Timesheets are used to track one’s time accurately, and if the billing is hourly they are an absolute necessity.
I am not a big fan.
We have two catchall timesheet categories that are not directly related to billable work: Administrative and Marketing.
These are not only poor descriptors but I feel neglectful, even lazy or wasteful when I use them.
So what am I really doing with this time?
Probably the most important things: Helping. Listening. Consoling. Encouraging. Engaging.
Life is made up of relationships. They take time.
And they are not billable.
