We are 99% positive this has happened to you at least once. You’re working hard, making a dent in the huge pile of stuff you need to get done, when you suddenly have a great idea. It doesn’t matter if it’s for dinner that night, a new business plan or just a sweet DIY project, it’s got you hooked and you have to do some research or you might never get that idea back. There goes your day, and there goes any real productivity. Gone in a poof of crazed browsing. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Laterbox is a new computer app that is making headlines even before it’s been released to the public (you need a special invite to get access to it as of right now). It allows you to take all those random thoughts and distractions, then put them into Laterbox, which locks them away while you get your work done.

When the day’s over, you get a reminder containing all those ideas, which have been securely stored for you. Now you have all night to research and explore, without putting aside your real work to chase a random thought or idea.

Laterbox also helps you stay motivated to get certain tasks done by the end of the day. Write down five important things you want to get done, and it will try to keep you on track to reach your goals.

This helpful addition to your computer could be an epic win for productivity and eliminating unnecessary procrastination from our lives. Even better, it could help us make sure to get our tasks done before going off and researching our DIY projects for the next day. Now the only challenge is this: How do we keep ourselves from procrastinating while researching more about Laterbox?
