Why I’m loving …. Momentum app

Tags : 

I was tipped off about the Momentum app thanks to the weekly email from Tim Ferris.

It’s works of a very basic principle – guilt.

Install and when you open a new tab in Chrome (presumably to waste time noodling around on Facebook) a full page picture appears asking for your name, email and “What is your main focus for today?”.

Complete these simple requests and each time you open a new tab you will see a full screen version of this.

Nice huh? it’s a different background and quote each time, but it’s basically reminding you that you have stuff to do. In a pretty font.

Of course you can move onto your original destination but not without a pang in the old guilt-gland.

"I’ve enjoyed working with Caroline on a data visualisation project for a complex £1.5m government funded programme running across Birmingham and Leicester. It’s been a high pressure programme with tough targets to meet, so finding the time to collect and make sense of all the data, from a range of sources, has been difficult. With Caroline’s help we managed to prioritise the key information and she then presented it in a clear, easy to grasp manner. Just what we needed. I found her dedicated, easy to work with and very fair on pricing. I would happily work with her again and I commend her and her work to you" Dave Conroy, Programme Manager, Timebank
