My pain point is getting up on time in the morning. I have a headache and feel very sleepy in the morning, and I am constantly a little late for classes that start in the morning. Clocky is a good example to wake people up in a playful way. I once wanted to design a coffee maker machine to make fresh coffee for me in the morning. But it's hard to implement this idea.
Then I realized the real reason that I couldn't get up in the morning is because I went to sleep too late. And for most of time, I was not working late at night, I was watching Netflix. Once I open Netflix, it will take me forever to close the tab. Imagine I use half of time which I spent on Netflix to do some work or go to sleep, my portfolio will be different and I won't have this pain point every morning.
I want to create something that won't force people to do anything. There are several exiting chrome extensions like Strict Workflow, which will open/close tab for users. I want to friendly remind me to close Netflix. People can make decision by themselves.
I created a chrome extension, called "Say Goodbye to Netflix".
Here's my code: https://github.com/yining1023/goodbyeNetflix
