I was talking with Janell about productivity, and I told her that I needed a timer to keep track of my work during the day. I was thinking that I needed to use an egg timer to focus myself on one task. Then I got to thinking about how cool it would be to have an egg timer on my computer.
The idea is to set the timer to a certain amount of time and get working on something for that amount of time. When the time is up and the alarm sounds, I can feel free to focus on something else. I think having a timer like this would help me with my time management. (I tend get distracted a lot during the day).
Anyway, so I began working on a countdown timer in flash, and I have finished it. I’ve put up a special page specifically for the timer. It can work in the background while you are on the computer or reading or whatever else you need to do.
Anyway, I hope it helps me get work done, and I hope it can help some other people as well. If you use it, please let me know in the comments. Thanks. Please feel free to leave suggestions to make it better, too.
I will never make money blogging. Although making money would be great, it’s a good thing it’s not the purpose of this blog.
Besides, I just don’t have it in me. Suzie over at abundance highway asks a great question about how many topics should be covered in a blog. It seems that many people who have made lots of money on their blogs say to stick to one topic and write about it constantly.
In case you’re watching March Madness and was wondering, I’m playing in a bracket challenge over at Youth Ministry Exchange.
My final four are Duke, North Carolina, Texas, and Kansas. Of course, I’ve got Duke winning the national championship. I always have problems with fantasy things when I pick with my heart instead of my head. Duke’s my team, so I have to pick them to go all the way. They have a chance, even after tonight’s horrible game.
I’m watching the tournament online with March Madness on Demand. It’s a great way to watch the games. You get all the games for free, so check it out.
