If you’re at all like me, or maybe even more like me than I am myself, you tend to put your head down and work until you’re done and sometimes even longer. Nurses are used to working without breaks of any kind – lunch, restroom, water, etc. – and they carry this habit over into their legal nurse consulting businesses with pride and passion.
One of the benefits though of being a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is getting to take actual meal breaks sitting down, go to the restroom more than once a day and even be at home on holidays without fear of answering the phone and being called in to cover a short shift. But if you dropped by a successful CLNC® consultant’s home office, you’d find her head-down, hunched over her keyboard, furiously typing away creating work product for her attorney-clients, oblivious to the cries of her hungry spouse and children. My point – CLNC® consultants are a hard-working bunch who often, and easily, lose track of time. When you enjoy what you do it’s too easy to get lost in it.
Today’s Tech Tip remedies that. Whether you need a reminder to feed the pets or the family, get a fresh cup of coffee, stretch those hamstrings or an alarm to tell you when the work day ends, I’ve got the solution. Open a new tab on your web browser and navigate to Timer-Tab.com. There you can set an alarm for the time period of your choice (like 20 minutes) to tell you when to get up and move around. Or, if you have an important call with an attorney-client you can set an alarm to that specific time (3:30pm). There’s even a stopwatch function if you want to track how long you’re working on a particular project. Sure you could buy a clock – but isn’t this much more fun?
Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, follow this Tech Tip and you’ll never forget an appointment again!

P.S. Comment and share how you keep track of time when you’re working on your legal nurse consulting business.
