A very long time ago now, I somehow ended up with Evernote on my tablet. Okay, not somehow as I downloaded it as a file I was trying to open would not open in any of the apps I already owned. That was then and the app sat there unused for quite some time, until December 2014.
In December 2014 when I decided for the first time in my life to actually write down my goals for the following year, I stumbled upon this article by Michael Hyatt and that is how Evernote become useful for me for the first time.
I made use of the technique described in the article I linked to above (not going to try and explain the technique as the article is much more easier to follow) last year and since it helped me accomplish some of the goals I will be using it again this year. Michael Hyatt provided me with an easy way of tracking my goals and it also makes use of an app that become indispensable for me.
Ever since I started using Evernote to track my goals, I have been using it to write notes for school, to save information I need, to save content from webpages, to write blog posts on the go, basically for everything. The app itself has a free version that has enough functions, of course you can buy the premium one if you feel you require more functions, but for me the free one is enough. The app can be installed on multiple platforms, I have it on my phone, tablet and laptop which comes in handy since you can also sync the material and access it from any of your terminals.
As for my goals, I try to update most of them once a week, usually on Sunday morning to make sure I am on track of achieving them, plus it is really good to be reminded of what you are planning on achieving, as more often than not, life can become too complicated and too busy and you start ignoring your new year resolutions and we would not want that to happen, right?
It is up to you if you will be adopting the technique or not, I just wanted to tell you a bit more about what I do in order to tracks my goals. I truly recommend using the technique, especially if you do not want to have to carry your list or notebook with you all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love stationary as much as the next girl, but running from one place to another is not easy to do in London and I really do not need the extra weight in my bag. I am sure that al of you can understand that!
How do YOU track your goals?
