App Description

• Make color-coded timed sessions of what's important to you, send them to your calendars, get more done!
• Achieve long-term goals one step, or session, at a time by tracking them using your calendars.
• A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
• Are you ready to be the master of your time by spending it doing what is important to you? Manifest your dreams today!

Customize individual sessions including name, calendar, duration and reminder interval. All sessions are color-coded the same as your calendars for quick, easy recognition.

This method works! Instead of making lists of things to do in the future, Calendar Timer gets you started on getting things done NOW. Getting started can be the hardest part. Once you are over that hurdle it is often easier to continue by way of inertia. And tracking your accomplishments reinforces your ability to continue making progress.

All you need is a calendar like the one that comes with OS X and works with iCloud, or the one that comes with your email account. Calendars have the benefit of being synchronizable across all your devices and can be accessed anywhere.
