The Problem

Being a college student I always faced the issue that while doing something like
assignment when I used to start chatting with somebody regarding it I always
ended up spending hours scrolling timeline which always resulted in making me
lag behind in time and thus creating last minute fuss.

So to solve this problem I decided why not to make the timeline and
notifications itself get disabled. Another problem everybody could relate to was
the incredibly complicated unused daily things that appear on facebook.

Solution

So to solve these issues I ended up making Pelican with two modes namely focus
and minimal mode.

Minimal Mode

“I’ve found that the less stuff I own, the less my stuff owns me.”
Nathan W. Morris

Minimal mode is designed to solve the other issue of getting rid from the not so
useful things on Facebook. Moreover, being a big fan of minimalism my main goal
of this was to make the Facebook minimal. Thus, I ended up deleting everything
except the news feed and chat, as they were the reason because of which I use to
open Facebook 90% of the time.

Focus Mode

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four
hour days.” ― Zig Ziglar

Focus mode is designed in a way that you don’t get notifications for messages
and other things and furthermore timeline is also disabled thus letting the
person stay focused on the task in hand. To further give motivation to work I
Quotes and unsplash image are added in focus mode.
