    It means to try to be as fast as possible when doing something, so that the deadline is met, right?

    For example, if you have until 5:00 to complete a project, and you finish it by 4:58, someone might say to you "Well, you just managed to beat the clock!"



    "Beat the Clock" is also a great song by one of my favorite bands, Sparks. YouTube - Sparks - Beat The Clock

    A Sparks fan? Me too. Voice, tunes, wit, great couplets and a tacky moustache- wonderful.
