Better than a calendar

Calendars were not build for students because they don’t let you plan when you’ll get each task done. Shovel does.

To-do lists are broken

What is Timeboxing?

Timeboxing time blocking tasks
In a recent study, timeboxing was named the most useful productivity “hack” and it is how Bill Gates and Elon Musk organize their busy schedules.
Simply put, it means assigning individual tasks into your calendar for specific durations of time.

Benefits of Timeboxing

  • Single-Tasking: Opposite of Multi-Tasking will help you focus on one task at a time to ultimately accomplish more.
  • Prioritizing: By timeboxing when you’ll do each task, you naturally need to prioritize what you’ll do first.
  • Eliminates Distraction: If something is on your calendar, you are way less likely to be doing other things.
  • Gives you confidence to get things done: If you estimate a task and plan when you’ll work on it, you know you’ll have enough time to get it done

Calendar + Task-List as ONE

In Shovel, you have all your tasks organized right next to your calendar, and you can plan exactly what task you will work on, when, and for how long.
You can plan each task into multiple study times, and if you don’t work on a task when you planned to, Shovel will remind you to re-plan!
