As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been using the Now Habit’s Unschedule to take more control over my time at work and at home. Still, sometimes I find myself getting distracted over things like e-mail. Who doesn’t, right? Well I really want to get more of my time back, so I needed something else to keep me focused.
Enter Flylady. Her focus is more on the home and family, but her method of using a timer to get things done in 15-minute increments works well for…well, just about anything. I started using a timer for my writing at work and at home, and I’m getting twice as much done as I did before I used one. Of course, this is a new habit I’m trying out, so I’ll let you know how it goes. But so far, so good.
And…my 15 minutes are up, so see you later.
