For the past few weeks I’ve been using TimeSnapper, a little free application that takes screenshots every few seconds (30 is enough in my case) and can then display them as an animation of what you’ve been up to any given day. It’s been a great way to find out about my work habits and vices. For example, my work-interruption cycles are painfully clear (write a paragraph, read that last email, return to the document, answer an instant message, spend five minutes reading news, retun to the document again, repeat), as is the need to do something about them. And, in those rare occassions when I manage to work for a long while interruption-free, it’s uplifting to sit back and see my creative juices making documents grow, bend shape, and evolve until they reach their final form.
