Playing Games With Time

“Understanding the value of time is understanding the true essence of life.” – Sunday Adelaja

If you bill based time, does everyone at your firm keep their time accurately?

Do partners play games with time? For example:

  • That will put us over budget, just post your time to admin.
  • Two managers were involved, let’s just record one manager’s time.
  • I was helping Joe with some questions on XXXX client. I’ll just put my time in training.

Tell your people to record all time and that it doesn’t mean you will actually bill the client for all the time. Recording time and billing the client are two separate things.

If you are playing these games, why are you billing by time in the first place??
