Does anyone have any advice on tracking hours worked on specific projects, goals reached and stuff like that? We're going to very specific metric-oriented evaluations for my organization, including time spent on processes as well as our former big picture goals, like how money was raised.
For example, I need to track how long I worked on a program and which days, which of several grants it was tied to, and then be able to drag it all up again at the end of the year to write the final reports.
Or I need to be able to report to my director that I made 5 contacts with Funder X, on these dates, and this is what we talked about.
I use Outlook and an ancient Visor. (I don't want to give it up, I love it and it is in many ways much nicer than the chintzy ones I see these days, although I would not refuse a T-5 if Santa brought it.)
But it isn't so much that I am interested in software - I am wondering where this all fits in with the GTD process. Is it a task? What next action? Does it just get noted on my calendar, and then I have to dig for it at the end of the year? Is it only part of my weekly review?
I think perhaps I am confusing myself here, but can't quite put my finger on it. If anyone could guide my thinking, I'd appreciate it!
