Well, and how is all that helpful at all?

Of course, in an ideal world we'd be paid for the results, not for the
time.  But:

1. Welcome to the reality, this is not an ideal world.  I am being paid
for my time.  (And sometimes we really do not have a better option.  How
would you calculate a teacher's wage?)

2. Clocking in and out is the question of habit.  It does not really
take up a significant portion of my attention, especially with Ivy and
org-mru.  I've been doing it for years, and while I do sometimes forget
about it, an occasional error does not make the whole data useless.

3. Knowing where my time goes is the first step in optimizing it.
