Have you seen Mr. Robot? You know the leader of the Dark Army who allots a certain number of minutes per appointment and sets an alert for each minute that passes? #goals amirite?
In the freelance world I’m accountable for my own schedule and workflow, so I can be maniacal about time. Maybe not Dark Army leader level, but I check it around 800x a day, which is why my phone can be more distracting than helpful. I’ll look at it for the time, but then there’s an Instagram notification so I check that real quick, and it reminds me of someone I forgot to text, so a quick hey hello turns into recommending an article that I, of course, have to bookmark to read later, and then oh crap, back to work! Five minutes later…wait, what time was it again? This is where a watch comes in handy.
