[prMac.com] Warsaw, Poland - Motivapps announced their first coaching product for iPhone and iPod touch: Goal-Setting Workshop. The Goal-Setting Workshop app is a series of exercises that guide users through the process of setting resolutions.
The workshop consists of four parts: brainstorming, narrowing a list of goals, committing to a few, and getting motivated to meet them. The app contains a goal tracker, too. As the founder of Motivapps, Tomasz Kolinko, explains: "This is not another to-do list. With our workshop app you decide upon a list of goals and you stick with them. You don't add new ones, you don't drop original ones. This app is not just for tracking progress, but for deciding and committing to doing something."
The application is based on a process trailed by Kolinko annually since 2004.
"If you choose your goals without the right processes in place, then you may end up with a list of two or three things that you should do but are not excited about-such as losing weight or quitting smoking," Kolinko said. "On the other hand, with the right methodology, this app will allow you to identify things that truly excite you and will prove to be motivating. I have worked with this method for six years and have achieved 50 to 60 percent of my goals each year."
One benefit of this digital approach to setting annual goals over the traditional pen and paper list is that the user is guided through the process and is offered suggestions by the application. The user's set of goals is safely stored on his or her device and backed up by iTunes. "A list made this way has a much higher chance to survive for a year than a notepad that can get lost or damaged," Kolinko added. "Goals in the app are always accessible from the home screen while the ones written on paper are either hidden deep within a drawer or on one of the many pages of a notepad."
