Do you all consistently track your time during work hours? I feel like I do my best but somehow I still end up being short at the end, so I log it to non-chargeable. I work my minimum of 8, at least, but end up with 7 or less. I'm just not good at it or get sidetracked. Any suggestions to improve this? Also, would it be inappropriate to work more hours one day to make up for another day that you know you will be away from work for a couple of hours?
