As a creative entrepreneur and wedding photographer, I’m here for all the productivity and time management tools. Can ya relate to that?
Meet the workflow task timer 😍
Several years ago, I purchased a task timer just like this on Amazon, and I LOVE it! Thanks to Julie Paisley for originally sharing this gem. So, what is it?… A workflow task timer! You can choose what amount of time you want to set and then get to work! It’s a must-have for any creative entrepreneur.
If you know me, you know I’m all about staying on task, creating to-do lists (and checking things off!), maintaining an effective workflow, working smarter, and utilizing an organized workspace, so this is perfect for my personality type! Here’s a look at how I use it daily:
Let’s say I have emails to respond to, blog posts that need to be written, and sessions on my editing list… I will set the timer for 30 minutes and respond to emails. Once the timer goes off, I reset it and move to another task – say setting the task timer for 15 minutes to brainstorm blog post ideas. Then, setting the timer for another 30 minutes to edit “x” number of photos in that amount of time. The task timer is also great for virtual power hours or power hours that you’re having on your own!
I just have to say, this thing is genius and just so simple! I LOVE incorporating it into my daily workflow, and it helps keep me on task while working from home.
You guys, it is seriously the little things like this that make me smile!
