Bill Jarrold on Productivity Tracking

When am I most productive?

Bill Jarrold asked himself this question and showed us his answer at the most recent Bay Area QS Show&Tell. He did an analysis of his command line logs and charted how many UNIX commands he issues by hour of the day.

What Bill found was that 3 pm was his peak performance time in terms of number of commands, with a second peak at 10/11 pm. He was surprised to learn that by this measure, his productivity at midnight was as good as his productivity at 10 am.
