I just discovered it, and I'm trying to decide if I like it or not. I had one session, and it was weird, but I did finally accomplish the thing I had been procrastinating.

It's like virtual coworking. Here's what it says on their website:

"Distraction-free productivity
Focusmate virtual coworking helps you get things done.

How It Works
1 Decide when to work
Select the times when you want to be productive. We’ll send an email to confirm your sessions.

2 Launch your video session
Start each 50-minute session by greeting your partner and declaring your goal. Then get to work.

3 Get your work done
Work quietly in tandem with your Focusmate and experience the power of human accountability."

Sounds interesting.

It also seems like you need to be the type that allows/enjoys letting someone pound on your head. I don't. I have enough irl

So interesting! Sometimes I do this with my mother, and even my daughter. One of us will call and say, for the next hour I am b going b to work on "x", and she says she's doing "y", and then we call back and report.

I tried it but had I guess software issues and it was not worth figuring it out so I gave up.

Pound on your head? Not sure I understand what you mean. You just say hi and then you each work on your own thing. You check back in at the end of the session and say how you did.

I had a bunch of sessions since I posted this originally, and it does help. My main issue is that I don't want to be paired with a man, so I don't put myself in the calendar waiting to be paired, instead I look for slots with a female partner.

I tried checking out what it's about. They say to be videoed entire duration of chore...is that true or can you just report back when you are done.

I have enough people irl asking if Ive done some stuff.

It was weird. I would totally do this with other frum women and feel more comfortable.
I don't know. Maybe I'll put myself out on the calendar and see what happens.
If anyone sees a hebrew name...lol
