Stay on track with Smart Reminders
We all need reminders now and then.
Focal Point reminds you (via the browser extension and email) when you haven't journaled or checked off your habits in awhile.
Focal Point Browser ExtensionWhat 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. To see the full code of the browser extension, click here.Prefer a third-party extension?
"Excellence is not an act, but a habit." -Aristotle
Want to start a new habit, or break an old one? This time-tested method makes it easier.
Simply define your daily habit ("Meditate for 15 minutes"), and click "Done" after completing it each day. You'll develop a chain of success that becomes hard to break.
You'll see your success rate over the last two weeks, and your current and longest streaks. Keep your streak going!

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.
