About Focused Work: Focus Timer

"A simple, but valuable utility for creating timed focus sessions of productivity." - MacStories "Focused Work helps you stay on track better than ever" - iMore "A tool that helps overcome that first step." - Knapsack

Focused Work is a flexible Focus Timer that helps you stay productive and avoid burnout.

It’s purpose-built for people who struggle with focusing and structuring their time effectively.

Folks can create repeatable focus sessions that divide tasks into smaller parts, and structure them with Focused Work, Break, and Planning stages.

A task such as “Write the intro for Monday’s article” can be broken up into a three-part focus session; a 5-minute Planning stage to familiarise yourself with the task, a 50-minute Focused Work stage focused on writing the introduction, ending with a 10-minute Break stage to mentally refresh and reflect.

Focused Work encourages you to be self-accountable, avoid distractions, and create healthy productivity habits.
