I’m not sure about you, but I’m always on the lookout for websites related to productivity and goal tracking. Pen and paper can work sometimes, I write down important goals on paper, but there’s nothing as cool as creating a chain on chains.cc, or looking at all the professional statistics at GoalsonTrack. These tools are available to us, we may as well make the most of them!
I’ve compiled 3 websites that I believe are awesome for tracking goals and staying on the right path. I hope you enjoy them!
I haven’t been using 750Words for long–only about a week, but I can assure you that it’s made a huge difference to my productivity as well as visualizing goals. In fact I was going to write a review on the site until I came across this great review from BecomingWhoYouAre.
The great thing about 750Words is that it encourages you to ‘just write’, I personally use it as a journal – reflecting on my day and planning the next day. You can use it however you want. How does it help us achieve our goals? Well I can’t speak for everyone, but when it’s just me, an empty slate, and 750 words that I haven’t planned at all: I start to think a lot about my goals and my future.
Arguably, one of the most awesome features of 750Words.com is that it uses the regressive imagery dictionary in order to analyse your subconscious. Obviously this isn’t 100% perfect, in fact most of the time it won’t be correct at all – but when you compare the statistics with your writing, you’ll find that some points are pretty damn spot on.
This is probably the most popular site out of the three. Chains.cc is very simple, yet incredibly effective. There’s just something about connecting the dots, right!
Chains.cc encourages users to create chains by completing an exercise each day (or week, you can skip out certain days also). It could be something simple like going to the gym, not-smoking, etc. You have the option of changing the chain’s color and image, for example; you could use the ‘weights’ chain style as a symbol for the gym.
I use this website for a lot of things, it’s a great incentive, but you have to make the final effort!
This is where it gets serious. GoalsOnTrack is the most advanced thing I’ve seen in terms of setting and tracking goals. It follows the SMART goal acronym: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Some of its features include:
- Sub-goals – Breaking goals down into manageable chunks
- Real time progress tracking – Stay motivated by seeing instant progress
- Sample goal templates and action plans
There’s loads more features, which you can check out on the ‘features’ page. The only thing that might put you off GoalsOnTrack is that it costs, unlike the other two. It’s about $5 a month ($68 for a year subscription), and is well worth the small amount of money in my opinion.
The link for GoalsOnTrack is an affiliate link, meaning I will receive a commission if you decide to purchase it. Keep in mind I would never recommend a product that isn’t worth the money!
