Lifetick – Manage Your Tasks and Life Goals


Lifetick is a great way to set long term goals and short term achievements. When you complete the quick signup process, you are asked to define core values – the things that are most important to you. Once you have done this, you can assign goals within those values. One of the key features of Lifetick is that it asks you questions to help you set goals that are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound). Once your goals have been identified, you can assign tasks within each goal and check them off as they are completed. As a small form of visual motivation, you’ll receive a gold star once any goal is complete.

This is a great way to stay on track and ensure your time is spent on things that matter in your life. You can also use the premium journaling feature to see what you have achieved over. Additionally, pie charts display how far you have progressed with your goals. The interface is attractive and the application will appeal to anyone who needs a helpful nudge towards better goal setting.

Practical Uses:

  • Track how your exercise program is going by using a custom entry in the journal (for subscribers)
  • Plan next year’s trip to Mexico and list everything you need to accomplish before you go
  • See how you are doing with achieving your career or family goals

Insider Tips:

  • Choose to show or hide details in journal reports
  • Use the iPhone web application to keep track of your goals and tasks on-the-go
  • Export your journal data so you can use it anywhere
  • Assign a priority to your goals so you can focus on the most important things you want to achieve
  • Enable email reminders so that you will always know what tasks are coming up

What we liked:

  • You can synchronize your tasks and goals with calendar applications such as Outlook, Google Calendar, and iCal
  • Lifetick remembers your last screen layout
  • The site encourages good goal setting habits using the SMART formula
