What apps or tools are you using to support your New Years resolutions?

I've been making a point to get more organized, and have found a combination of Airtable, Bear, and Things 3 to work just about perfectly. More specifically, I've wanted to learn game development for a while, so I finally jumped on a few courses on Udemy. The tutorials are fantastic, but I've also been really surprised by how well thought out the Udemy platform is, lots of great touches that make learning and interacting with the instructor/community so much easier. What apps or tools are you using to achieve and maintain your New Years resolutions?

    Organize anything, together

    I use a Trello board to keep track of my resolutions. In fact, I have "Dream Board" which I update every year to check on how I've done, adding my new resolutions. It's cool to see what I've accomplished with it too.

    We developed this a few years ago, always see a lift in usage during the new year for those new year resolutions :) There's a lot of to-do type apps out there. We wanted to focus on more time-based activities.

    Habit List

    Manage habits w/ a clean interface showing streaks & trends

    I put my resolutions into the Habit List and it really helps me to keep track of how I'm keeping to them (daily, weekly, monthly analytics). The limitation is that you can add mostly actionable items like 'go for a run', ' do morning meditation' or 'reading 100 pages a day'. It does not help to track resolutions like 'improve emotional well-being', 'improve relationships', etc.

    Focus for 30 minutes at a time. Or a tree will die. 🌳😵

    Forest has been one of my favorite discoveries lately. It helps you focus your attention, on both your phone and your computer, for a given period of time. On top of that, the more you use it, the more money they donate to plant real trees, which is great.

    Time 2 will help you stop procrastinating and start getting work done with less stress! It uses psychology and visual cues to keep you focused. It's a distraction killer in your pocket.

    This is just the best chrome plugin to focus on work and keep the procrastination away... It also remembers you that you're not a Kardashian, so that's also something important.

    Fabulous for iOS

    Reset your habits and rewire your brain

    Fabulous is awesome! Unlike other apps which takes advantage of psychological quirks to advertise more effectively, Fabulous uses behavioral research coming out of Dan Ariely's lab at Duke University to help you improve yourself!

    It breaks down what you need to do to accomplish your fitness goals day-by-day. Each week you get a meal plan and a training plan, while still being able to customize things if you want to.
