Ducks 'n a Row: Use a Timer

Use a Timer

 A Kitchen Timer is Your Best Friend!

Using a timer may seem trivial but, let me tell you, it's powerful!

People who struggle with organization are actually perfectionists at heart.  Have you ever taken on a task that should take just 5 minutes, only to find that an hour later you got caught up in a whole different thing and that 5-minute task never got done?  Using a timer will keep you on track.

Get a food timer, set it for the amount of time that you want to spend on a project and, when it rings, STOP!  Your timer keeps you accountable,  makes you more productive and gives you permission to stop in the midst, if need be.  Ding!  Time's up!
