I've been made aware of a website, GoalForIt.com, that offers a variety of free tools to help people master the art of getting the right things done and bring more focus and personal success into everyday life. By using the behavior charts, fun chore chart, and to do lists I am able to give my kids a visual on their progress.
Goal Tracker - A simple, but powerful goal setting solution that can help you set priorities and develop a master plan for personal success. It allows you to set a goal and create an action plan in three easy steps. You can easily review and measure progress to stay focues and motivated.
Daily Goals & Habit Chart - A simple way to create the effective daily routine of positive habits to bring greater success into everyday life. It's customized to fit your lifestyle in minutes.
Behavior Charts - Helps children learn essential behavior skills and positive daily routines. Reviewing progress is simple so you can easily provide the positive reinforcement that kids need to master behavioral skills. Can be used online or printed off.
Chore Chart - Teach kids about responsibility in a fun, positive and visually engaging way they’ll absolutely love. Create an optional allowance system that helps tweens & teens learn about earning, saving and spending habits.
To Do List - Great for creating all types of lists and planning daily routines, tasks & errands. You can easily organize, review & manage multiple lists, and set reminders too. Lists can be set to be private, viewable by friends only, or public ... the choice is yours.
I've used the Goal Tracker myself to help me set my sights on losing weight. It's been a beneficial visual to see what progress I've made and a reminder of what I am aiming towards. Having an action plan and journaling my thoughts and feelings throughout the process is thereapeutic.
The behavior charts come in two versions, one for kids and one for tweens and teens. There are several different background that can be chosen for the behavior charts to suit your child's personality. By having a behavior chart for each of the kids, they know what is expected of them and it helps them strive towards making the right decisions. With the behavior charts, I've taken advantage of the optional reward/allowance system that assigns points to behavior goals. The kids seem more eager to behave correctly since having a behavior chart.
Each of my kids have always have specified chores. The chore charts are a super way of reminding them of what they need to do and seeing the progress they've made. You can choose from different backgrounds to customize the chore chart and add goals and chores from the forty different ones offered. By making a chore chart for each of the kids and printing it out, they can visually see what they've already done and what they still need to do. It's also an incentive for them to complete their chores to earn their allowance.
On the site, there's the availability to find people who have similar interests as yours and adding them as friends. The News Room updates you on what the people you have added to your Friends Network are doing and your own activity. If you prefer not to have others see your profile page, there's the option to mark it as private. Looking at other people's lists and goals has helped me see what it is that I'd like to work on in the future and how I can carry it out.
The initial setup to get started is somewhat lengthy and I don't always have time to log on and chart my progress. Other than that, GoalForIt is an easy and organized way to stay on task. Best of all, it's free.
