We’ve all got them – long lists of to-dos that we were hoping to get done last week, last month or last year, but never got around to. What stops us from getting things done? Either we really don’t want to do it, or we find excuses to put off these tasks. Problem is that many of these tasks are important, either to our careers, our health, our families, or just our own well being. If you need help with getting motivated to get things done, give LazyHabit a try.
It doesn’t assume you are being lazy. It just knows that you’ve got lots on your plate, and it helps you organize and prioritize and provides reminders for you to get something done, each and every day. So, you’re not trying to get it all done at once, but work away at it one piece at a time.
Free to download the app lets you use the functions for a while and offers two different types of subscriptions for those who really want to take full advantage of the app. Straightaway, the app will ask if you’ve got 15 minutes to spare. Click YES and then you will be prompted to setup your first task. You are taken to a list of task recipes. These recipes range from Pre Routines, to help clear you for productivity, to a whole list of things you may have to get done. The following is sampling of them:
- Self Improvement
- House Care
- Family & Social
- And so much more
Each category breaks down into individual tasks, each with their own recipe. For instance, the Starting Ritual has actions like “Open a music player app,” “Block phone distractions,” “Stretch neck and shoulders”. Each one guides you through steps and times them so you do enough of each step to make a difference.
Now, to start using the app productively you will need to create some Routines. This is easy to do and you will get prompts from the app on what’s needed. Once you create one or more Routines, they can be scheduled. Go to the Schedule area of the app.
Routines you like can also be saved from the Explore area, and they will be available to you when you build different schedules. One nice feature of the app is that some of the prebuilt routines recognize other apps you may have and offer them as suggestions from within the routine, like a music player or drawing app.
This app definitely lays all of the necessary steps you may need to get going on one or more tasks you want to accomplish. Because you build out the steps required and actions needed and the app then walks you through each step, you have no choice but to get it done!
