Much can be and has been written about time management in the context of a PSF.
Yet time cannot be managed, nor a PSF run successfully, in my view unless how time is spent is tracked – accurately and comprehensively. A critical first step in running a PSF whether with 1 person or many is to ensure time spent is recorded.
In later posts I will discuss a number of other issues and matters related to time.
If your PSF is just 1 person initially then keeping a very detailed diary may be sufficient, or a spreadsheet.
As your PSF grows a more sophisticated approach will be needed.
