As you enter 2014 you may tell or think to yourself “enough is enough”, “no more excuses”, “I must make a change”, “2014 is my year” here are four, downloadable apps that sync across your devices that will resource you in achieving your personal goals.
*Disclaimer* – Self-Control, and discipline are key ingredients in any personal achievement. Your success journey must be planned, which requires a new routine, accountability, and actual application of the use of these helpful apps.
1. Spiritual Goals - “YouVersion Bible” App
You Version Bible App is FREE! Full of bible studies, weekly devotionals, and Bible reading plans that will help you go “deeper” as you pursue a wholehearted relationship with your heavenly father. All “reading plans” have a reminder setting, which you can receive via text or email. This app has been helpful to me in my spiritual growth. I am currently utilizing the app to read through the Bible in one year.
2. Physical Goals – “Lose It”
“Lose It” helps you to lose weight through tracking calories and what you eat. Before using this app I ate more than what by body needed. Living underneath the deception that I was eating okay… Wrong and 10lbs heavier. Personally, I have never struggles with the motivation to workout. However, my eating habits were horrific, which resulted in no change. Hating the idea of counting calories was not very appealing, but neither was my chubby tummy. Change comes only with the creation of new choices… counting calories. This tool has been so hopeful in setting eating boundaries for my physical body. Knowing my inclination to weakness I needed accountability in this area of my life. Michael Yoder has been a helpful partner as we push each other forward to achieve our health and fitness goals.
3. Financial Goals – “Mint”
Mint another free app that helps you achieve your financial fitness goals. Mint is an online budget that syncs across your devices tracking spending patterns, providing unhealthy spending alerts. This app is much more user friendly than a Excel spreadsheet. The Dave Ramsey Show is a must have app where you can listen “on the go” to the stewardship principles of financial expert Dave Ramsey as you seek to achieve “Financial Peace”.
4. Organizational Goals – “Evernote”
Lastly, this app is helps you manage your “To Do Lists”, Projects, Work Life, Ideas, Photos, Web-clipping etc. In order to make forward progress in your goals you need organization and structure for all aspects of your life. Evernote is my go to app to categorize, organize plans, notes, and ideas. Success does not happen, but is planned.
I hope these you diligently use these apps in for your spiritual, physical, financial, and organizational development.
