Task managers are great giving you a strategic view of everything you need to get done. When it comes to coaxing you into action, though, most systems leave you in the lurch. Sometimes, despite all that organization, laziness strikes.
Burstling steps in to crack the whip. Start with a two minute break to screw off before getting down to business. Burstling then times you for ten minutes while you make a dent in one of your tasks. After a burst of productive activity, it's break time again. The cycle continues until you finish your current task - then you're rewarded with an immediate break before moving to the next item on your list.
Plays well with others
Burstling doesn't care about projects, areas of responsibility, contexts or any of the other meta fuzz around your tasks - there are plenty of great apps to manage those things for you. Burstling is for what you're going to get done in the next hour or afternoon.
Though Burstling is focused, it's not uncooperative. Whether you're using a fancy GTD app or a simple text file to manage your to-dos, you can drag tasks right into Burstling.
