I don’t know about you, but when I fire up my laptop some mornings I feel the need for something more than caffeine to get me motivated to write. The Momentum Dashboard is just the thing. Each time I open up my Chrome browser I am greeted with a friendly salutation, the most gorgeous image and the option to add my own list of things to do for the day. It looks something like this:Each day there is a new inspirational quote which you can easily tweet (to share the goodwill!) and you can add your own links and todo list, so that everything is accessible from one clean, beautiful desktop, which does not distract you or depress you. In fact, opening up my Chrome browser to see what amazing landscape image is there that day is sometimes the high point of my day!
Unfortunately at the moment, the Safari extension is not particularly reliable (according to the site), and currently Chrome is the only browser that supports this clever little app, but at over one million installations, it certainly has a following.
If you want to share in the quiet inspiration, just get yourself to Momentum and click to install. Personally, I can’t wait for the iPad version!
