Out of sight, out of mind. This sentence explains the concept behind this little trick that will do wonders to your eveyday experience at work. 😀
If you are like me who faces the monitor for almost 8 hours straight (and even more ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ), a day at work seems soooo long. I tend to always check on the pc clock, which is just a blink away, and be hugely amazed how 9:05AM ticks so long to become 9:30AM.
But I found a solution for this – totally hide the clock from the task bar. 😀
To do this, right-click on the time, then choose Customize notification icons.
Click on Turn system icons on and off.
Set the Clock to Off and click OK.
It may feel awkward not to see the clock there but you’ll get used to it. As for me, during the following days that came after I did this, lunch time came faster than I expected. Before I knew it, everyone was packing for home already. I even ended up staying for a couple of hours more because I was so absorbed on my tasks.
Works like a charm, right? 😀
Actually, I just copied this from a colleague. I was looking at her workspace one day and I was amused that there was no clock on the taskbar. And this is the same teammate who always goes home after everyone else did. I just found out her secret! Hehehe.
