 Grow ANY Business Exponentially With These AMAZING APPS You've Never Heard Of

How Good and Bad Habits Can Affect Your Goals

Are you among the 100th percentile of people who have habits? Yeah, we ALL have them. From picking our noses or gambling to working out every day and saving money, habits range from little to big, and bad to good. When it comes to setting goals, habits play a HUGE role in either crippling us or propelling us forward. 

In my opinion, our ability to seek out and accomplish our goals have just gotten worse with the changing times. We are so driven to keep up with the world's ever-changing system that before one goal is finished, we get distracted by another and find it hard to tackle the tasks at hand. It's an epidemic that is sweeping the minds of our new generation.

Thankfully, new technology, like apps and software can assist us in setting our priorities straight and keeping our eyes on the prize. You just need to figure out which ones are the right ones for you. 

Organize and Prioritize

When I first thought of writing this post, I was in the process of organizing my life. Working from home has its disadvantages, especially because I tend to favor the creative side of myself, over the buckling down and getting shit done side. It's no news to me I need help when it comes to organization, setting goals, and overall completing my tasks at hand. Many of us do. 

In researching how I can best do this, I purchased and tried out a few apps and softwares to see if this crazy technological side of our existence might be of assistance in my unorganized way of doing things, especially setting goals. I then realized that in order to set healthy and achievable goals, I need to first organize my life. 

Apps are incredible. If you would have told me what a phone, tablet, or computer was capable of 10 years ago, I wouldn't have believed you. Now, from tracking exercise and healthy eating habits to tracking your time in finding out if you are productive enough with your day, apps have become just as much a part of our lives as our vehicles.

That being said, I want to share with you some apps and software that have helped me succeed and assisted me in organizing my life and setting goals. Maybe you are struggling to utilize your time, be organized, or set goals for yourself. Check these out and see if they might help you in getting your business and/or life on track. 

 


Amazing Apps for your new perspective on life

Getting organized and setting goals. 

 

Time Management

Rescue Time - an app for saving your precious time. 

How many times have you run out of time? I run out of time almost every day. I get so flustered with the millions of things I have to do, I can't seem to accomplish any of them. My day ends, and I realize I didn't utilize my time the best. Did you know there's an app for that?! Time? Yes, it's called Rescue Time. With many apps, you, of course, have your Lite (free version), or premium version. I first like to test out the free version to see if I like it, then make that decision if I want to get a more in-depth experience of the premium. Installation was pretty straight forward and simple.

What it does 

Rescue Time works on any device and will account for the apps and sites you desire. 

It gives you a report based on your setting of how you, or your business employees utilize time on a workspace computer or mobile device. 

 Rescue time offers a way for you to stop waisting time!

By charts and graphs you get a daily, weekly, and annually report of how you can better use your time and when in your day you are most productive. Sometimes, at the end of my day, I look back and can't quite put my finger on what went wrong in my time maneagement. With this software, you can get a breakdown of the areas you need to work on. Today, after being logged in for 2 and 1/2 hours, I had 27 minutes of distracted time. Dang it. 

This is a software you can set up, let run and not think about. By the end of the day or week, you can refer back to see the changes that need to be made. It gives you a daily progress report of how productive you were so you don't have to always wonder if you got anything done.

Instead of making a video that wouldn't be near as good as this guy, I thought I would let him take the reigns. This breaks things down to give you more of an idea of what it does. 

This is simply the best tool for those of you who want to be more productive with your time. In my opinion, great for entrepreneurs who work from home, and businesses that want to check the productivity of their team. Not only is it accountability in its finest form, it isn't evasive, it's easy to use, and will help any business or individual in setting their goals both big and small. 

Pricing and Plans 

Lite (free) and Premium ($9 per month or $72 per year). 

I know it's a lot to commit to when it comes to the price, but look at it this way. How much is your time worth? If there was a way to better utilize it, would it be worth the investment?

Grow your business through pins and images

Tailwind App

Use Tailwind with Pinterest

Tailwind Visual Marketing Suite

Whether you have an interior design firm, a blog, a restaurant, or any business for that matter, you might have a little insight as to how Pinterest can help you succeed. As a blogger, I can't believe the strides my blog has taken because of Pinterest. It's an incredible tool for building, promoting and growing your business. But you know as well as I do, who has time to pin?! With how much you need to pin per day to keep up your monthly viewers and grow your following, it's enough to make someone go crazy! Thankfully there is an app for that!

Tailwind is specifically designed to help the users save time and expand their reach with a consistent pinning schedule. To put my mind at ease I take an hour or so on Monday and schedule all of my pins for the next week. With Tailwinds browser extensions, you can pin directly from your website or any website for that matter with a simple click of a button. You can also schedule directly from Pinterest!

Use Tailwind with Instagram

Instagram is another social media platform to help grow your business in amazing ways. Since Tailwind has also partnered up with Instagram, you can set up all of your posts for the week, at a specific time you would like hashtags included, and be on your way! This works great for me since I am on living in a European timezone, but my reach is on the other side of the world. I can schedule my posts so they can be the most successful in the timezone that is best for me!

It's no secret that bloggers and businesses everywhere are utilizing the amazing benefits of having Tailwind in your list of must have apps!

Well, that's all for today! I hope these ideas have given you some hope to start organizing your life, including your goals, productivity, and businesses.
