I consumed Andy Weir’s The Martian almost in one sitting and it nearly ruined last Christmas for me as I received the final warning from Santa for being antisocial. But it was worth it, as the book seemed mesmerizingly real. Being a huge fan of SF, when I first heard about the casting decisions for the upcoming movie adaptation of the book I was very skeptical, to say the least.
I want to share something with you today: although I’m a Project Manager, I despise tracking time and keeping worklogs. Each day at the office is usually divided into numerous smaller activities with frequent context changes. Despite my utmost desire to map out the workday ahead of me, I can’t fully commit myself to that task because, by definition, Project Managers have to dispatch problems as fast as it is humanly possible.
On the other hand, I completely understand the reasoning behind tracking time and the value that proper worklogs can have for any given organization, and this post will delve into both of these issues. Hold on to your seats, this is going to get pretty wild.
