For the past 4 years or so, I’ve worked without ever having a clock in sight. I don’t wear a watch, I removed the clock from the menu bar of my computer, and I cover up any clocks I can’t remove. I realized that watching the clock, even subconsciously, is stressful. You’re always aware of the time ticking by, wondering if you’re getting enough done or if it’s time to eat lunch yet. But you can’t fully focus if part of your mind is keeping track of the time, so I decided to experiment by going clockless. Four years later, and there is no going back. Sure, sometimes I accidentally forget to eat lunch, or stay up until 3am when I meant to go to bed at 10pm, but I think of that as a feature, not a bug. If I was able to skip those things without noticing, I was probably in the zone, and 3 hours of zone time is equivalent to about 8 hours of fractured time, so it’s well worth the trade. via
Here’s a scary figure for you - 57% of consumers will abandon a site after only a 3 second wait. Where do you think they’re going? For a typical query to Google often thousands of relevant results are returned. There’s plenty of options available so there’s no real need to hang about when a page takes it’s time in getting you the content your interested in. If the top result is slow, we’ll likely just try result number two in the list. (Source)
