Goaly

A lot of us plan stuff.

We plan homework in planners, events in our calendars, and errands on stickies. But what about the bigger things? Things that could take a month, or a year, or who knows how long to accomplish? Where do you write down "run a marathon" or "start a business?"

Turns big goals into small steps.

Goaly first helps identify what you want to accomplish most, and then prompts you to work backwards to figure out what steps are needed to reach this goal. Suddenly, something that seemed impossible is now attainable when broken down into easy, specific actions that can be taken today, tomorrow, and further.

1. Goaly prompts the users to think of their goals, and uses a color system to help organize them.

2. The user then prioritizes up to four goals to work on at a time. Limiting the number of goals will help to focus the user's attention.

3. The end goal is specified and visualized, and then the user works backward to figure out what steps need to be taken in order to achieve this goal.

4. It is easy for the user to look back on goals already accomplished, as well as ones he or she is currently working on, and goals they have for the future, all at the same time.
