Here’s a mini business tip to start off our new Quick Win year.
[QW7] Two words for ya: kitchen timer!
This is one of those “Why didn’t I think of this?” no-brainers that hadn’t occurred to me.
I ran into a non-tech buddy and grumbled:
“I missed a webinar because
my iPad wasn’t in my office. I didn’t
hear the meeting reminder.”
If you set timers on a mobile device, you’ve probably been in this situation.
You lay it down somewhere, and the alert chime does you no good.
My friend rolled her eyes ( just a teensy bit 🙂 ), looked at me, and asked:
“Do you have a kitchen timer you can keep in your office?”
Oh. Well. I do now.
It’s a tiny, flat, digital gadget that operates … seemingly forever … on a AAA battery.
It provides a 10-minute warning to 0:00, and the magnet on the back keeps it handy on a filing cabinet or other metallic surface (not on my computer, of course!).
Sometimes, the best solution is low-tech!
So, there we go! I hope you’ll have your own tiny not-so-tech helper soon.
