Looking at a task list that’s a mile long is just plain depressing, and research has shown that people actually get less work accomplished when they feel bogged down by endless to-dos. That’s why LazyMeter was created. The idea behind the dead-simple to-do list application was to create a system that helped people focus, tracked their accomplishments, and ultimately led them to feel better about life at the end of the day.
If your favorite part about creating to-do lists is crossing off items when they’re complete, then you won’t be disappointed with LazyMeter. Start creating a to-do list by adding all the items you need to get done. Type in a sentence or a word about the task at hand and a date for when the task should be complete, then click the “plus” button to officially add the task to your to-do list—which LazyMeter calls a playlist. Everything you’ve got planned for the future will show up under your “pause list,” and you can click on the “stop list” to see everything that has been added to your playlist without a scheduled completion date. Click on the check box each time you accomplish a task, and you’ll see your list get shorter and shorter as the day goes on.
If you don’t complete a task on the day its due, no worries. LazyMeter will automatically reassign any uncompleted tasks for the next day, or you can remove the deadlines altogether and put the tasks back on your pause list until further notice. Checking out the LazyMeter scoreboard is a great way to see how much progress you’ve made in a given day and how much you’ve gotten done in a limited amount of time.
