Although I track my own work hours in a Dutch table, I’m sure you will understand it. Every month I keep track of stuff like how much I clean the house, how much I go to the gym and how much hours I worked. In the header you can read ‘WORK HOURS’. I want to draw beautiful headers, but I need more practice, haha. Next to the header your can read ‘February’, the month I’m tracking now.

Beneath the header you can read the date I track. Right now I track from the 27th of January till the 24th of February. This is because my next paycheck will be over these days. The ‘2nd March’ is the date I will get my actual paycheck.

Then in the actual table I wrote ‘Date’, ‘Function’, ‘Start’, ‘Finish’ and ‘Total worked hours (of that day)’. It’s not necessary to include your function in your tracking table, but for my work it is good to know which function I worked, because it explains why I finished late that night.

So I write the date I worked, my function that day, when I started my employ and when I finished it. For everyday I calculate how many hours I worked that day and on the 24th of February I will add them together to come to my total hours worked.

On my next tracking table for March, I will include the actual day of the week in the table. That has also an influence on my work hours (i.e. when I’m finished earlier than usual).

I used to have a app for tracking my work hours, but I didn’t use that consequently. I experienced that this way of tracking keeps me doing it.

How do you keep track of your work hours?

  1. Just come back from Hong Kong not too long ago. I was eating all the time, main meals followed by many snacks on the street. Still I haven’t managed to eat my way down the list of favourite food. Now your blog makes me crave for all those food again!

  3. Keeping track of your work hours is a good if you don’t have a salaried job. If you are paid an hourly wage, sometimes your employer will get your hours wrong. This happened to me once, I didn’t get paid for 3 hours that I worked, so that’s why keeping track of them is important. Thanks for sharing!
