Imagine your bank account credits you $86,400 each morning. At the end of each day what is not used is gone forever. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off whatever you failed to invest into a good purpose as lost. Every second wasted is a dollar gone FOREVER. Poof. How much will you lose in your lifetime?
The WOLO Life reminds you that Time is Money, and to draw every single dollar, every single day.

Why the WOLO Life Reminder?
Have you ever:
- Procrastinated? "I don't really need to do it right now, I have time..."
- Failed to get a handle on time? "Wow it's 2016 already?"
- Settled for less? "I'm not ready to chase my dreams"
- Been distracted? "Web surfing, Social media, television, games..."
- Been lazy? "Just a little while more..."
- Not made time for loved ones? "I will visit my mom soon when I have the time..."
- Regretted? "All those years wasted. If only..."
The WOLO Life Reminder helps you to get rid of ALL these issues.
Imagine you knew you only had 1 year left to live. Wouldn’t that change your life? What would you do?
Will you spend more time with your loved ones? Will you go and do the things you’ve always wanted to do? Somehow, when you know WHEN your life is going to end, you'll suddenly gain clarity, wisdom, and perhaps the desperation to choose to do the things that makes you happy.
We have had enough of regrets, of what our lives could've been or should've been. That is why we've created the WOLO Life Reminder.
How the WOLO Life Reminder came to be
When we were younger, we experimented with our calculators. We deducted our current age against 70-odd years or however long we think we can live. Converted to seconds, the calculator barely has enough space to fill the numbers!
However, looking at life in terms of seconds can be interesting, and made us realized there isn't very many to begin with, especially when "-1" is pressed continuously to simulate the seconds ticking away.
It was as if somebody took our entire fortune, and started burning it dollar by dollar.
Today we've all grown up understanding the importance of time, but can admit to coming up short. We lacked ways to overcome indecisiveness, stop procrastination and treasure time. Thinking back to our childhood we realized we have a solution all along.
The more we worked on the WOLO Life Reminder, the more we started to learn about our perception of time itself. Everyone knows that time is important, yet good time management is difficult to accept and execute. We came to the conclusion that clever and interesting ways for people to integrate sound time management consistently into everyday life is extremely important.

Risks and challenges
The WOLO Life Reminder is our baby, and we have all put in a great deal of time and effort to ensure it comes to fruition. Our working prototype serves as a good testbed, and we would like to enhance the countdown feature to make it as realistic as possible.
Battery life and length of wire are challenges that we face but we have found solutions to get it right.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
