Check This Out!

Trying to get more done? Maybe this little trick will help you. I don't know about you, but sitting too long typing get me so stiff, I can hardly move. I read an article that reported we need to move around more. Even for just a few minutes, do a few stretches, get a drink.

So, I decided to pull a trick out of Kyle's playbook and set a timer for 1 hour to get me up and moving! Remember setting the timer for writing content in training?

This accomplished more than I thought it would. Not only do I get up and moving more often, but I also am more aware of how productive, or non- productive I am. My aha moment.

How Cool Is That?

This has taken on a huge importance when trying to get things done for my website and for keeping in touch with everyone here at WA. Now, that has been hard! I apoligize everyone.

Just By Setting A Timer?

Amazingly, I can now keep track of my goals on a shorter term basis, and I stay focused on the task at hand. I came to realize, that I was sitting in front of the keyboard, without producing any valueable content. But, when the timer alarm goes off, It snaps me back into reality!

Moving around more, even for a few minutes gets the blood flowing again, and my productivity has gone through the roof! I have accomplished more this month since I joined the SAC than I ever thought possible! Thanks to the training and the great support from a great community!

Just one more testiment to the power of the hands on training platform here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Ok, there you have it! Try setting a timer (with an alarm) to keep you on track and moving! Who knows, maybe it will increase your productivity! Just thought I would share this with everyone, I hope it helps!

Ok, back to work now.

To Our Success!

What a good idea! I might have to try that. I sit here and forget about time; end up sitting half the day, which is not good. Timer, here I come.

Exactly,Fran...or should I say Ambassador Fran! Congrats to You!

I do the same and that little timer brings me back and breaks up my day into more productive chunks. Good little helper!

Hi Chas,
your post is great. I have not thought of the timer,(now I will), but
because I am constantly working on 2 or 3 things at a time, other business things, when I get really into my writing, I find sometimes 2 or 3 hours have passed. When that happens, I get up and go do something around the house, or leave for an appt. something to break up the strain I have put on my brain that morning or afternoon.

The timer, is definitely a great thing, I will start using

Thanks Carla, I never ever dreamed something so simple would help, but it does. I am like you, I get lost in research or distracted, and the timer goes off. Works great for me!
