Using Focus

After signing up, you can create a set of tasks, remember, keep yours task as broad as you can. We will save the specifics for the subtasks. Some good examples of tasks include:

  • Clean the House
  • Study for Calculus Exam
  • Program that App

When you create your tasks, you don't just give a name to the task, you give an estimate of how many pomodoro's you believe that task/subtask will take you!

Once you have a good set of tasks, lets move onto subtasks. Subtasks are where you get specfic, some good examples of subtasks include:

  • Organize the kitchen cabnets
  • Learn integration by parts
  • Design a user interface

Great, you're ready to start tackling the list! I suggest you start with the subtasks, open up a task by clicking it. To start a pomodoro cycle, click the start button on the clock.
