Hey! BestSelf Co. team here.
We've been working on an incredible project for a few months now and we're SO excited to finally show her off.
Dawn is a smart assistant who'll take your productivity to the next level. We found a lot of us spent so much time trying to plan the perfect day, or worrying about what else we SHOULD be doing that we didn't get much done. So we built Dawn to take care of that.
We don't want to say too much and steal the show... so we'll let Dawn speak for herself.
Hey, I'm dawn. I've heard so many great things about you.
I've heard you have huge goals planned in the next 13 weeks and you're going to make them happen, no matter what.
I've also heard that your days are always completely packed. Your to-do list is probably a bit of a nightmare, isn't it? And i'm guessing it feels like you never have enough time?
Well, I can get some things off your plate. Let's talk.
Here's how I'll help you.
1. First things first, I'll prioritize everything you need to get done.
Half the battle is figuring out what you even need to be doing. You spand half an hour wrangling your to-do list into something (somewhat) manageable...only to throw it out the window when an emergency comes up.
Just end me everything you've got - important projects, tasks, errands. I'll make sure you're always working on the most important things.
2. Then I'll plan out your whole day. Beginning to end.
Give me your-todo list and your calendar. I'll put together your daily schedule for you.
you'll always know what you need to be doing and where you need to be. You'll neve ragain stress about whether you are working on the right things or worry about missing a deadline. Sound good?
3. And I'll reschedule your day if it all turns to chaos.
You know what they say...even the best plans don't survive first contact with the enemy. So when that unexpected meeting comes up or your friend calls with an emergency happy hour, just let me know. I'll rearrange your plan so you still get everything you need done.
4. I can handle Outlook or Google Calendar.
I'm not just a one-trick pony. I work with both popular calendars. Use Outlook for work & Google cAlendar personally? Or you've got multiple calendars? Trust me, I've got it.

Ratings and Reviews
Such a good concept and I wish it would work but it keeps glitching - yesterday it wouldn’t let me cross of a task once done then later that began working. Today it won’t let me filter the tasks by what’s due today so that if I complete something and cross it off, it still shows on there if I set it on repeat (it just shows as a different due date). Yesterday I was able to filter it by the due date so if I crossed it out and filter it to only items due today it would show me what I have left to do. I also wish you could re-order tasks by either priority or time and also wish that you could set your account to default to only tasks that are due today (I don’t want to see my entire life’s worth of tasks if I’ve already completed my items for the day. I also got an email that Dawn will check in with you in the morning but it has not done so. Maybe it gets better with time as it “learns” about you but for a free week of trial before we get charged $50 and for those who are busy, I don’t know how many would risk being a bit behind for even a few days
Don’t even trial it; doesn’t work
Was really hoping this would be similar to Timeful, which was bought and killed by Google 5 years ago. I also have really liked the Best Self journal so was willing to give this a go. But this is beyond not even a Minimum Viable Product. It shouldn’t be in the app store. And canceling the trial is a pain. Try again, Best Self Co.
A (Great) Work in Progress
I like using the app, and it does get me motivated to take on the day. I am fully aware that my early access price means I get to see everything as it unfolds, which will of course include a learning curve as new features are added and some glitches here and there. Overall though it has been useful and I think it will be a very helpful tool to keep me on track throughout each day.
A few features I’d like to see:
-The ability to prioritize tasks beyond low, med, high (e.g. when looking at all of your high priority tasks, you could include the option to rank them in number order of importance so Dawn schedules them accordingly; you could do the same sub-prioritizing within the med and low categories as well)
-A How-To Guide/Tutorial - a lot of the features I’ve learned about by happy accident or reading what other people are doing. I’m sure there are a lot of cool features you’ve included I’m not using just because I don’t know they exist!
-Push notification reminders - preferably with the ability to customize them and choose if you want reminders: when you should be starting a task, halfway through a task, when you should be wrapping up and moving on to another task, etc. I have no idea how complicated the programming is behind that though, so even standard push notification reminders at start/end times for tasks and appointments would be awesome!
Excited to see what you all keep coming up with! Keep up the great work! :)
