The Small Stuff — Like Time Tracking — Matters.
“Don’t sweat the small stuff” is an annoying platitude that has somehow managed to penetrate all parts of our lives: from your child’s little league team to your working lunch meetings. Ok, yes, it’s important not to get caught up in things. At the same time, when the “small stuff” doesn’t have a solid foundation, the “big stuff” often crumbles. Think: relationships.
We want to take away your pain.

Because time can be a pain.
Someone once said “Routine is worry’s sly assassin.” Seems pretty human. Do the same thing everyday, forget about the bigger picture. But read up on William James’ philosophy here. He was like “Humans love habit, they love it so much they are sometimes bound to it. So if you recognize them and try to do things differently, you might be happier.” Cool. Enough philosophy.
Time tracking: when it becomes an easy habit, you stop worrying about it. That’s what our free time calculator allows. It lets your employees track time worry-free, so they can make it part of their day and it doesn’t have to consume their time and stifle creativity.
But the core of Bric is sort of like William James and his ideas on habit. Businesses have been time tracking for years. We decided punching hours on a time card needs a little spice. So we gave time tracking a new purpose, and created our time tracking software. And guess what? With our software, employees can think about time tracking even less.
What else Bric can do for you . . .
Our software is centered around 3 ideas: project management, employee optimization, and time tracking.
Project management: We want our users to carry out project proposals with budgets and scopes backed by data. So that’s exactly what Bric does. We separate the different projects your agency is working on and keep track of times employees spend on each one. When you get a new project of a similar size and scope to an old one, you can make more accurate budget and timeline estimations.
Employee Optimization: With Bric, you can enter in how many hours every employee is supposed to work a week, and how many hours each project has left before it goes overtime. This prevents employees pulling out their hair working 10 extra hours every week, and from spinning in their office chairs to pass time.
Time tracking: Of course. How do we track time on Bric? Employees simply click the project du jour and BOOM the clock starts. When they’re done working on that project, they click out. Clock ends. More accurate hours. Less math for employees. More creativity. More project-centered work.

5 fun facts about time
As we said earlier, we at Bric spend a lot of time thinking about time. So we found some interesting facts of the matter to lighten the day. Here ya go.
- There is a global organization dedicated to time zone social justice. They represent people in places like Iceland, Alaska, and Norway who have to spend 20 hours in the dark sometimes. Turns out this, along with daylight savings, can mess with your heart health.
- One time the Soviet Union experimented with 5 and 6 day weeks instead of 7.
- 24 hours a day? Not quite, it’s just under. Earth gains about 3 milliseconds of time per rotation.
- Standardized time zones in the U.S. happened because the railroads demanded it in 1883.
- Most important: the movie “Wayne’s World” was filmed in 2 weeks. You can do anything you set your mind to.
Makes your time tracking seem easy, huh?
