Subject: time tracking common activities
Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2009 20:20:09 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <m2wsbl8fly.fsf@apache.org> (raw)

I'm using org-mode to track my time on projects and todo items, but I'd
also like to start tracking time I spend on things such as my email,
reading rss feeds, etc.  I'd prefer to continue to use org-mode for that
so that all my time tracking is in one place with one system.

My current thought is to have a `diary.org` file that I keep tasks that
don't clearly fit in any of my projects.  The file would look something

    * <2009-02-20 Fri>
    ** Notes for the day
       blah blah blah
    ** Activities
    *** DONE Checking email                  :email:
        CLOSED: [2009-02-20 Fri 18:56]
        CLOCK: [2009-02-20 Fri 17:56]--[2009-02-20 Fri 18:56] =>  1:00
    *** DONE read rss feeds...

and so on.  I could then archive the contents of the file monthly.

I'm wondering if anyone has any better ideas or sees some particular
flaw to this approach.  I thought about creating a daily repeating event
for things like email, but then the clock section would eventually get
huge, right?
