Goals

The gap between setting goals and achieving them can be difficult to bridge. To enhance the chances of achieving personal goals, reminders and motivation are essential; making a resolution is simply not enough.

A number of apps have been developed in recent years to help you pursue your goals and develop better life habits. To get you started, consider these apps:

  • Optimized: A goal setting and daily tracking app, Optimized can analyze your activities as well as help you set goals and pursue them by charting your daily progress. 
  • SmartGoals: This app lets you set goals, track your habits and not lose sight of your dreams by providing a separate tab to monitor a diverse range of objectives. 

In contrast to the above apps, which are straightforward goal setting and tracking tools, the following apps add a layer of motivation that may be exactly what some individuals need to turn aspirations into reality.

  • StickK: Using a “commitment contract,” this app attaches incentives and accountability to goal setting, incorporating a user-appointed referee and a social network to encourage success. 
  • 21Habit: This app requires a user to pledge $21 to commit to a daily action for the next 21 days. For each day the user successfully takes action, one dollar is returned. In the event that the user does not take the pledged action, one dollar is forfeited and donated to charity. 
  • Beeminder: Beeminder is an app that raises the commitment ante by assessing you a $5 charge for each time you fail to meet the commitment you’ve made (the first fail is free). 

In this podcast, Casey Boland, discusses goal setting with these tips:

  • Make sure you do not aim too high.
  • Think of the power in fewer number of goals.
