RescueTime is time management software for smartphones and desktops that tracks how you spend time on the computer and on the internet. Millions of hours of productivity are lost annually due to workers surfing the Internet when they should be working. Here is how to use RescueTime to be more productive:

  • Download RescueTime and open the program.

  • Let RescueTime run in the background, while it collects data for a week.

  • Go into Categorize Activities and classify websites or programs as work or recreation.

  • Study your activity log to determine periods of productivity and procrastination.

  • Set up filters to block distracting websites during certain periods of time.

  • Subscribe to weekly emails with breakdowns and evaluations of your productivity.
