The story behind Prise
After many years of working as an employee and freelancer in companies of all sizes and industries, I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t with regards to managing projects and tasks. There’s potentially a huge difference if you get these details right, not just in terms of output, but also your health and wellbeing. Burnout is a major problem to knowledge workers, and the very nature of how we work is rapidly changing.
I believe software should be a bicycle for the mind, yet we’ve all just accepted that productivity software requires a lot of effort on the part of the user. Prise is the only task management app that amplifies your effort and actively prevents you from feeling overwhelmed.
Prise understands the intricate nuances of the tasks on your to-do list. This means it can offer you smart recommendations on what to do next, as well as allow you to filter your tasks by characteristics such as creativity, required energy, or importance and urgency. It does this using its ability to automatically categorise your tasks across 30+ different characteristics. Prise is able to do all of this without any extra effort from you. I think of Prise as your own smart productivity assistant, always ready to help you get stuff done.
Whilst I’ve been working on the technology behind Prise for a couple of years now, it’s still early days in terms of building the product. There’s a lot of really powerful things I want to build that I think will completely change the way people think about how they manage their work. It’s been invaluable speaking to the early users of Prise to understand their problems and how Prise’s technology can help them work more effectively.
I’m excited to continue on the indie hacker journey and build Prise into a product that really makes a difference to the productivity of people all over the world.
