How Nozbe can help you achieve your goals in 2015

Michael Hyatt — №26 with Evan Carmichael

This is a guest post by one of our Nozbe power users: Michael Hyatt, who is the author of the “New York Times” bestseller, “Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World.” He is also the founder of Platform University and the massively popular course, 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever.

If you are going to achieve your goals in 2015, you must have a way to track your progress, so you actually achieve it. There are a variety of tools for doing this. However, Nozbe is a great choice.

I don’t know about you, but Nozbe is my personal “command center.” It is the place where I plan, track, and accomplish my most important taks. I couldn’t get along without it.

But did you know you can also use it to help you achieve your most important goals for 2015? There are three advantages of doing so:

  1. It’s a tool you’re already using. If you already use Nozbe for task management, you can easily use it for goal management as well. You don’t have to buy—or learn—another tool.
  2. It’s a tool that is available on every device. This makes it easier to keep your goals visible—a key to following through on them. You can review your goals on your desktop while at the office or on your mobile device while on the go.
  3. It’s a tool that is simple and flexible. So many goal-setting apps force you into their system and structure. They are often over-kill with too many features. Nozbe, on the other hand, is wonderfully flexible, so you can create the structure that works best for you.

You can use Nozbe to track your goals by following these five simple steps.

Step 1: Create a new project for each of your goals.

Like any project, you will only achieve your goals if you work on them. They won’t just magically happen. You have to plan, track, and review them. As Jim Rohn said, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

A note from Michael Sliwinski

As you know, productivity is my passion, and helping people around the world get organized and stay on top of their game is my mission. That’s why, as the founder and CEO of Nozbe, I decided to create the magazine that you’re reading right now. The magazine is free, but creating each issue costs money — Nozbe covers these costs.

I’d appreciate if you checked out Nozbe when looking for a solution for yourself or for your company to manage tasks, organize projects, and communicate effectively. Thank you!
