Colin ran around the office like a chicken without a head because he had so much to do and so little time to get it done. Mark stopped Colin in his tracks and offered to help him break down his tasks into manageable pieces. Colin had been excited and burst with energy at the thought of a solution to his mounting problems. Mark advised that he use a timer to dedicate 60 seconds to tear through small tasks and five minutes to barrel through larger chunks. Soon Colin went off to the races and arrived ahead of schedule thanks to the brilliant ideas shared with him. Colin felt elated and jumped for joy when he saw that he had inched closer to the finish line and could beat the timer and make his tasks disappear in the blink of an eye.
