Flow Cow - Focus & Productivity
This is an unusually powerful productivity service. Flow Cow maintains your flow by tracking your time on the web and attaching a tiny cost that you decide to sites that aren't productive. As focused attention becomes increasingly valuable in the modern world, the web poses a problem to all those who require it for their work: how to focus when faced with a constant stream of distractions? Flow Cow is a pragmatic solution to this problem. Imagine if you actually disliked being distracted? Designers have figured out how to tap into our basic instincts to keep us clicking. Fight back on a primordial level. By assigning a small cost to time on the web, the attractiveness of the daily flood of distractions is undermined by one of your brain's most powerful heuristics: loss aversion. Loss aversion is so powerful that it doesn't take much to trigger it; even a few cents per minute is usually enough. Flow Cow reinforces your online behavior immediately and continuously; wasted time is always on the clock. Productivity is boosted instantly and only improves as your brain eventually forgets about distracting sites completely. Change the way you see the web.
