OnTask forces you to prioritize your most important tasks and take control over your workday. The clean, simple design also works as a pen holder to make your desk and workday more organized!

Ever feel overwhelmed with too much to do? Do you struggle to prioritize? 

Too many post-it notes, emails, messages, reminders etc. coming in during the workday?

End the madness!

Focus on Three Tasks a Day!

Research shows that while having a master task list is helpful, focusing on your top three tasks, one at at time, leads to more productivity.

Avoid the vicious cycle that decreases productivity...

 

OnTask maximizes productivity by helping you:

Quick Backstory

Michael, the inventor of OnTask, often felt overwhelmed with an endless list of responsibilities. As CEO of KeySmart, a successful Kickstarter he launched in 2013, he struggled to prioritize a massive task list. 

He read all the books on productivity, but still needed to find a better way to focus. He learned that he needed to: 

  • Set priorities and determine his top three most important tasks for the day 
  • Increase focus by having a very visible, physical reminder of the task at hand 
  • Eliminate mind clutter and never have more than three tasks at a time 

He started using a piece of paper, folded into thirds to make a triangular prism, and wrote one task on each side. He was amazed at how well this method worked for him. He felt less overwhelmed as soon as he took the time to determine his three most important tasks of the day. The physical reminder on his desk helped him focus on one task at at time, with far less distractions than an online task list. 

 He decided to take it a step further and create a more user-friendly, sustainable version of the paper contraption: the OnTask. Using his background in design and engineering, he also fashioned the OnTask to include an eraser and marker, AND function as a pen holder.

 

How to Use OnTask

*Remember, setting your top three priorities and focusing on one task at a time increases motivation and productivity.

1. Write your top three tasks for the day on your OnTask, one on each side. Position the OnTask so that your first task is facing you.

2. Relish in the satisfaction of wiping completed goals and write a new high-priority task.

3. Easily rotate OnTask to move on to your next priority.

 

OnTask Assembly

The blue triangle pieces (on either side of OnTask) detach so you can store pens and other small objects inside the OnTask. A dry-erase marker is included inside the OnTask, as well as an eraser attached to the blue triangle piece.
