Whenever working on a time-based project, you have to measure exact time spent on it so that you get paid for it :) Grindstone is a small free windows application that is convenient to use and will measure the time precisely.
You may find it useful to account your hourly work or to identify the tasks that you spend too much time on and optimize it. I used it for both reasons and it did well in both cases – helped me to account my work and I realized myself how much time per working day I spent on actual project work, and how much time is consumed by some administrative and management activities.
Grindstone allows to create your custom projects and tasks within them. The with a help of a small app it measures time spent on each and generates reports. After entering your working hour cost, it can estimate your earnings.
Not only me likes this app – there are several bloggers that also appreciate Grindstone – see one of the posts.
