My idea is an app that will help people who are poor at managing their free time be more productive--this includes those who are indecisive, undisciplined, and easily overwhelmed by decision making. It's a task randomizer that creates a schedule based on time alloted and a pool of pre-entered tasks.
It allows people to enter in side hobbies or mundane chores that are ongoing and assign them qualifiers such as:
- Activity type (e.g., routine cleaning, hobby/leisure, health, errands)
- Activity name (e.g., tidy room, sort mail, pay bills, push-ups, paint, knit, clean bathroom, read, work-out, watch a movie)
A person could then enter how much unscheduled free time they have and let the app randomize a schedule or pick a particular task for them--then gives them a timer to tell them when to stop and move to the next activity.
For example, if a person has 2 hours to kill, the app might say:
1 hour - tidy room
30 minutes - read
10 minutes - sort mail
20 minutes - research recipes
It is intended to take the edge off of decision-making, increase productive use of time, and discourage a person from wasting time by just idly surfing on Facebook or Youtube.
