Using A Timer


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My very favorite way to stay on top of clutter or get myself to work on a task I'd rather not is to use a timer. I set it for 15 min. & see how much I can get done during that time. After it goes off, I can either do it again or often do something else for 15 min that is more fun & then repeat again. It works!
