Vision definition

The vision on the Goalmap app plays a key role. It is your long-term goal (improve sleep, be more productive, better manage stress, etc.). Depending on your long-term goal, we will recommend habits you habits to implement in your daily life. To find out where you stand in relation to this vision, you can regularly answer the Feeling question on the Profile page.

No, you cannot change your vision. But don't worry, you can choose other habits than the ones we recommend!

In order to achieve your goals, it is crucial to visualize the results you hope to achieve upstream and to anticipate the obstacles you may encounter along the way. KarateKat will take you through this very useful exercise that you can do on the "Profile" page.

The " Feeling " questionnaire allows you to regularly measure where you stand compared to your initial vision. If your vision was "Sleep well", is the quality of your sleep gradually improving? Answering this question on a regular basis will allow you to better understand your reactions and adjust your actions.


Goal-setting

Once you have defined your vision (i.e. your long-term goal), you can choose the goals that inspire you. On Goalmap, we focus on 20 life-changing habits, those that affect our physical or mental health. Customize the habits that inspire you and let's get started! On the Profile or Today page, press the "Add a habit" button and choose from dozens of available habits. Select the goals that inspire you, customize them and go for it!

Easy...Press "Add a habit" on the "Today" or "Profile" pages, select the habit "Meditate". Answer a question that allows us to suggest a relevant target value for your goal. You can validate or modify the target value by pressing "Edit".

Can't find the habit you want to work on? That’s no big deal, you can create it! To do so, on the habits page, press the "Create a habit" button at the bottom of the page. There you can create your own goal by choosing a name, a color, a target and a recurrence for this habit.

It's really up to you. If you ask us, we would say that it's good to start with 5 goals, in 2 categories at least, and with a decent amount of daily or weekly goals. The things you do most frequently will build who you are. If you feel comfortable, you can increase the number of targets. Don't make overwhelming and make sure you enjoy the journey.
