I freaking love a good list. Top ten lists, grocery lists, bucket lists, email lists (I am a marketer, after all) -- you get the picture.
So it should come as no surprise that I also freaking love checking tasks off of my Wunderlist app each day. If you’ve ever used Wunderlist, you’ll relate to the satisfying feeling of hearing that “ping!” when you check off another task. It’s like productivity crack.
Unhealthy obsessions aside, I’ve actually harnessed the power of lists to stick to most of my New Year’s resolutions that I made a year ago. And since I used an app to track progress, I can look back at what I accomplished this year and use that to fuel my goal setting for next year.
I’ve used Wunderlist in 2017 to tackle debt, build closer relationships with family members, expand my professional network, and create lasting memories with my husband. It sounds super cheesy, but it’s been a fantastic accountability tool for me this year. However, it took a lot more planning than a typical New Year’s resolution.
As we near the start of 2018, I thought I would share a few tips for how I set and measured my goals using Wunderlist:
I’d love to chat more with anyone individually about how I set and measure my 2017 resolutions, as well as about some of my goals for 2018. Just shoot me a message on LinkedIn or comment below. Otherwise, thanks for reading, and happy goal-setting!
