Working through your goals has always been a difficult thing for me to stick to and would always find a way to put it off after a certain period of time. Not because I was bored of the task, but due to the immense workload I knew I had ahead of me, and was simply too overwhelmed in order to get started.
People often ask the age old question of discovering the best way in learning how to achieve their goals, with countless tips and strategies being shared over the internet.
The aim of this post is to literally show you my way of setting goals and the preferred tool I will be using this year in order to help me with tracking them and organising my time.
The tool I’m going to be reviewing is called Goals on Track, which was kindly offered to me by the product’s creator ‘Harry Che’.
Goals on Track allows you to easily assign goals, break your goals down into smaller manageable chunks and to most importantly, track your progress over time in order to help you to see where your weaknesses are and to help you improve over time.
What You Will Learn
- How to use the goal creator to easily and effortlessly create metrics, deadlines and guides.
- How to break down your goals by assigning tasks.
- How to create habits built over a period of working through your tasks.
- How to document your progress by using journals.
Goals on Track Review & Tutorial
Hi guys, Onder Hassan here!
And in today’s video i’ve got a very special treat for you. I’m going to be showing you how to set goals for your new year and to ultimately help you achieve your goals that you’ve set out for yourself and make it easier for you to go from where you currently are to where you want to go.
I’m going to be showing you first of all how to set actionable goals. Because lets face it, without a goal there isn’t really any way for you to achieve it, because you won’t really ever know where you’re going.
So setting goals is really important and will be showing you an easy way that you can apply in your own time and to get the same results as what i’m going to be doing.
I’m also going to be showing you how to stay on track during difficult and tough times. This is really really important.
It’s an important step for me, and it will be for you because there will come a point where as you’re setting on your path on your journey and achieving your goals, you’re going to be facing stumbling blocks and it’s going to be hard for you to carry on.
So i’m going to show you an easy way to build momentum and to keep going despite hardships and pain, which is going to be very valuable for you. And it will be for me as I talk about it.
Also, i’m going to be showing you how to track your progress and to build momentum. And this continues on from the second point.
I’m going to be showing you how to take that first step and how to build on it over a period of time and to achieve your goals a lot faster in the process.
And lastly, i’m going to be showing you a very very powerful tool, which I’m going to be using to streamline all of these into one powerful dashboard.
It’s going to be a tool that i’m going to be using personally while i’m working towards my goals. And you’re going to see how I use it and how I set it up so you can go and apply to your own streamlined process.
So this is the tool i’m going to be using. The tool is called ‘Goals on Track’, which was designed by a man named Harry Che.
The tool is actually very very indispensable. It covers everything you need to set and achieve your goals, and it does so in a way that is streamlined and easy to use.
There’s a lot of features, and they’ve very recently launched a mobile app of the software to allow you to manage your goals and tasks on the move while you’re on your mobile phone. So it’s very very indispensable.
So looking at the actual dashboard itself. This is what you’re going to be seeing when you first log in.
As you can see, i’ve already set myself a goal already. And it’s going to be starting from tomorrow and it’s got a due date of 2nd June, because it’s going to be a 6 month process.
And i’ve actually gone ahead and actually created it. So if you have a look, one of my goals is to actually get more dates by June 2014. I’m going to be talking more about this goal specifically in due course.
But for the moment, I just wanted to show you what the actual dashboard looks like.
So this is the first thing that you see. On the right hand side of it, you’ve got all of your tasks split up into different categories.
You’ve got a progress status that shows you whether you’ve met your goals or whether you’re lagging behind or you’re behind so it will give you an idea of where you are and where you ought to be.
And it also gives you a percentage of your stats in terms of how close you are to achieving your goals and the progress that you’ve currently made.
It also breaks it down into different tabs. Obviously, the first tab is called ‘Goals’. So i’m going to hit on this…
On the ‘Goals’ section, it shows you all the goals that you’ve got currently set, so as i’ve already said before. I’ve got a goal that i’ve already gone ahead and created.
It’s split up into different categories. You’ve got a description box where it allows you to actually describe what the actual goal is.
You can give it a category. I’ve given it the category ‘Dating’ because that’s what it’s about.
And you can also set yourself metrics, which literally acts as a target that you can set for yourself.
For me, it’s to talk to over a thousand girls in the space of 6 months… A very very lofty goal for anyone’s expectations.
But I would highly recommend that when you do set yourself a task and a metric, that you set yourself a massive massive goal that you might not be able to achieve in the long run. But it’s good to set yourself a lofty goal anyway.
And also to give yourself a target date of when you hope to achieve it as well.
So just as an example of how this goal setting works, i’m going to go ahead and create a goal so you can see how it works… So i’m going to click on the ‘Create Goal’ Button.
You’ll be taken to the ‘Create Goal’ section. The first thing it will do is it will ask you to create a goal.
So i’m going to give an example. So let’s say I want to set the goal of ‘Building a better body’. So i’m going to call it ‘Building a Better Body’.
Give it a description… Why do I hope to achieve it? Well, I want to look good. ‘I want to look better for the summer’.
Start date, you can give it whatever start date you want. but for the purposes of of illustration, i’m going to give it a start date of the 2nd January, which is tomorrow by the time of recording.
I’m going to give it a 6 month goal duration. So i’m going to say 2nd June.
Category, you can choose either a preset category, which gives you a list. Or you can set yourself a custom one if you wanted to.
I’m going to call it ‘Health’.
Target, let’s say I would like to put on 2 stones by 6 months.
What is the current status? progress is zero.
You can give it a colour. I’m going to give it the colour ‘Blue’.
‘Update your progress manually’. I’m going to set this to ‘ticked’. You can leave this ‘unticked’ if you wanted to if you want the actual system itself to do this automatically.
And to also show it on your dashboard. I’m going to leave this ticked for now.
Create the goal… And what it’s going to now go and do is actually create the goal for you. And you’ll see it’s actually on top of my existing goal that i’ve already created.
You can also set a picture as well. So clicking the small edit button on he top corner, it will then show you a list of all the presets that it currently has.
In terms of ‘Health’, i’m going to go ahead and pick this one, because it’s the closest to what this goal is actually about. I’m going to save it.
And there you go. It’s now added the picture next to my goal. So it now gives me an idea of what my goal is actually about.
You can also create a ‘Subgoal’. So let’s say for example you have a goal that is actually smaller than your main goal but it relevant. You can actually create a subgoal for it that goes underneath it if you wanted to.
But I want to just keep it to this for now.
So moving onto the second tab…
The ‘Tasks’ tab is literally the tasks you set that helps you move forward towards your goal.
So i’m going to go ahead and create a task for ‘Building a better body’.
I’m going to click on ‘Add Full Task’.
Let’s say ‘Do 100 pushups a day’. Again, give it 2nd January for the task.
You can also expand on it as well. ‘Estimated Completion Time’, i’d say 30 minutes.
You can also give it a tag. I’m going to leave this blank for now.
Give it a priority, again leave it blank…
You can also choose whether it’s a non-recurring or recurring task. I’m going to set it to ‘Daily’.
You can also set it to where you would like it to end. I’m going to stop it on the 2nd June because thats when the actual goal finishes and completes.
So i’m going to go ahead and create this task…
And what it’s going to now go and do, is it’s going to go away and create the task and add it onto my calendar.
So that as you can see. It’s gone ahead and added the task for each day for that month, which is really really cool.
And if you have a look at the calendar, you will also see it added on my calendar based on the actual colour code that I set when I created the goal.
So as you can see, i’ve already gone ahead and created the tasks for my previous goal. And also the task that i’ve created in this video.
So moving onto the ‘Habit’ section. The ‘Habit’ section is the things that you create of the period of time that you’re doing your task.
So say for example, as you start doing you pushups daily. You may discover that your best performance is during the mornings instead of the evenings.
So I can go ahead and create the habit: ‘Do pushups in the morning at 9am’.
‘Frequency’ set to ‘7 days per week’.
‘Repetitions’, i’m going to leave it at 21 because apparently, it takes 21 days to form a habit.
And i’m going to assign it to ‘Building a better body’, because that’s the goal that’s in relation to. And i’m going to go and create the habit.
And it’s going to go ahead and save it as a habit. So every single morning once I’ve done my pushups, i’ll go into this tool, click on the relevant day and it will display a tick to show that i’ve completed the habit for that day.
I’m going to untick it for now because my pushups don’t start until tomorrow.
Moving onto the ‘Journal’ section…
The ‘Journal’ section is literally a way to track and keep a diary of your progress. So let’s say i’ve done my 100 pushups. I can go in and create a journal entry and talk about how I got along during that process.
Talk about my thought processes, what was going on through my mind while I was doing it. All my pains, all my frustrations. And I can literally track it all down in this area here.
And over time as the days and months go by, I can refer to this journal and check to see how far i’ve progressed, which is really handy.
And the cool thing about as well is that it’s all in this one tool. The whole thing is in this one tool, which makes it really really easy to track. And it amalgamates everything into an ‘all in one’ tool.
Moving onto the ‘Reports’ section. The ‘Reports’ section is literally a way show you an overview of all of your goals and to see how far you’ve come.
It will give you a better idea of what your weaknesses are and what you can actually focus on moving forward.
Again, it’s a very very powerful tool. This is literally the whole tool itself, and it’s very easy to use.
The way Harry Che designed it was that he made it really easy for beginners with no technical knowledge to pick up and use. And it has a really small learning curve and very intuitive to use.
I highly recommend it. It’s a tool that’ve very affordable as well.
The cost is literally $5 a month, which is the cost of a Starbucks coffee. And if you think about the cost of a Starbucks coffee per day, it accumulates to a lot of money.
But this is practically $5 a month, which is equal to a mere one coffee per month.
I highly recommend purchasing it. I’ve included a link to the actual page if you’re looking to buy it from this video.
So keep a look out for it…
So this is the tool i’m going to be using throughout my journey moving forward in the coming months.
So if you are interested in following my processes. Have a look at it and check it out.
So until then, thank you for watching and i’ll speak to you guys soon.[/spoiler]
