Watch the original Kickstarter video:
“Congrats on the amazing success of your project!! Your product is so needed in this hectic, distraction-heavy world (and it's very stylish as a bonus) so we're not at all surprised to see how much people love it (us included)! “ - Svetlana Z.
Millions of iron nanospheres
Each glass is filled with millions of solid iron nanospheres. These make the glasses unique and give them a wonderful visual effect as the spheres bounce chaotically around the glass. This also produces a wonderful white noise.
Hand blown artisan glass
Each Esington Glass is hand blown from a single piece of glass making each vessel unique. They are then quality checked for finish and filled by hand for accurate timing.
Soothing White Noise
Millions of iron nanospheres produce a soothing white noise for the first 15 seconds after turning over the glass. This activates your aural cue to start your sprint. Here's what it sounds like on different surfaces:
New: Stop time!
Our newest version of the glass comes with a magnetic stopper, so you can keep your place in the sprint.
How it Works: The Esington Method
The Esington Method uses the Esington Glass as the timer and boils down to 3 simple steps:
Turn off all distractions
Turn over the glass to activate the 3 cues
Work on a single task until your time runs out
The Esignton glass is designed to help you develop a timeboxing habit as quickly and easily as possible. It does this by giving you three powerful cues to train your initial habit:
This unique combination of cues was designed to lower the activation energy required to form the habit. High activation energy is the prime reason habits don’t stick (and why only 8% of people are successful in achieving their New Year's resolutions).
The Esington Method trains your brain to go into “hyperfocus” mode (also known as "flow") when the above cues are given. This gives you the ability to destroy procrastination with the simple action of turning over the glass. It's the famous "Click-Whirr" phenomenon Robert Cialdinii popularized in the book Influence.
The power of the Esington Method
You are setting up an ultra fast work/reward cycle. Once the 25 minutes are up, you are filled with a sense of accomplishment and rewarded with a break. A dopamine rush will ultimately cement the habit in place and change you fundamentally as a person.
Studies show periodic resting increases the quality, quantity and creativity of your work.
You destroy what’s known as Parkinson’s law, which states that people and organizations will fill up and use all of the available time given to a particular task. For example, if you’re told you have a week to write a report, it will likely take you an entire week to get it done. Once you implement timeboxing, since you are given so little time to “sprint”, you may finish that report in one or two sprints.
The Esington timer has a “soft stop”. There are no annoying bells or beeps to signal the end of your cycle. Sometimes, your focus can take you well beyond 25 minutes, and that’s ok (especially if working on lower-energy tasks like answering emails). You don’t want to lose a valuable train of thought. Just be sure to rest proportionally to the energy spent working.
