Read Dr. Payden's story and try her Ten-Minute Tidy with your Time Timer at home!

By Dr. Darnita L. Payden: 

Say goodbye to stopwatches and kitchen timers -- and hello the Time Timer! What an awesome, deceptively simple time management tool. I've been using two different sizes ~ the 3" and the 12".

Because I always use a product before I ask my clients to trust me about its usefulness or effectiveness, I spent three months discovering how many ways I could use the Time Timer in my professional and personal daily life.

Professionally, I use the 3" and 12" Time Timer for:

  • Timing my free telephone consultations with prospective clients.
  • Helping me stay on track in meetings.
  • Delivering presentations.  It sure beats a sign held up in the back of the room with a minute countdown!
  • It's great in helping manage my time on the computer, especially while checking and responding to emails and checking social media. Set it for 30 minutes and go!!
