ARISE IS YOUR ROCKET SHIP INTO FLOW! It identifies your 9 procrastinator demons and helps to beat them by getting you into motion! Time is Your most prescious resource, time to Arise!
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles."
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Here is how Arise gets you from the dark playground of procrastination into productivity-land in 4 simple steps:
1.If you are ready to rock it gives an initial dopamine shot with a crazy animated timer
2.If something blocks your doer self, Arise guides you to identify your current demon
3.It coaches you to kick the blocker demon's arse
4.Comes the pomodoro rocket booster to get you into motion!
Dominating procrastination is a huge deal: it gives you back the control over your own life.
The first step was to specify the enemies with surgical precision. Yes, plural, because there is not one demon but many - and every one of them requires a special treatment! Mr. Adrenaline-junkie, Mr. Intimidator, Mr. Stigmatizer and 6 other bastards.
The second insight was understanding their true nature. We realized that they are so strong, we must use their own weapon against themselves to lure them into our evil-genius trap.
The last step? To eliminate the blind spot from the system which generates the problem: your own mind. Curious how? Outsourcing the solution to an un-biased medium. Now there is an app for that. (There are countless productivity apps, but no one truly effective dedicated to anti-procrastination)
Are you curious how deep the rabbit hole is?
We are on a mission. We believe, procrastination is a modern epidemic which steals your free time, your money through suboptimal productivity and yes, health (!) and as such it should be cured. We declared war on procrastination and want to turn procrastination into PREcrastination.
Are you ready to destroy your demons and multiply your productive time with the help of this simple but brutally effective app? Hit download and you'll never look back...

Ratings and Reviews
One of the few apps I use every day
Make no mistake, this is not a GTD app - yet it gets me get things done. How? The brilliant idea of using demon metaphores to help us face our block in my head is pure genius and works like charmr. Been a fan for 2 years, using it daily, and by fixing the other reward bug, it just became a truly perfect little app.
Better than pharmaceuticals for ADD
As an adult with ADD, nothing has helped me be more productive. This is a rare life-changing app!
Make sure your rewards are good enough to motivate you to stay on task for the set duration. 10 min of a MMO strategy game for every 30 min of productive, focused, disciplined sprints makes me more productive than several hours of non-structured work.
Not a lot of reuse
The different monsters are helpful at naming the different psychological blocks on procrastination. I was excited by that. I was disappointed to discover that the result of selecting each unique monster is essentially the same. If the author updates this app I might re-download it and adjust my review.
