The main idea behind the app is that all the annoyances, conflicts or small problems we face in our everyday lives (should) pale in comparison with our true goals in life.
The issue I faced, as many others, is that I tend to lose track of what I desire most, exactly because of problems here and there. One approach is to start writing down your goals on a sheet of paper, which I did and it worked; for a while, because I eventually started overlooking said sheet of paper. More Info »
I then tried using to-do apps, or habit tracking apps for this purpose. But this isn’t something to be checked off, something to record progress of, nor a habit to build; it’s a mindset change, if you will. So I ended up building Goalee to add long/mid-term goals and remind myself about them on a daily/weekly basis.
I've been using it daily ever since, and found it to complement all other goal-focusing methods really well.
