ChronMe. Stopwatch online since 2008.

Published on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021

Taking control of the time it takes us to perform each days tasks is a good way to increase our productivity. For many of us, our computer is like a black hole where hours disappear and by the time we notice it we have lost all evening without accomplishing anything. This is when we ask ourselves the typical question: What did I do all day?

One solution to this problem can be found in ChronMe, an online stopwatch which will help you measure the time spent on several daily activities by taking keeping an interactive itinerary in the form of a list. It will keep you up to date with the different things you have done, when they started and how long it has taken you to do them.

The English version of the ChronMe online stopwatch has been running since 2008. To date we have received several good remarks from users who use the stopwatch to:
  • prepare speeches
  • monitor project times
  • monitor factory delays
  • measure prenatal labor contractions
  • measure call times at contact centers
  • monitor service requests at a cab company
  • synchronize high quality video
On its intuitive format there are only two buttons: one button starts and stops the timer, the other resets the stopwatch. Each time you stop the watch a new line will appear on your list indicating the start time, length of time passed and the exact date when it happened.

The resulting lists can be downloaded to a computer in CSV and SCSV format, which can be imported into any compatible software such as Excel. Most European users will find that the SCSV format will place the data into columns when opened with Excel. The best approach is to try each and see which suits you best.
Since 2008 we have served close to 20 million users worldwide:

Online Stopwatch Feedback

If you used the stopwatch why don’t you leave me some feedback?
What did you use it for?
Did you like it?
Did you use the download feature?
Any suggestion?
So far I’m aware of following uses:
- record the time used to complete tests on a mathematics page
- record time to complete tests on a music teaching site.
- record time between contractions to know when to run to the hospital. I would never had expected this one :-)

The Rule of 24

Published on Sunday, October 12th, 2008
The Rule of 24
Plan everyday in advance
Practise your ABCDE’s
Apply the 80/20 rule to everything
Take it one oil barrel at a time
Create large chunks of time
Plan to do paperwork everyday
…and plan for emergencies
Prospect a little bit every week
Eat the frog
There will never be enough time to get everything done. But here will be always be enough time to get the most important things done.
You can’t be a winner if you’re a whiner, wiener.
Be wary of distractions
Turn your e-mail chime off. Silence helps you focus.
Make it easy to focus. Clean off your desk every night.
Divide and conquer
