I have to, but I don’t have to

I have to, but I don’t have to

You know how at work you have to do the things you don’t necessarily want to do, regardless of whether you feel like doing them or not? Not so at home. At home you can afford to postpone a task, sometimes indefinitely, if you can’t be bothered doing it when it is scheduled.

Even if you were the one who’d scheduled the task, perhaps especially then, it’s too easy to choose to do it ‘tomorrow’ or ‘next week’ or ‘as soon as’, etc. – hey, who’s going to fire you? The boss said you can have a day off 😉

However, unless you’re aspiring to a career in slothdome, or working diligently for that elusive Couch Potato Of The Year award, you’ll need to get to that task sooner, rather than later. And that’s why you need a nag.

No, not this guy. I mean you need a nagging process. Something that will gently but persistently remind you of the commitment you’ve made. Otherwise you’ll just go

 

 

 

The nagging process needs to be gentle enough not to aggravate you, but persistent enough to get you to do whatever it is you don’t want to do. It’s a delicate balance to achieve.

Dwel Tasks achieves this balance with a combination of home page reminder bubbles: red, for due or overdue, orange for due tomorrow and green for due soon

and the tasks increasingly growing in size, the longer they stay overdue:

Here’s what it looks like on your phone:


Conclusion: Dwel Tasks is an essential tool for household maintenance and kicking you own posterior – in other words, the chores are easier with Dwel.
