GTD Timer 2015 out-of-the box supports Time Reporting, Pomodoro Technique, GTD Two Minute rule and much more...

GTD Two Minute rule: If the Next Action can be done in 2 minutes or less, do it when you first pick the item up. Even if that item is not a "high priority", because it takes longer to store and track any item than to deal with it the first time its in your head.
- David Allen, Getting Things Done
