Over the course of 24 hours I usually learn something. Sometimes it may be something like what twerking means or how to get dirt stains out of the carpet. While both of those items might be equally fascinating in the moment I learned it, I will use the dirt stain information more than twerking. So here I have decided that each day I will post the most interesting thing I learned today with the goal of learning something cool each day.
Today I learned a cool way to keep track of your time. Having worked from home, I always wanted to keep track of how much time I spent on tasks. There are programs that will help you log your time but really all you need is Notepad.
Open Notepad and type on the first line .LOG. Then save the file. The next time you open the document, Windows will put the timestamp on a new line. Voila! An easy way to track your time and it is already on your computer! Plus it’s always fun to do a cool trick with your computer and who knew that something cool could be done with Notepad? Well, apparently Lifehacker did because that is where I learned about it. But still. It’s a neat way to track your time, won’t cost a dime, or cause you to install/learn any software.
