Ticking Clock

How Harold Lloyd Filmed Safety Last! | Chaplin-Keaton-Lloyd film locations  (and more)

But all the clocks in the city
Began to whirr and chime:
‘O let not Time deceive you,
You cannot conquer Time.
-W.H. Auden “As I Walked Out One Evening” poem

Struggling with motivation?

Add a ticking clock. It immediately gives you urgency and stakes.

Just like it does for actors and writers in a scene, it works wonders for anything you’re trying to accomplish. You gotta come through by a certain time or else.

P.S. – Check out this fantastic recording of Dylan Thomas reciting Auden’s “As I Walked Out One Evening” in its entirety.
