Focused Work: Focus Timer
Productivity and Utilities
"A simple, but valuable utility for creating timed focus sessions of productivity." - MacStories
"A tool that helps overcome that first step." - Knapsack
"Focused Work helps you stay on track better than ever" - iMore

Focused Work is a simple, flexible Focus Timer that helps you structure your time effectively.

Structure keeps you fresh and productive, so you can get more work done!

A key strength of Focused Work is creating timed focus sessions that break up tasks into smaller parts.

You can create sessions for tasks like studying, coding, and content writing, and structure them as follows;
· begin with a 5-minute Planning stage
· focus with a 50-minute Focused Work stage
· rest with a 10-minute Break stage
· focus with a 30-minute Focused Work stage

Focused Work encourages you to remain focused, be self-accountable, and complete productivity goals each day.
