Thanks for that idea Shawn. I've reframed from commenting on these types of threads.
For myself, I used the motivator when I was starting SFQ. Especially for the morning exercises, which I was doing in silence. It's important to me to not be Late starting the family going, in the morning. It creates too much stress.
I found that after about 4 uses I would naturally end my morning meditations before the motivator would go off. Since then, if time is an issue, I check my watch, decide when I want to end, state that the time in between is for me and do my meditation. I trust myself for when to transition from one exercise to another. They don't get equal time. Some even get skipped sometimes. However, I don't worry about when to stop and I've yet to be disappointed. If that does happen I will trust that was important to me to spend the extra time in meditation.
However, I can see how the Motivator would be very useful when working with a group, and not just by yourself.
You are perfection,
