Strikethru can be used in conjunction with other productivity tools.

Pomodoro Technique®

The Pomodoro Technique is simple - you work on a task for 25 minutes straight, then take a 5 minute break. After you've completed 4 of these 25 minute sessions you take a longer rest of 20 minutes. You can apply this method when working through tasks on your Live List each day.

The 1-3-5 Rule

The 1-3-5 Rule is useful to prioritize tasks on any given day. It's based on the idea that each day you should aim to work on 5 simple tasks, 3 medium size tasks and 1 large task. The Live List in Strikethru is set up for 9 items so it fits this method perfectly. 


The Kanban approach was invented by Toyota to manage their to-dos. The basic idea is to create boards for 'to-do', 'doing' and 'done' tasks. This can be used in Strikethru by creating a 'to-do' list in the Dump/Vault, using the Live List for 'doing' and creating a 'done' list in the Vault.
