workspace wednesday | time’s up
You guys, I think I may have found the secret to getting things done: a timer! Yesterday as my to-do list continued to grow and my productivity began to plummet, I decided to break down each task into 15 minute increments and focus, focus, focus. Before I knew it, I was checking items off my list and wondering why the heck I hadn’t tried this sooner! There’s something about a ticking timer that makes any task feel more like an exciting game than a monotonous job. And I like it.
What do you do to trick yourself into getting things done?

Wonderful idea! Every day I think to myself I MUST be more productive, perhaps this is the answer I’ve been looking for! x
A timer is the only way I get anything done. I take frequent breaks from tedious tasks and before I know it, I am done. It feels great. I am glad to hear I am not the only one! 🙂
I totally do this too! I have 2 little ones at home as well, so I have sooooo many reasons to be unproductive! The timer really just helps me zone in on accomplishing something!
I do that too! For pretty much everything. I swear my productivity doubles.
I’ve used a timer before. For things around the house, I like to turn on a record, and see how much I can get done before one side is over! It makes it more fun and feels kind of like a game 🙂
I tried it this sunday for all the things I should have done a long time before. And WOW- how fast I was:-) Thank you for sharing!! Will use this method a lot more in the future:-)
