The story behind Llama Life

To say I love productivity tools is an understatement! I love understanding the systems behind tools, and the habits and psychology people use to get things done.

I built Llama Life because I was diagnosed with ADHD about 10 years ago and ever since then have been trying to find solutions to help increase my focus and get work done.

But I just couldn’t find a tool that worked the way I wanted it to. I found plenty of tools that helped me MAKE lists, but I wanted something that would actually help me work THROUGH my list.

I discovered that setting a fixed amount of time for each task gave me a strange sense of calm. It also gave me the mental space to focus on ONE thing at a time. And this is what Llama Life is designed to do!

With Llama Life, my end goal was to create something that would provide you with a feeling of calmness and control (and also fun!). I hope I’ve achieved this. Thanks for checking it out, and if you have any feedback or feature requests you can find me on Twitter @threehourcoffee or drop me an email at hello@llamalife.co.

PS – As for why it’s called Llama Life…well, that comes from a trip I did to Peru in 2018. I was lucky enough to visit a small village, and chat with some of the locals there. They had no electricity or running water, but damn they had a lot of llamas! At the time, one thing that stuck me was how peaceful, calm and content they all were, and when it came to naming this app, I wanted to replicate that feeling. And so…“Llama Life” was born.
