Luxembourg City, Luxembourg – publicspace.net today is please to announce version 1.35 of Vitamin-R, its productivity tool for creative professionals. Vitamin-R is a collection of tools and techniques designed to overcome the biggest productivity challenges facing today’s creative professionals: managing attention and maintaining motivation.
This latest version adds innovative productivity and concentration level charting abilities that allow users to detect patterns in their work habits. Gaining a better understanding of your individual work habits and concentration levels allows you to detect obstacles to your productivity, find your natural weekly rhythm, provide an objective evaluation of the effect that longer work hours have on your ability to concentrate and much more besides. Leveraging these insights provides immediate and tangible benefits by allowing you to eliminate friction, remove productivity roadblocks and re-organize your work habits to better suit your individual rhythms, thus creating a more smoother, more productive work experience for yourself.
Vitamin-R breaks down large, vaguely defined tasks into a series of short “time slices” of between 10 and 30 minutes, each with specific, easily reachable and actionable objectives. The objective, time frame, concentration level and completion status of each time slice is logged automatically to the user log. Furthermore, the Vitamin-R Log Book also maintain hyperlinks to tasks in Cultured Code’s Things and OmniGroup’s OmniFocus to do list managers.
During a time slice Vitamin-R keeps you focused on accomplishing only this one objective and provides you with mechanisms for dealing with interruptions, poor concentration, etc.
Vitamin-R concentrates on getting started which allows you to break through the resistance of procrastination and creates a positive feedback loop of small achievements that get you closer to your ultimate aims. This greatly reduces the stress caused by looming deadlines and a lack of a clear direction, thus enabling you to enjoy guilt-free breaks in which you can pursue other interests.
Vitamin-R provides you with the “Now & Later Board”, complete with FastType magic, to give you a place to quickly dump all those things that go through your head and allows to get back to the task at hand.
While Vitamin-R assists you in getting on with your work, it also keeps a customizable record of your progress that can help you detect positive, os well as negative work patterns thus allowing you find the way that suits you best.
Vitamin-R plugs into your life rather than trying to take it over. You can use it occasionally to overcome procrastination or mental blocks or re-organize your entire working life around the concepts that it embodies. It integrates with rather than trying to replace traditional to-do list managers, such as Things or OmniFocus.
