Life Coaching Software – 5 Things To Look For
With the growing popularity of life coaching, software tools to help you set and plan your goals, manager your projects and tasks, and keep track of your progress are also becoming more popular.
Here are 5 things to look for in a good life coaching software package:
1. Support for balanced life planning
A good life coaching software program will support the idea of whole “life planning” taking into account the fact that we all have different areas and dimensions in our life and that it’s having balance between all these different areas that matters. If you can create a “life plan” as part of the program, that’s even better.
2. Support for setting goals
Setting goals is one of the most important aspects of life coaching. A good software package should help you set clear, compelling goals in different areas of your life.
3. Support for planning and managing implementation
The best life coaching software tools don’t stop at the goal setting stage, they also help you break down your goal into smaller steps and execute your plans. If they have support for task management and a calendar or weekly schedule, that’s even better.
4. Support for tracking your progress
Life coaching software tools that support tracking your progress will help you notice what you are doing right and what you could be doing better. The best tools will not only help you track your progress on individual goals, but on other related measurements like your weight, or exercise time, etc.
5. Integrating goal setting and time management
While these are sometimes considered distinct areas, some good life coaching software tools integrate them together into a unified whole. By incorporating goals and life planning into your time management system, you make it much more likely that you’ll spend enough time on the things that really matter.
While there are many different types and styles of “life coaching software” out there, ranging from pure goal setting and life planning tools, to habit tracking tools, to task management tools, the key is to find a system or combination of tools that works best for you.
