The Best Goal Setting Apps
Let me be the first to say that my phone is fantastic. I’m not going to try to feign disgust for it or walk around as those I have no choice but to look at it’s beautiful screen. I use my phone a lot and will take full ownership of that.
While there are times I get lost in Pinterest’s constant stream of hypnotizing recipes I’ll never make, my phone is a huge help to my daily life. What would I do without notifications telling me I should have been across town 10 minute ago? Where would I be if my phone didn’t give me turn by turn directions from my driveway? Really, without my phone, I’d be face down in a pothole.
Besides being my #1 survival tool, my phone plays a big role in my productivity and success. While the thought of the best goal setting apps doesn’t sound as exciting as the best grumpy cat emojis, let me assure you the former is more helpful than the latter (maybe). There are a lot of great choices as far as goal setting apps are concerned, and I’m going to help you sort through them to discover what will work best for you as you work toward your goals.

Are you ready to go streaking? No, get your head out of your college days. Starting a goal streak is a great way to keep track of your progress and ensure your goals are moving forward. With Goal Streaks, you can decide upon a daily action that will help you achieve a certain goal
Action: study 5 new words a day
Goal: learn Spanish
Each day that you successfully complete the action, you receive a checkmark. When you open the app, you can see how many checkmarks you have and get an idea of how committed you’ve been to the goal. While the concept may seem overly simple, let me tell you, it’s really effective. There’s nothing like the simple reward of seeing a long line of checkmarks to keep you motivated to continue pursuing your goals. Don’t believe me? Give it a try.
This app is similar to Goal Streaks in that it helps you keep track of the days on which you’ve completed specific tasks as you move towards a goal. The difference with this app is that you can see all of your goals for the day stacked upon each other. If you have multiple goals, this helps you see which goals still need to be worked on that day. The difference between Goal Streaks and Daily Goals is mainly aesthetic and personal preference, so give them both a try and see which you like the best.

Equipped with a goal setting workshop, this app will take you step-by-step through the goal setting process so that you can set the right goals for you. As I’ve discussed in What Next?, there’s nothing more important to goal achievement than discovering goals that are meaningful and specific to your desires and lifestyle.

This app breaks down goals into 8 life categories, helping you to organize your goals based on work, recreation, health, ect.
