Egg Timer

GTD fanatics will 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.

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.
