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.
