Invest In A Timer

Most of us are truly awful at estimating how long we're spending on individual tasks. We're equally awful at knowing when "fifteen minutes" is up or at waiting the full time when instructions say "hold down the button for at least 30 seconds." Those are reasons to invest in a timer.

There are lots to choose from. I use a simple digital kitchen timer that counts up and counts down and has an alarm. I got it at Radio Shack for about ten bucks. There are free timer programs online and others that cost money. They're a small investment that can make you far more effective.
