Productivity tip - job with constant short waiting times...?
(I am not quite sure which category is best suited for this question... but here it is:)
In my current job, I have to carry out a large number of operations on a computer, each of which takes ~20 seconds to 1 minute. These are to be carried out consecutively and require my attention in between, i.e. I cannot simply automate them and leave them to run. However, I end up wasting a lot of time because I don't know what to do during all those short waiting times, so either I get immensely bored, or I start doing something else and end up forgetting where I was at.
Does anyone have a tip for efficiently dealing with this kind of task?

Set your cellphone alarm in between tasks? 🥴 If you know the wait time.
It's a lifesaver.
