Beeminder task list as part of the AutoFocus system

If you’re a connoisseur of productivity porn then you probably already know about Mark Forster and his Get Everything Done blog. Or you might know his various time management books, the most well-known being “Do It Tomorrow”. He’s also the inventor of the AutoFocus system, which has been featured more than once on LifeHacker.

Forster has long advocated clarifying solid commitments as a core time management principle, so perhaps it should be no surprise that he has jumped on Beeminder with both feet. In fact, over the last several days he has written a series of articles and short posts about Beeminder. This has been a near watershed for us. There’s a decent chance that if you’re reading this now it’s because of Mark Forster!

We already believed that Beeminder was the everlasting secret to personal productivity. That’s why we quit our day jobs so we could try to change the world with it.
