|1 hour talk (don't do this)|
Then I picked up an awesome piece of advice (I heard it from Kathleen Dollard):
Don't set the timer for the length of the talk. Set it for how long until the talk ends from now.So if the talk is one hour long, and it starts in 7 minutes, set the timer for 1:07 and then start it now.
|1 hour talk that starts in 7 minutes (do this!)|
Since I started doing this, I've never forgotten to start my timer.
