There are multiple kinds of web-based and mobile apps for tracking goals, creating habits, and managing tasks. Some are free and others require payment for the app or service.
Want to share your success with family and friends? Try an online community platform.
Motivated by money? Choose an app with financial incentives. Need a way to stay
organized? Create interactive tasklists.
Here are a few apps to help you get started:
SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. Apps like Lifetick and GoalsOnTrack help you set and achieve SMART goals with tasks, reminders, journals, data tracking, charts and tools.
Organization is key to productivity. Toodledo incorporates to-do lists, notes, outlines and
reminders to help keep people organized and on task. Bonus: Tasks sync across your computer, tablet, and phone.
Sometimes simple is better when trying to create change. Joe’s Goals is a free, easy to use online interface for tracking goals and habits. A check mark system and notes track individual progress, and users stay motivated by sharing daily scores with friends.
Apps based on the “Don’t break the chain” productivity method allow users to cross off each day a desired habit was maintained on a calendar. Keep up the good work, and don’t
break the chain.
Incentives and consequences make people far more likely to achieve a goal. With apps like Beeminder and stickK, users create a commitment contract with cash stakes. Failing to achieve personal goals or veering off track will cost real money.
Support can make a huge difference in achieving goals. Lift helps you identify goals, track performance, and make progress. The community of use
rs and coaches offers inspiration, advice, and cheers for each success.
