What if I could provide you a method to manage your time that costs less than $5 and works with the twist of a wrist? Well, if you guessed a timer, you would be right!
The technique is to use a timer...the one on your microwave/stove/phone/counter...as a way to make sure you break away from whatever distracting task you may be caught up in so you can get on to (another) pressing event.
Now, this approach does not need to be limited to being sure you get out the door in time. Use a timer to set limits on Internet research, alert you so you can be prepared for an appointment that is about to occur, remind you to make that phone call you have been dreading, or being sure you leave work on time to get home for a family dinner. Or even that it is time to put down the Sudoku book!
A quick and easy technique. What about it is not to love?
