Count down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to a specific time. The Countdown can include all days and all hours, or just specific days (e.g. weekends) and specific hours. You can count down standard work hours (9-5) left until the start of the weekend, the start time of a favorite TV show, weekend days until tax time, or hours of football practice left in the season.
Have an non-traditional work schedule? The countdown can count those hours too! Just select the custom hours option under "What type of hours should be included in the countdown?". A table will appear including every hour for each day of the week. Select which hours you wish to include or exclude by clicking on the respective hour box. Hours corresponding with blue boxes are included in the countdown, those corresponding with colorless boxes are excluded.
This countdown can be a useful motivational tool. Rather than think of deadlines in terms of weeks (which can lead to procrastination), you can find out exactly how many free hours left you have before a deadline. As a working parent who tries to squeeze in extra hours around the kids' schedule, I find knowing exactly how much "free" time I have left in a week useful for planning purposes.
