Part of the hassle of goal tracking is remembering to track. You have to make your habit-tracking as much part of the habit you're trying to build. Telejoy makes it easy by proactively reaching out to you. You get text message reminders and check-in phone calls automatically — all you have to do is stick to your goals.
Telejoy is completely free, and those phone calls are automated, so you don't have to worry about actually talking to someone every day just to mark off your progress. Here's how the service works: You sign up, tell Telejoy what it is you want to commit to doing, and you'll get a text message reminder to do it just before your scheduled time. Go do what you've committed to doing, and Telejoy will call you to see if you actually did it. Pick up the phone, press a few buttons, and you'll have logged your activity or progress for that day.
After every progress call (which the founders of Telejoy say take less than 60 seconds), you'll get an email with your progress report and a full calendar that shows you how well you've been doing, what days you've hit your goal, which days you missed, and even the days you didn't pick up. If you're working with a mentor or coach, Telejoy can send the report off to them as well.
The whole thing is remarkably easy to use, and the beauty of it is that it brings your to-dos and your goals to you, instead of forcing you to go to them. There are no apps to download or set up — all you have to do is obey the reminders when they come in, pick up the phone when you're done, and you're on the way to better habits.
