I use a combination of methods – my work is basically either by phone or email, plus projects done on the computer and meetings at client sites.

Phone calls I track in an Excel spreadsheet I keep open on the computer. If I take calls while I am out I try to remember to put them into the spreadsheet (a flawed method I know and often fails).

Emails and projects done on the computer are tracked using software called Chrometa – it runs in the background and keeps tabs on everything I do on the computer. Sometimes the report indicates a scarily high amount of time on stupid internet surfing (hello Facebook) but at least I know to the minute how much time I spent working on that agreement for a client, or the spreadsheet used to work out wage rates. It also keeps track of how much time I spend on each email.

Meetings – Outlook tracks that to a certain extent
