Time tracking questions
I've been tracking the time I spend on various projects in order to motivate myself and get a better idea of how I tend to spend (and waste) my time. I've been using an excel spreadsheet with some custom macros to track my time.
I have a small question: If I am doing a couple of things at a time - for instance, if I am working out at the gym, but also listening to an audio book on personal finance on my iPod - do I count this time as 'working out 1 hour', or 'financial research 1 hour' - or both? I multitask like this quite a lot.

Dunno if I'm qualified to answer the question, but IMO, listening to the audiobook doesn't interfere with your workingout routine and vice versa.
So, I believe you can count this one as 1 hour of both.

Count a proportion of each eg 45 minutes and 15.
Multi-tasking is usually not. Eat while socializing and you tend to over eat or not notice you are eating things you don't actually like or even taste.
Do you actually apply the info in the audio? Then count that time, but you were like me you were probably ignoring much of it.
