Marvin's Mission

To give people the right tools to be productive and fight procrastination so they can close the gap between who they are and who they want to be.

Marvin's story

Hi, I am Christina and I am a master procrastinator. A few years ago I started an e-commerce business, and very quickly I was overwhelmed by the mountain of tasks that had to get done. I tried a couple of todo apps to help me get my act together, but none of them felt right, and I decided to build a tool that worked for me.

While my new tool helped me feel more organized, I still procrastinated with getting the work done. So I did what I always do when I have a problem: I googled it all day long. I read and read, bought tons of books, and talked to procrastinators. The more I researched, the more I saw the absolute trail of misery procrastination leaves in its wake: lost dreams, unachieved goals, anxiety, stress, self-hatred, utter hopelessness, and depression. Something needs to be done!

From then on I made it my mission to try and help as many people as possible with their procrastination issues. I started to add features to my tool, incorporating scientific theories about procrastination that I had learned about. The vision for Amazing Marvin was born — a tool that not only lets you store your tasks but actually helps you get them done.

Of course, now that Marvin became an actual important project, I also started procrastinating working on it. But this gave me even more opportunities to test out its effectiveness.

I am happy that I was finally able to resist the urge to make it better and better and just launch Version 1.0 (OK, my husband forced me). There is so much more that can be done to make Marvin even more helpful and I hope you will join me in this journey to fight back against a terrible affliction that is preventing millions of people from living up to their potential.
