Aside from the Belle de Jour, Starbucks or The Coffee Bean and Tea leaf planner that we have or even the various apps in our Samsung Galaxy S or in our IPhone 4, there are many goal setting tools that you can use on the web. I know that a lot of you are setting goals to achieve this year and a lot of you want to have a tool that could actually help you attain these goals.
I searched the web for various tools that you can use to help you achieve your goals. Here are some of them:
This tool is very simple. This can be used by anyone for keeping track of a routine that you want to instill. At the bottom of the chart, there are points that you ca add or deduct, depending on the completion of each task. It’s a free tool and all you need is just to sign up.
One of the goal setting tools that I have seen was when I visited my favorite site, Lifehacker.com. They discussed a new goal setting tool where you can plot out your goals and the site itself has the action plans that you can follow.

Sometimes, achieving a goal is easier if you share it with your friends. This tool intertwines the idea of goal creation and achieving it with a social media component. This tool also has dynamic images such as graphs that can track the specific variable that you want to achieve like total amount of savings, etc. Daily alerts are given to you so you can be reminded to keep track and try to attain those goals today. What I like about it is that it is very interactive. You can make it like your own journal.

This tool is for tracking goals that will help you build core values. The site has actually plotted different core values that you can choose from. Here is the list: CORE VALUES. It is a simple tool that helps you mark those things that you have done (red for not yet meeting the goal, yellow if you’re almost there, and green if you have achieved it).

This will allow you to receive reminders that you set, keep journals and keep track of past goals that you have accomplished, etc.
This tool has a brainstorming functionality that asks questions on what you want to achieve per given topic. It will ask you questions like “What’s one work project/venture you’d like to complete?”, etc., you will be given a list of recommended action plans or tasks based on your answers. Choose the ones you want to achieve and place a deadline. Progress in seen in percentages. There are monthly reminders given to you to help you be on track.
