Return of the Wimiki

No, the Wimiki is not the mediocre-ish 3rd installment of an otherwise great 9 part series that was cruelly shortened to 6 parts because George Lucas is a lazy lazy man.

No! Wimiki is the awesome downloadable software that brings Simpleology to your desktop.

Short history: it was here. it was so-so. it was gone. Now it’s back and is ready to topple the evil empire make you even more productive than before.

And … It now works on both Windows and Mac.

(Take that George Lucas! Do your fancy new Blu-ray discs work on a Mac? OK. Well, nevermind. This was not the comment you’re looking for. We can go on about our business.)

How is that possible, you ask? How can one be more productive than the average Simpleology user? Isn’t that like breaking the laws of physics or something?

Good question. Inspired by CERN’s discovery last week that faster-than-light motion is possible, we have decided to break the Simpleology-barrier and make you even faster than before.

Let’s break it down …

The Wimiki
(available to Simpleology Pro and Elite members)

What does it do?

First, it brings Simpleology to your Windows or Mac desktop.

You can access your Daily Targets … Drop items into the Dream Catcher … Stuff like that. It’s not meant to replace Simpleology on the web (you still do “Start My Day” on the web), but rather to extend it and enhance it.

Next, it adds two new productivity-boosting tools to your arsenal:

  • Alarms

    These are simple alarms to remind you of things throughout your day. These aren’t meant as a replacement for your calendar, but rather to remind you to perform good habits.

  • Routines

    Many people find that they work best when they break up their work into “sprints” of varying lengths of time with short breaks in between. During those breaks, it’s often useful to do things to maintain your health – like drink water, get up and stretch, do some brain exercise, etc …

Because everyone is different, Wimiki is totally customizable to suit your situation. You want 30 minute work sprints and 5 minute breaks where you drink water? You got it. You want 50 minute work sprints and 10 minute breaks where you watch your favorite Bruce Lee clip for motivation? You can do that, too. It’s all up to you.

Why should we care?

Because we are our habits. Little by little, the way we spend our time defines who we are. We don’t see it in the moment, but when we look back on years of our lives, we can see that the way we spent our time determined who are we right now.

Wouldn’t it be a good idea to get in control of that process to determine who we’ll be in the future?

It’s one thing to say “change your habits” but how?

A coach wouldn’t hurt.

No, not the “I took a two day course in life coaching” sorta coach …

But the real kind …

No, nothing can replace a real coach with real credibility and conscientious tough love. But those guys are tough to find.

Is Wimiki the next best thing? Well, it’s software. It will stay on you. The motivation has to come from you. Sorry, there’s no way around that. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not telling you the truth. But sometimes a little nudge from time to time can make all the difference.
