My previous article explaining what LifeHQ is and its origins is more than 8 months old.
That is a long time in startup world.
Since then I have crystalized and evolved the mission so I decided it is time to share the updated one.

What LifeHQ is all about

LifeHQ combines project management with productivity and self-improvement.
The LifeHQ flow is designed to help you in three areas:
1. Becoming better at doing your important work.
2. Organize the work that needs to get done.
3. Do the work more productively.

Self-improvement: Become more capable to do the work


Adopt healthy habits to have more energy, healthier body and mind that can accomplish more in less time.


Only helpful if you do it consistently. Record your daily activities, the parts that matter to your at
least, and then review your daily journals every week into the weekly journal.
This is the fastest way to detect if you are spinning in circles being busy and not going anywhere or you are on the right path. If you are moving forward, detect if you are moving in the right direction and with enough speed.

Project management: Organize the work

Everything can be set as a project, losing weight, building a business, starting a podcast, organizing an event.
Any goal that you have, once you make it concrete, becomes a project.

Organize your goals into projects with specific tasks, deadlines and documents.

Use the master list every night to plan the tasks for the next day.

Productivity: Do the work

In the morning get up and start working on the master list. Don’t waste any brain power on choosing what to do, everything is already planned.

Use the advanced pomodoro cycles to work in small focused work periods. Smaller periods are easier to guard against distractions and to get focused.

Who is it for

Obviously anyone can benefit from becoming better, getting organized and working faster.

But not everyone will do that. Some people are lazy and others can’t get out of their current routine. Others already have a system that’s working for them and that is also fine. It is important to know who your product is not for as well.

Two groups of people will benefit the most out of LifeHQ

Group 1: You have a system but it’s broken

Usually the ones that already have a system are people who know that productivity, organization matters and they have things going on in their lives.

Entrepreneurs and Freelancers

People working for themselves and trying to get their business off the ground.

They have tried a lot of productivity apps and tried to combine them into a system for managing their lives.

Probably have 3 or 4 different apps but end up using only the ones they have to, the ones with the actual work. All the habits, journals and pomodoro apps are forgotten after a few days, because they are nice-to-haves not must-haves.

LifeHQ solves this problem by luring you in with the project management module but once you’re there it is so easy to write your journal, check off your habits and spin a few work cycles.

Group 2: No system whatsoever

In this group I will put students but also anyone that is in a new environment and wants to prove him or herself.

Students at the beginning of their studies need to prove themselves in College or University.

Students at the end of their studies beginning their first job must prove themselves in the new workplace.

They will understand LifeHQ much easier because they have no previous bad patterns and experiences with productivity systems.

Proactive software

Proactive software goes beyond mere functionality.
It helps you become a power user as quickly as possible.
As a result you get the benefits that you signed up for much sooner: productivity, organization and consistency.
