Tool for defining your goals, identifying obstacles, brainstorming.

Overview

Aspire... See the big picture before you start getting things done. Aspire is a visual tool for defining your goals, identifying obstacles, and brainstorming the solutions you need to achieve your dreams. It takes a unique and innovative approach, providing a visual workspace to brainstorm, prioritize, review, refine, track and help improve anyone's life goals and long-term plans.

Designed specifically for long-term planning, Aspire is an easy-to-use visual tool for defining goals, identifying obstacles, and brainstorming the solutions users need to achieve their dreams. Aspire helps users take an honest look at the big picture to truly understand what it takes to accomplish them using three basic concepts: Goals, Obstacles and Solutions.

Goals are the big things in a person's life they want to achieve. Whether it's starting a new business, going green or simply staying healthy, Aspire helps keep everything in balance. Obstacles are what prevent a person from achieving those goals, such as missing skills, knowledge, resources, even fear of failure. Conversely, Solutions are strategies to help a person overcome those same obstacles. These can potentially become projects in their task management system when it's time to start working on them.

Aspire isn't a daily task manager, though it's a great complement to any system one might already use. Before diving into tasks, schedules and details, Aspire helps remind the user of the big picture so they spend time on what's truly important. Aspire is also methodology free; it won't force the user to adopt a new set of rules or rigid process.

Whatever time management system a person may use for day-to-day tasks, Aspire will give them a unique high-level view of their long-term goals, highlighting relationships and priorities in a new and powerful way.

I tried the demo, and reviewed the video on how to use this software. In doing so, combined with the current discount on prior to attained version 1.0 status, I decided to purchase. The software is original in how it visually presents itself. I do believe there is a little more which needs to be done to increase the functionality of the program though. The main component required is sub-goals to the main goals which allows for better follow-through in attaining goals. I did encounter one early bug in the software as well, which was upon adding a new goal, it added itself to the same region and ultimately crashed the software. I do hope this does not occur after some time is put into constructing some goals. One function which would be really nice is to include syncing with computers (home and office). Goals need to be in front of us as much as possible in order to stay foreground in our minds. All in all, this is a fresh approach and I sense some great features may be in the works.
