Counting Down The Time Left In The Lineup
Using a count down timer to help you manage your time is not a new idea. BUT in a program last week I was amazed at how many people saw real value in the idea. Like many time management strategies, we forget them over time, or don't have need of them as much in different seasons of our work or life.
The value of the timer can not be overstated. It forces you to give a focused amount of time to a project or idea and reach some level of completion before the time runs out. The real strength is that the decreasing time acts as a constant course correction, challenging you to re prioritize often during the time period. And it serves as a frequent reminder of how precious time goes by so quickly.
We wouldn't want you to complain that you "don't have time" to improve your circus.
