All of my career and personal achievements was done in situation with zero pressure and zero stress, i even didn't have formal tasks or any external motivation.

Time tracking implements an assumption that employees stupid and lazy by default, so need to constantly micromanage them.
It all come from Taylorism or "scientific management", intended to be used for factory workers that mindlessly do 1-2 simple operations whole day long.
It's horribly wrong for software development or any complex/creative work.

My advice - update CV and start look for a better job.
