    What a great concept and wise words!

    The idea of combining a clock with urgings from the great minds of history regarding seizing the moment and forgetting about procrastination is a remarkable one. This book by Jim McMullan is inspiring and fun as well. It's the kind of thing that one should buy in advance for holiday gifts. Why the hell would you wait?

    Excellent gift idea

    For those of us who need a push now and then, Jim McMullan has the right recipe: read some of the pithy phrases and quotes he provides, repeat them a few times... and then get something done and do it on time! 'There is nothing so fatal to character as half-finished tasks,' said former Bristish Prime Minister David Lloyd George (quoted in the book) and McMullan underscores it in his special 'Do It Now' chapter - the package is a book-clock combo with the clock face (it actually works, too!)reminding us what the book spells out in quoted comment after quoted comment: Live in the Moment, Do it Now!

    Reminder to Live in the NOW

    I purchased this for a friend, who needs the reminder to "Live in the NOW". Although he may never put batteries in the clock, he will keep it placed somewhere visible, and hopefully he will chuckle and remember to Live in the NOW.
    It's a cute purchase. A nice little reminder. A symbol that you are thinking of that person. It was a good price too.
    A book comes with the clock, which has many excellent reminders for positive influences in your life. A quote a day, a quote as needed, heck-read all of them in one sitting! Both items are worthwhile.

    A very neat little toy for procrastinators

    I found this on clearance at the local B&N and picked it up on a whim. It is what it says on the box: a working clock with all the numbers changed to "Now", accompanied by a little book of quotes about procrastination and time-wasting, organized into sections. The simplicity is a big part of the appeal - it just sits by my computer as a constant reminder that there is no time like the present.

    The only flaw is that the plastic that covers the clock face is really unappealing. I cut it away with a box cutter, and removing has made it much easier to see the clock without reflective glare from any light.

    It's not going to change your life 100%, but if you're in the habit of putting things off it can make a little difference by being there, telling you that time is passing and there is no reason you can't be doing something NOW.
