I work best with the visual – pictures, diagrams, charts – rather than text and lists. When I take notes, I tend to create them as mind maps. I’m also approaching 50 and thinking about what I want from the rest of my life and so, when someone mentioned Goalscape in a LinkedIn discussion, I figured I should give it a look-see.
And it looks great! It enables you to visualise your goal, how to achieve it and how far you’ve got in a very concise and practical way. The introduction video on the Goalscape website is very good and the in-app tips are excellent, too.
I’ve not spent enough time with it to use it in anger yet, so this is not a review per se. Just a heads up to anyone out there looking for something similar.
It’s Adobe Air based, so cross platform, or there’s a “cloud” based version (isn’t there always nowadays?) for even more freedom. It even comes with a 14 day trial period so you can try before you buy, which is what I’m currently doing.
Anyway, go and try it.
