Track your tasks online with a stopwatch

Stopwatches can be found everywhere around us. Worth mentioning is its use in the sports industry.

The performance of athletes in track and field events are measured based on how fast it takes them to cross the finish line.

As a result, athletes train themselves to be better. They purchase new running shoes and undergo carefully curated training sessions to optimise their performance.

This training can involve a change in their lifestyle such as nutrition, the time that they wake up, and go to sleep, and even taking care of their mental health.

What this training does is to make them healthy both physically and mentally so that they can cross the finish line faster.

Most of us are not athlete. We work online or use the internet for our daily activities.

We can take some lessons from how the athletes improve their performance and apply it to how we use the internet.

The stopwatch is perfect for those cases when we do not know how long a task is going to take, but we will like to get it done faster.

How do you know that the new productivity app that you just purchased is actually helping you to get the task done faster or that your new approach to doing something online is more efficient?

You track it.

The stopwatch timer by ShareTXT was developed to help you track your tasks online and improve your efficiency.

A 1% increase in efficiency per day accumulates to an increase of 365% at the end of one year.

Think about that for a moment.

This means that you will be able to publish articles faster and have a huge increase in your bottom line because of an improvement in your productivity.

How it works

The stopwatch by ShareTXT is so easy to use. It requires just one step

  1. Click on "Start" to start the stopwatch
  2. After clicking on "Start" the timer begins to count upwards. Also two buttons appear

  • Pause/Resume - This is used to suspend the stopwatch until you feel the need to resume it. Maybe you are going for a bathroom break and you don't want the stopwatch to keep counting while you are away, you can simply pause it and resume it later when you get back, and continue from where you left off.
  • Reset - After the stopwatch starts counting you can stop it at any time this will reset the time back to zero at which point you will be able to start it again from the zero mark.

Benefits of stopwatches

We are living in the age of data, with the widespread adoption of IoT devices such as Google home, Alexa, Siri and all the smart devices the rate at which data will be collected will be unlike anything that we have ever experienced in history.

We also need to collect our own data. This helps us to boost our productivity and track how much we use these devices. A stopwatch goes a long way in helping us do this.

As a small business owner you handle everything about your business. A stopwatch timer helped you to track how much time you are spending on each part of your business.

The 80/20 rule applies here because you want to spend more time on the 20% of your activities that move your business forward and less time on 80% of the activities that do not help you as much.

Some benefits of stopwatches include

  • Helps you to get tasks done faster
  • Enables you to track how long it takes for a task to get done
