Coach.me is a holistic habit and goals tracking app that doesn't stop just there. The free app is packed with features, but the starter templates deserve a special mention. These templates have structured advice, exercises and instructions to follow, prepared by coaches, which makes the journey for someone new to this easier.
Perhaps the most unique feature about the Coach.me app is the in-built community. Not only can you ask questions about problems you're facing or feeling stuck at, but you can also share your progress and milestones with friends or community members and get high-fives from them, which serve as motivation and push you to keep going.
One additional aspect of the app is it gives you access to paid personal coaches, which might be just what you need in terms of personalized help, advice and extra accountability if things are a bit harder for you in the beginning.
stickK is unique - instead of setting and tracking goals in an isolated way, the app has created a system of binding agreements.
As a stickK user, you sign a Commitment Contract stating that you will follow through on your newly set goals and targets by putting money on the line.
There's a psychology of loss aversion in place to not lose the money you put in, but more importantly this can build accountability to yourself that you've physically committed to your new goal, and there's actual stakes to it beyond a purely mental stake.
stickK users have put $51 million dollars on the line and collectively created 533,000 commitments. The website also says its users managed to avoid smoking 42 million cigarettes. There's power in those numbers, so perhaps it's worth giving it a try.
