Flow Cow is a productivity tool that promotes focus by making online distractions less attractive
This is an unusually powerful productivity service.
Flow Cow maintains your flow by tracking your time on the web and attaching a tiny cost that you decide to sites that aren't productive.
As focused attention becomes increasingly valuable in the modern world, the web poses a problem to all those who require it for their work: how to focus when faced with a constant stream of distractions?
Flow Cow is a pragmatic solution to this problem. Imagine if you actually disliked being distracted?
Designers have figured out how to tap into our basic instincts to keep us clicking. Fight back on a primordial level.
By assigning a small cost to time on the web, the attractiveness of the daily flood of distractions is undermined by one of your brain's most powerful heuristics: loss aversion. Loss aversion is so powerful that it doesn't take much to trigger it; even a few cents per minute is usually enough.
Flow Cow reinforces your online behavior immediately and continuously; wasted time is always on the clock. Productivity is boosted instantly and only improves as your brain eventually forgets about distracting sites completely.
Change the way you see the web.
