Samuel Johnson, the author of the famous dictionary, once said, “any man may write if he will set himself doggedly to it.”
In my case, I need a little encouragement. This is why I like Joe’s Goals.
It’s a free, online service that lets you set up daily goals or habits and then check them off each day as they are completed. For example, mine has:
- Get up at 6am
- Write blogs
- Write 1,000 words
- Five fruit and veg
- Write diary
I also use the notebook feature to keep a food diary. For more examples of what people track using Joe’s goals, see his ‘zeitgeist‘ page. Another cool feature is the ability to add a sort of progress graph to your Google home page.
Overall, one of the more useful online tools and you can’t beat the price.
