  I suppose you talk about estimated efforts. I also have noticed that I work better if I have defined them, but it is very easy to miss them and work on a task more time than planned.
  An easy improvement would be to show at the mode line not only how much time you have worked on the current task but also the remaining time according to your effort estimate. And if it comes to 0, highlight it noticeably.

  Other useful things to show would be the *total* elapsed time (not only the elapsed time of the last C-c C-x C-i) or directly the effort estimate (instead of the remaining time, the total time).

  And as you say, an alarm would be useful.
