How buying a simple kitchen timer can significantly increase your productivity.
What would it mean to you if you were TWICE as productive as you are now?
Would you open that new business? Earn more? Take more time off?
There’s a simple $3 kitchen device that can DOUBLE your productivity the very first time you use it. That’s like having an extra 8 hours a day!
It’s called a kitchen timer and you may remember it as the white thing that chimed when your mom was cooking dinner. Trust me though when I tell you this simple device can double the quality time you spend doing productive things.
Most business owners have difficulty being personally productive. The day-to-day demands of running the business, coupled with interruptions from others, make personal productivity one more mountain for the business owner to climb in an already demanding workday.
When was the last time you put a consistent effort into planning, strategy and evaluation of your business without sacrificing your personal time?
The big problem is staying focused on the tasks at hand. Your mind wanders to other things and handling interruptions and, before you know it, you haven’t gotten anything done that you planned.
The kitchen timer helps you solve this problem in a highly effective way.
Take the kitchen timer and set it for a time that you will do NOTHING but work on the task at hand. For the period of time you set, commit your full attention to the task at hand and let it be your sole purpose on the planet for that period of time.
Simply going through the process of setting the timer signals to you and others that you will do nothing but work on the task at hand for the time you have allocated to it.
If you find your mind wandering, look at the timer to bring you back in focus. You’ll also find it very easy to avoid outside distractions. A big reason is that your mind already knows when the task we’ll end, making it much easier to focus.
Try it out and watch your productivity soar.
