SuperFocus is a very simple but effective method of processing your work. You write everything you have to do in a long list in a notebook. As you think of more things you add them to the end of the list.

Then you start at the beginning of the list and keep circulating round the first page, working on the tasks until you have worked on as many as you want to. Then you move on to the next page and do the same. Once you have got to the end of the list, you go back to the beginning, and start again at the first page.

I like the list-based approach to decision on tasks. What software could I use that'd be best adapted or has already built-in support for SuperFocus?

Your summary is missing an important aspect of SuperFocus, which is the second column on every page for urgent and unfinished tasks. The second column is what distinguishes SuperFocus from earlier AutoFocus methods and really changes how the system works. – jamuraa Dec 2 '11 at 11:47
I do not get the main idea of this method; when you say "keep circulating round the first page, working on the tasks until you have worked on as many as you want to", when you refer to "working", how do you decide the time you allocate for each task? you work 10 minutes on each or what? and, how much time you expect to employ for the whole list if it contains 100 items? one day? one week? – flow Mar 29 '12 at 8:27
here's a link to Autofocus, which contains more details than the Rules for SuperFocus page. (These details apply to SuperFocus as well, as it is a refinement of Autofocus.) – accolade Apr 2 '12 at 23:37

A quick google search came back with SuperFocus for Windows.

overlapping is not duplicating, the question mentioned is far more specific – Vic Goldfeld Mar 30 '12 at 15:48
