  1. Use a timer to get you started on something that feels overwhelming. Set it for 5 minutes to just get started.

  2. Use a timer to keep you moving. For example, if you want to clean several rooms in the house, set the timer for a 20 minute work session in each room.

  3. Use the timer to create a sense of urgency. Only allow yourself 45 minutes to work on or finish up a project.

  4. Use the timer to take a break. Set your timer for a 5 – 10 minute break several times a day.

  5. Use the timer to track your time use. Increase your time estimation skills by actually timing how long certain routine tasks really take. For example – do you know how long you really take in the bathroom? Time it and find out!
