Cool Tools: Goalscape

Last week, I shared my 2017 wrap-up and goals for 2018.  My list of goals for this year is pretty hefty. I felt good after writing them, but then found that I was having a hard time focusing and determining how to start as the days passed.

What should I start with first? How do these goals cascade and serve one another?

So, as I often do when I need to wrap my mind around something, I wrote it all down by hand, separating the different goals by quarter.

That helped. But I needed something more. I wanted to see this plan in a more visual way.

There must be a tool for that, right? To the Googles!

Enter this Cool Tools post focus: Goalscape

Goalscape is a tool that allows you to create a visual web of your goals around a central project.

It’s free for one project with up to 30 goals.

It’s available on the web, and as a desktop application (if that’s more your thing.)  The desktop app is $60 (one time.)  The unlimited online version is $6/month.

I used the free version and was able to create this AWESOME visualization of my 2018 Author Goals in no time at all.

I loved this visual so much that I made it the lock screen on my phone. So now, every time I go to unlock my phone I’m faced with my 2018 goals, asking me “what should you be working on right now?” (Not accusatorily. It’s like a helpful productivity buddy 🙂 )

What project/goals could you use Goalscape to visualize? Give it a try and share your web in the comments!
