If you wish to be more productive with your time, you first need to understand how much time each task takes and monitor your time allocation. That’s where Toggl comes in:

Toggl is a web app which allows you to track your time, by typing a description for your current task and attaching it to a project. It’s a simple app that fulfills a simple requirement for monitoring your time. Although there are a number of features it’s most useful in sending you a report at the end of the week with the time that you have spent on each project.

The only issue with this app is you! Remembering to stop and start your time tracking is the only instance where your tracking might go wrong, although you can adjust the timings later. But if you manage to discipline yourself enough to track your time correctly, you’ll have a fantastic tool to monitor and tweak your workload to be the most effecient and effective you can be.

I have been dabbling in computers ever since I was 10 years old, starting with a monochrome IBM XT – running 128KB of RAM! Therefore, it was not surprising that I ended up as a programmer and website developer. What was surprising for me however, was the realization that I could make a business out of it.

Armed with some knowledge of HTML, PHP and MySQL, I started a small web design company straight after school. Having my own business gave me the freedom to manage my own time. This allowed me to travel, which ultimately lead me to India where I met my wife and where I am now settled.

Thanks to the Internet and the ability to do business remotely, I live in a prime spot of forest in the foothills of the Himalayas – farming by day and programming by night.

I have long since realized that passive income is the best business model. However, to achieve a sustainable level of income proved challenging and took many years to accomplish. Now, as I lead the software development team of TMM, I am confident that our lessons learnt will help others achieve quickly what has taken us years of trial and error.
