It's tantalisingly great. Encourages you to think in terms of making regular progress toward the important stuff. And if the built-in pomodoros fit your brain, you can use it to run your daily life.” — Philip, entrepreneur & speaker

“ A productivity website that links tasks directly to larger goals and personal values, making the reasons for doing them more salient. Regular reviews encourage reflective self-awareness and a more qualitative, evaluatory approach than any other todo-list-type app I've found.” — Jeff, data scientist

The only todo list that has ever worked for me.
  — Janos, researcher

“I have severe executive dysfunction, because I'm autistic with ADHD and anxiety, so it's hard for me to start tasks, remember what I'm supposed to do, or even be aware of where my day is going – especially now that I don't at least have college keeping me on track. Every other to-do app has made me overwhelmed. Complice helps me break down big goals into 'this specific small thing I can/should do today.'” — Jamie, mathematics grad

“I've assessed over a thousand tools for behaviour change, and Complice is unique in having
so much of the right functionality integrated together coherently.— James Norris,

Complice sounds great, but...

Click to read more about these common concerns and misconceptions.

Complice was designed to fix some of the major flaws that make other productivity tools uncomfortable to use. With Complice you start each day fresh and set intentions based on what feels energizing, important and feasible that day. No guilt or overwhelm at having a growing list of past todos that were never finished. Instead, Complice gives you small wins that can build confidence and momentum.

Trying out new productivity systems can be daunting, especially since so many of them require high amounts of discipline and focus to use effectively. Complice is not one of those tools! With Complice, daily email prompts make it easy to stay on track even when you don't log onto the app. There are no penalties for skipping a few days, and there is no pressure to do things you don't want to. Instead, Complice is all about tapping into your intrinsic motivation and supporting you to make small wins. Before you know it, accomplishments like eating a healthy breakfast or doing 25 minutes of writing, can quickly snowball into positive habits, skills and confidence.

Complice offers a quick and easy goal selection wizard. The goals you pick can be long term and big picture, or they can be specific things you want to accomplish over the next few weeks. Your goals don't have to be rigid targets—they can simply represent important areas of your life that you want to achieve balance between (for instance, you could have goals called "health", "family" and "work").

Complice is easy to use and requires a very low ongoing time investment—it's as simple as setting some intentions in the morning and reporting on whether you did those intentions in the evening. The core benefit you get from doing this isn't that you will be more efficient (although you might!)'s that you will start systematically choosing actions that are of higher value to you and you will accomplish more of these actions every day.

Complice compliments most other productivity tools. It helps you execute your most important actions on a daily basis, so it pairs well with tools that are focused on longer term planning or organization. Complice offers formal integrations with Workflowy and Beeminder, and many users use Complice alongside GTD-based apps like Todoist.

You won't need to spend any time importing your data from other platforms, because there is nowhere in Complice to put it!

With most productivity systems, the actions you intend to perform are stored in backlogs of plans and todo lists. With Complice, the actions you choose each day are generated based on what feels attractive, practical and in alignment with what you deeply care about—your goals! This approach emphasizes context-sensitivity, aliveness and small wins, over long lists and plans that go stale.

Of course, if you've got a working list of next actions for one of your goals, that can be a great place to pull today's intentions from.

Complice offers a JSON export, just go to$USERNAME/entryexport.json. If you want a different format, get in touch and we can probably make it happen.
