Apps to Help You Reach Your Goals - Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

Every January, millions of people decide to make positive changes in one or more areas of their lives. But just intending to do something isn’t enough. It’s just too easy to lose sight of our goals as we fall into our old routines and habits.

There are many apps that can help us stay on track – after all, most of us have a smartphone or other device nearby throughout the day – but with so many options, trying to choose the right one can get in the way of our progress.

For this edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, I invited my readers to tell us about the apps they’ve used for tracking goals or managing a certain aspect of their business or personal life related to a goal.

The sponsor for this month is Geralin Thomas. The owner of Metropolitan Organizing© since 2002, Geralin helps organizers at all experience levels to achieve their goals through her one-on-one coaching and her collection of professionally designed, editable, essential business kits.

If you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers, productivity consultants, or their clients, maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    I suspected Deb Lee would be at the top of the contributor’s list this month! I’m not a big app user, so I didn’t have any great advice. I look forward to the ideas shared by these experts. 🙂

      It’s always interesting to see who responds to each topic. Thanks for being a supporter, even when it’s not a good fit for you.

    (p.s. thanks for the shout out, Seana!)
