Google's New Goals Feature Is A Game-Changer For Procrastinators
It's like having a little life coach in your pocket.
To celebrate Google Calendar's 10th birthday, they're giving us all a present to help us reach our goals.
Goals, a new buddy app to Google Calendar, syncs up with your schedule to find pockets of time for you to do the things you've always wanted. Been meaning to jog before work? Learn Mandarin? Read actual books? Google Goals will make sure you don't put it off any longer.

Goals can walk you through the process of setting up a popular objective, like working out or eating right.
Just select the goal along with how much time you'd like to dedicate to the practice.
Or you can enter your own customized resolutions.
Goals is like your slightly annoying motivational friend who won't take no for an answer. If a conflict comes up, you can choose to delay action, but Goals will keep reminding you until you've marked the task as "done."
The objective is to find time for the stuff that matters.
Goals helps you schedule the things that matter most so you have time to slow down and smell the roses, or feed a banana to a sloth.
Now go get shit done!
