Welcome to Bevan's Focal Point page!
This is what your Focal Point page will look like (with your own goal of course!).
Bevan's goal for the year is to double his income as a blogger. He has installed the browser extension, so he sees this page whenever he opens a new tab in Chrome.
Have a look around! For more info, hover over the icons at the top of the page or click the icons.
Stay on track with Smart Reminders
We all need a reminder now and then.
Focal Point reminds you when you haven't checked in or used a feature in awhile. For example, if we haven't registered activity towards a subgoal or haven't journaled in a few days.
Stick with the programWhat is the browser extension?
The browser extension makes Focal Point your new "home page". It simply opens Focal Point in every new browser window on Chrome. Constant, passive exposure to Focal Point increases your chances of staying on track.Can I use Focal Point without the browser extension?
Yes, but installing the extension is highly recommended. Automating your focus is an important part of the Focal Point system.Will the browser extension read my browsing history?
No. When you install the extension, Chrome will alert you that the extension will be able to "Read your browsing history." Rest assured that your browsing history is never recorded or read. That permission is required because the URL of the current tab must be overwritten. The extension only redirects new tabs to Focal Point.

Stay on track with subgoals
Planning is critical to success. Create intermediate goals throughout the year. This will help you measure your progress and stay on track.

Why does the Brainstorm game ask for 20 questions?
The Brainstorm game, one of the main tools on this site, asks you questions designed to get your subconscious mind focused on achieving your goal. It asks you to answer a question 20 times in order to push you to think deeply about your goal. This primes your mind to find solutions to goal-related obstacles throughout the day.
It's hard to come up with 20 answers, but the benefit lies in that effort. Playing this game regularly will greatly increase how much you think about a goal, and therefore your likelihood of achieving it.
