Set a timer

hour glassIf you tend to get lost down various rabbit holes, or lose track of time in general, then set a timer.

Set a timer to remind yourself to take a break.

Set a timer to remind you when you have to stop one activity to get ready for another.

Set a timer to manage the time you spend on the phone.

Set a timer when you want to goof off, so you don’t lose the whole day when you just meant to give yourself a brief break.

One of my most useful desk tools is a kitchen timer! It keeps me and my day on track. Give it a try!
