Home / 15minutes - a simple productivity tool

15minutes is a simple productivity tool I wrote.

One of productivity techniques is time boxing. Pomodoro technique is a similar idea.

Procrastination is avoiding work. To avoid procrastination you just have to start working.

One reason we avoid work is because the tasks seem big and overwhelming. Time boxing is a mental trick - instead of thinking about doing the whole task, we focus about working on a task for a fixed, short period of time.

To implement time boxing you need a timer which will alert you about the end of time boxing period.

Any timer will do - a physical timer, iPhone’s built-in clock etc.

I wrote a small application to do it, since most of my work is done on a computer. 15minutes is that application.
