Time can be on your side

Timing is everything, especially when balancing daily tasks in your practice. Here are some online timer tools to help you stay on track, assign time to certain tasks, and avoid missing appointments and other short-term deadlines:

  • Google: Head to the homepage and enter "timer [desired] minutes", then click start to begin the countdown. The countdown will be visible on your screen, although you must have speakers or headphones turned on to hear the alarm.
  • Egg Timer: Enter a specific desired time, or use one of the special timers (pomodoro: 25 minutes of work, 5 minutes rest), or set a countdown to a specific date and/or time.
  • Online Stopwatch : A simple countdown timer with settings ranging from one second to one week.
  • The Time Now: Offers various timers, a stopwatch, a countdown clock, as well as a date-to-date calculator and time zone convertors.
