Why do you need Focus?

Minor distractions have huge impacts on productivity. A notification here, a popup there—modern social media sucks us in. What started as 5 minutes turns into 50 minutes. This isn't quality time we're doing something we enjoy. We're procrastinating with endless digital distractions.

When we work and play on the same computers—it's like trying to diet with an open container of cookies right next to you. It doesn't work!

What we need, is Focus. We need some boundaries. We need to put the cookies in the cupboard.

Focus puts your digital cookies in a cupboard with a timed lock, so you can take a break and come back to them—but when you're trying to be productive, they're unavailable and out of the way.
