How can PAs be more productive at work and in their personal lives? It probably comes down to planning, consistency and accountability, among other things. And guess what- there’s quite a few apps for that!

There are lots of tools available on the web to remind you to do something, connect you with people who are doing the same thing, and help you look back on your progress to see how close you are to your goal. So what’s the key to creating a goal and actually sticking to it?



Take a look at these apps to increase your odds of setting and reaching your goals



Everest is popular goal planning app, which according to its creators, “helps you climb your Everest”. Key features include being able to capture an unlimited number of dreams and goals; breaking down the goals into smaller tasks, which can be tracked; and being able to share your goals and progress with select persons, the community of fellow goal chasers, and on social media.



You can manage an unlimited list of tasks and sub-tasks (which can be organized into projects and sub-projects); set deadlines for all activities; and access the task manager offline.



Wunderlist is the easiest way to manage and share your daily to-do lists. Whether you’re running your own business, planning an overseas adventure or sharing a shopping list with a loved one.
