If CC builds it into the product and process, they will come. It's the best way to track what you did on a particular day.
I could not agree more! I have not used the journal in a long time. I am required to document my time spent on various projects for budget purposes, and this is how I must complete my time card for work. because the journal is not part of CC, I "cheat" and simply use my calendar and schedule "appointments" for the various projects i work. This way I can see when I worked on what project, went to meetings, etc.. so I can use my calendar to complete my time card. if CC integrated the journal, then I am sure it would be better suited for this purpose.
I know there are many people that also must track their time on projects based on budgets. So this is quite important in my opinion.
On a side note relating to Deva's post, I don't work for a lawyer or anything. I work for a publisher. But many companies not concerned with "billable hours" like doctors and lawyers still track work relating to the budget of a particular project, like me.
