Based on how you interact with each Frido, our wicked machines will decide what to show you and when.
With every swipe, a new chance of finding something you feel like doing.
Source: To do lists don’t work ⇲
It’s easier for us to make decisions and act when there are fewer choices from which to choose.
Looking at the 58 items on your to do list will either paralyze you or send you into default mode: checking email for an hour instead of doing real work
We don't want to overwhelm you with more options than you can handle. And we don't.
By presenting you with only one task at a time we aim to reduce the imminent anxiety coming from not knowing where to start.
When your list contains some tasks that are three minutes long and some that are 33 minutes, you’ll invariably focus on the shorter one for the psychological payoff and dopamine release that comes from crossing an item off your list.
The brain 🧠... such a rascal!
To keep you from falling into those traps, we wrote an algorithm that evens out the different kinds of tasks so you tackle not only the ones you want to but also the ones you have to.
to do lists don’t prevent you from choosing the most pleasant tasks over the most important (and often most difficult) ones because they lack “commitment devices” that lock you into a course of action that you might not otherwise choose.
Well, we are not a list, are we? 🕶
We don't just prevent you from doing only fun things, we also
force encourage you to work on the ones you are more resilient to.
