About

BaaS helps you achieve your goals, acting as a boss for your life. It monitors your progress by making sure you’re completing your planned todos, and if you’re falling behind, follows up till you finish them. It makes sure you actually follow through on what you plan, and that your New Year Resolutions are going strong in February and beyond.

Legitimately life changing. I'm sure it's not for everyone, and it seems really silly, but rather than procrastinate and say "oh I'll just finish this tomorrow" I know I'm going to have to come up with an excuse for "my boss". That excuse is often more work than just doing the task so the end result is I get more done. Been using it for about a month and it's probably been one of the most productive months of my entire life.

Pros:

really helps me get stuff done

Cons:

none

I'm a test automation engineer

It's nice to know this service is available if I ever need a productivity boost again in the future.

Pros:

BaaS helped me realize the power of lists and bragging about my accomplishments. I developed good habits through BaaS's accountability.

Cons:

I didn't realize I would be doing all of the account management through the login modal, it was hard to find where to change my subscription

I've found BAAS super useful for getting back on track with my academic research after a long period of procrastinating way too much. Like another reviewer said, the idea might seem silly but it *really* helps a certain kind of person stay on track. There's something very motivating about knowing that I'm going to get (friendly and encouraging!) email reminders asking for proof I've done the tasks I allotted myself for the day. I hate unresolved emails in my inbox so that's definitely one aspect of it! I usually send in a weekly task list then send in proof of completed tasks daily. This helps set me up for the week in that I actually put thought into what I will realistically be able to get done each day of a particular working week. Writing my to-do list feels way more meaningful to me now. Try it out if you're a procrastinator who is struggling getting by with intrinsic motivation alone!
