Getting Things Done fanatics might appreciate this. This timer keeps me on task when I am pursuing one of my thousands of disparate interests. The idea is, work for a limited amount of time and once the timer rings, move on to the next thing in your to do list. This is also known as the Pomodoro technique.
Of course this never works. Instead, I become embroiled in whatever-it-is I’m working on, ignore the alarm when it goes off, and four hours later I’ve taken apart my digital camera with a screwdriver and meticulously photographed each piece and uploaded it to Flickr.
A must-have for the man with too much time on his hands.
