by | Dec 16, 2020 | Leadership

All effective leaders have mastered the art of goal-setting. But even more importantly, they’ve learned how to achieve the goals they create. When it comes to developing strong follow-through, sometimes all you need is a little nudge in the right direction. Productivity apps can help you organize, monitor and remember your short and long-term goals without the hassle of planners or sticky notes. Here are three productivity apps that can help you reach your goals.

1. Productive: Habit Tracker

Motto: “Create a rewarding daily habit routine”

Price: Basic features are free, premium features are $29.99/year or $6.99/month after a free 7-day trial

Productive is perfect for leaders who like to keep things simple. You have two options to choose from: regular habits or one time tasks. Your stats are shown on a calendar that covers the date with a filled in circle if you complete your tasks for the day. If you’d like more in-depth information about your progress, Productive details completion rates, weekly and monthly averages, and even gives you a percentage of tasks completed.

Unique Features: 

  • You can join challenges (Ex: The Happy Morning Challenge, Social Media Detox Challenge, etc.) 
  • You can set location-based reminders

If you enjoy customization, you’ll love this goal-tracking app. Daily+ gives you the freedom to personalize how the app looks and functions. You can even color code your habits to help keep them organized. Among the most beloved features is Daily’s ability to remind you to track your habits for the day, as well as individual reminders to complete each habit. Leaders who rely on prioritizing will also appreciate the app’s heart feature that allows you to prioritize your daily tasks and habits.

People in leadership roles will appreciate the endless goal-setting possibilities that come with the Strides app. You can set four different types of trackers (project, average, habit, or target) and see them all on one streamlined dashboard. Strides helps measure your growth by keeping track of color coded streaks, calendars, charts, and more. Last, but not least, this app provides progress reports that show how well you’re doing overall, and even ranks your habits by success level.
