    Tracking work

    Might seem like a basic question, or maybe I'm unorganized, but I'm really interested to know how you guys keep track of your work??

    Basically when i'm working on a project and as it starts growing, i start losing track of what I've done few days back and if i've to go back to the same problem and search for it... and sometimes, I end up getting confused and which really makes an impact on my productivity.

    Will appreciate your awaiting comments.

    Thanks.

    How old are you. As you get older, you forget what you did yesterday, but somehow stuff that you did 20 or 30 years ago is crystal clear.

    you need some kind of work tracking system like M$ team foundation server or a KANBAN board or some kind of ticketing system. document every work item. its the only way. I work on sizable projects and there is no other way to keep things straight when you have the vp and c levels with their army of 3 analysts and customer feedback bearing down on you,

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    I'm 38. Am I old enough when the signs you told me starts appearing?? I'll then accept that it obviously is nature and I can't do nothing about it

    Thanks Thrasymachus, sensible advice.

    It'll be interesting to see more answers about what methods different people use )
