It seems that in my planning last year, I failed to set a goal of staying organized and in control of my life. Need proof? Just come look at my house.
As I stated last year, I don’t like to set “resolutions,” because I feel like that sets me up for failure before I start. So instead, I set goals. This year, I am following that same plan as I move into the new year.
To help with my planning, I have decided to set short and long term goals. I want to have daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. I have installed a to-do task app on my iPad. I have also installed a dream board on my iPad so I can sleep focused on my short and long term goals.
I will try to keep track of those things on here as best I can… More for my own accountability than anything.
The apps I am using are as follows.
Vision board – DreamCloud Lite and Success Vision Board. I played around with a few different apps before I found one I like. I didn’t want to spend money on an app, since one of my goals for the new year is to save money, so I only used free apps. These are the two free apps I found that I like the best.
To Do Lists – Evernote and Reminders. I really
Ike both of these apps because they give you a To-Do list in a check off format, which I love. I like to see my list getting marked off, so this is nice, I am trying to use it every day to help me stay focused and organized.
Calendars – Google Calendars and CalenMob. Both are great apps. I love all things Google so I gravitate toward this app naturally, however, on my iPad I have found that the format isn’t quite what I like, so I use the CalenMob app which give me the format I want and syncs to my Google Calendar for work.

NEXT TIME: Coming up on Friday, my goals for the new year!
