The day whizzed past. The day went on forever. You completed your “To Do” list with plenty of time to spare. You toiled all day and achieved nothing. Despite the fact that every day has the same 24 hours, our sense of how much time we have changes all the time. If you can’t figure out where the time goes in your day, try placing yourself under the stopwatch for one day. “The stopwatch doesn’t lie,” I call this exercise. The purpose is to utilise an objective metric to determine how you actually spend your time.
The only equipment required for this experiment are a timer, a pen, and some paper. Begin by selecting one thing from your “To Do” list to focus on that day. It may be planning a presentation, creating a proposal, organising information, or anything else that demands concentrated, focused attention. Start the clock when you begin working on the job. Stop the clock the moment you become distracted and lose focus. Make a note of how much time you spent on the assignment. This should be done every time you stop and start the project during the day. Anything that disrupts your attention requires you to pause the clock, such as answering the phone, reading email, responding to a crying child, or simply daydreaming at your desk. At the conclusion of the day, total the time you spent on the assigned assignment.
What was the outcome? Were you surprised by how little time you really spent on this stated essential task? How often were you interrupted? How much time did you devote to distractions? Did the continual stopping and starting of the clock make you dizzy?
