What’s the best way for a busy executive assistant to track her time?
Question: “I work for three directors who are all very busy. Their workloads have increased over the past year, thus increasing my workload. I am able to complete my critical tasks, but I am unable to find time to do the less important tasks or projects that I have been asked to work on or take on additional tasks. We are going to request an additional assistant to work for two of the directors, while I am assigned to the busiest of the three. I would like to track my time so that we have justification for the request, but I’m at a loss as to how to do that. Any suggestions or ideas from anyone who has done this in their executive assistant role?” —Busy E.A.
