One secret to success is that it comes from a combination of perseverance, and routine. And it is not always easy to persevere or stick to a productive routine. The proliferation of social media and internet entertainment has made it doubly difficult to focus and stay on track. People routinely struggle to deal with their social media addiction. Online cat videos often create tension between our intention to do important things and giving in to frivolous activities.
Dhaka and US-based technology startup Virtunus says: it has designed a product to address this challenge: Virtunus offers hacks to maintain a productive and efficient lifestyle, and the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of successful personalities. Virtunus has been building a productivity app to simplify how people manage their personal and professional life online with an ambition to help people to be more productive. The company’s productivity app, still in beta, will be competing with popular productivity apps such as Todoist, Any do, and similar applications.
As part of its bigger ambition, Virtunus has launched Virtunas Tips, a social media platform for people who are interested in productivity and aims to do more.
Virtunus Tips allows users to use tips from other users and the Virtunus team to improve their life. Tips are shared as short articles and videos and users can turn them into recurring or one-off to-do lists to perform. The platform has features like reminders, scheduling, recurring task setting, etc.
Anyone can open an account and share tips for getting better at work and life. The same users can share tips as well as use tips shared by other users to improve their own lives. The company says it aims to create a community feeling among users and use the accountability of a community to help people set targets and accomplish personal goals.
Users can access the platform via the web and can download Virunus mobile app from Google Play Store and App Store.
Nizam Uddin, Founder and Managing Director of Virtunus, said, "We keep the daily habits and behaviors of successful people as well as any kind of success strategy of any person actionable so that the users can practice the tips in the same way. Wanted to guide success. From shoe sewing to rocket flying – one can find anything here. Already a large number of users in at least 15 languages from around the world are using our tips for their success."
Mr. Nizam said in response to the question of why people should use Virtunus Tips since anyone can get those tips anywhere if they have internet access, "Let's say someone wants to lose weight by following Dr. Jahangir Kabir's diet chart or Keto diet. For this, it is necessary to arrange a routine according to that specific diet chart. Anyone can easily do this by enrolling in Jahangir Kabir's diet chart on our website and the app as well."
He further said, "We have made arrangements so that users of our platform can not only view the tips, they can enroll to follow and practice the tips also. Once enrolled, the platform will send you regular notifications for these tips. If you enroll for a diet chart, what you need to eat, how much you need to eat, and when you need to eat according to the diet chart, you will be notified. This continuous reminder acts as an inspiration and reinforcement and helps you accomplish the goal. "
The company says not just diet or career tips, the platform can be used to plan and achieve diverse personal and professional development goals. Virtunus will help utilize the success of celebrities, pill tracker, meet the weekly or monthly targets of the employees, create routines for good results in the exams for students, etc.
Mr. Nizam says: the days of regret for not being able to do something just because you forget, are over. Now is the time to make success a habit."
