Get Ahead With Sprint Week (And a Special Time Timer Offer)!

We were honored when our friends at Google Ventures profiled Time Timer in their new book, Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days. They use the patented timer in Google Ventures innovation sessions to mark small chunks of time, giving an added sense of focus and urgency.

 

“It’s visible to everyone in the room in a way that no phone or iPad app could ever be,” author Jake Knapp explains. “And unlike with a traditional clock, no math is required to figure out how much time is remaining. When time is visible, it becomes very easy to understand and discuss.” 

 

We agree that the Time Timer is a great tool for businesses and innovation, which is why we encourage you to participate in Google Venture’s Sprint Week. Just plan a sprint, as described in the book, for the week of April 18-22. By signing up at this link, you’ll receive exclusive daily videos from the Sprint team in your inbox, along with access to an online Q&A with Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky. 

 

And don’t forget the Time Timer! To help celebrate the first Sprint Week, we are offering 25% off the Time Timer MOD Sprint Edition with the code SPRINTWEEK*. For instant Time Timer access before Sprint Week, download the Time Timer app

Why is multi-tasking a waste of time?

1. Our Senses Can't Handle It:

Have you ever answered your mobile while watching TV and eating popcorn? And how many times have you said: 'Yes... Uh huh... Yes..." without actually paying attention?

Both the television and the mobile demand our attention, and both demand that we use our sense of hearing. We just can't do it!

2. Stress:

Multi-tasking is also a stress response when we have to do many things – all important or urgent – at the same time.
