Oftentimes I hear from our clients that there are so many things to do and so little time to do them. One of the things I find very helpful is to use a timer to set a specific amount of time to complete a task. It can be very effective in teaching you how to be more productive.
Using a neat device like this cube is a simple way to track your time. Turn it on its side and it will immediately start timing. When the time is up, a loud, unmistakable alarm will ring. Simply turn it back to its upright position to silence it. Try timing your phone calls, chores, meetings, cleaning, or any task that needs a time restriction.
