Work log

A work log is a type of document used for tracking daily/weekly work activities. It’s used to record both project deliverables and activities that may fall outside of your usual scope. A work log is usually quite detailed and somewhat unstructured; so it may potentially include a lot of noise. It’s purpose is to keep a record that can later be turned/summarized into other documents, such as a brag document.
