This or That feature how to guide

This powerful feature helps you manage your tasks more effectively by simplifying decision making. To enable this strategy, go to ☰ → Features/Strategies → This or That. Once enabled, you can use it by navigating to any list you want to work on. Click the three dots at the top right corner of the list and select "This or That" from the dropdown menu.

You will now be shown two tasks from the list. Choose the task you'd rather do by clicking on it, which will put you into super focus mode so you can work on that task.

Once you've finished, you will be shown two more tasks to pick from. While in this work mode, you can access the settings at the top right to change the wording of the prompt, making it more motivating and comfortable for you.

Why "This or That" works?

This feature is empowering because it simplifies decision-making by presenting you with only two options at a time, making it easier to focus and take action without feeling overwhelmed by the full list of tasks.

Each time you make a decision, it stimulates your prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain crucial for productivity. Think of this brain region like a muscle—the more you use it, the stronger it becomes. For individuals with ADHD or those prone to procrastination, strengthening the prefrontal cortex is essential.
