Yes sure. In that time many valuable things take place. But time is
more or less fixed per week or per month and is never as accurate.

Do you track that time of work with Emacs?

OK so you observe when doing task A how long time you spend in task A,
so that after 100 tasks you can find out where you spent most of time.

The tasks I create are normally delegated to others on distance and I
could not possible see what they do and how, if they really work or
not so time tracking would be inaccurate statistics. By observation is
found where most time is spent for nothing (useless dwelling).
