Thanks for this. I’m never late to an appointment or something that involves someone else’s time, but often tell my wife “I’ve gotta go do ‘X’, I’ll be back in 10 minutes,” but it then takes me 30. If there’s a deadline involved (we need to leave at a certain time), I’m much better at sticking to the 10 minutes, but the task ends up not getting as complete as I want.

My biggest Time Blindness is when I have an hour or two in between work meetings, and get hyper focused on a task. While reading what you’ve shared, I decided I need a coo-coo clock or grandfather clock in my office that chimes periodically. I haven’t decided on the timeframe yet, of 15, 30, or 60 minutes. Maybe I need one that can be adjusted. Maybe it will help teach me how much time is passing. Maybe it’ll work, maybe it won’t, but it can’t hurt to try!

Good job meeting your own time goal this week!
