The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time.

For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!

Quick little tip here - and I forget where I picked this up - but it's proven very useful. Let's say that you don't want, for whatever reason, your name to show up in the To/CC/BCC type-ahead save for a select few individuals. Say you have Directory Assistance-based secondary nab and you don't want people to hit a particular address - whichever the case. Here's a pretty slick way to do it with no design changes to the target address book!

We'll start by adding a a User Role to the application ACL called isAdmin. Once this is added, I'd recommend giving this role to LocalDomainAdmins, LocalDomainServers, etc. immediately!

Restricting Read-Access to a specific group

Then simply highlight - from the People view - the document you wish to modify, and go to the Security (4th) tab on the Document Properties. Once there, simply modify the "Who can read this document" to explicitly define your isAdmin user role.

Now, if I try to use type-ahead to lookup (for example) my wife:

Directory Search for Shirley = No Results

You can also search the directory and the document won't be returned... unless you have the isAdmin role, that is!
