Is increased productivity one of your resolutions for 2017? If you're like many agents, staying focused on the task at hand can be a challenge in a business where new lead interruptions are frequent — and welcomed, client needs often dictate the flow of your day, and you regularly spend more time out of the office than working at your desk. Have you ever wished you had more time in your day? Have you ever wondered where all of your time goes?

Rescue Time is a time management tool that securely monitors your work and nonwork activities throughout the day to give you a clearer picture of how you are really spending your time. How much time are you spending on social media? Emailing? Calling clients? Prospecting? Identifying areas where your productivity could improve can be the first step toward increasing your efficiency and, by extension, your business.

With Rescue Time, you can get an overview of your daily activities, set goals for yourself, and receive weekly detailed reports and productivity scores that summarize what you actually spent time on, not what you intended to do.

The basic plan, Rescue Time Lite, is free, but the premium features are very affordable at $4.50/month or $36/year and are worth considering.

Premium features include:

  • "Offline" time tracking to identify any activities done away from your computer.
  • Website blocking to set a block for any distracting websites for a period of time.
  • Daily goal alerts.
  • More detailed reporting.

Visit www.rescuetime.com to learn more or to sign up for your 14-day free trial of the premium plan today.
