With the new year right around the corner, many of us will be making New Years' Resolutions. The problem isn't making them, the problem is keeping on track with them. All too often, our goal of going to the gym every day, or eating better, or even trying to learn something new, fizzles out from lack of tracking. By tracking your progress, you can add incentives to your personal goals. Check out this collection of apps that help you keep track of your goals and the things important to you.

Trello is a great app for those who like to stay very specific in their organizing. It is also great for groups or couples looking to keep track of goals and tasks in a collaborative manner.
Each goal in this app can be customized and broken down into the smallest of tasks. You can then share them with those in your accountability group, and everyone can check off when they're done.
For those in the corporate world, this acts as a fantastic task manager as well, following the progress of different projects. The free version is great for individuals, and the paid version is best for companies.
Forest puts a fun twist on keeping on task. You can set yourself a timer for the amount of time that you want to spend on a task, and as soon as you start, you get a virtual seed. Throughout the time you spend task, the seed grows into a tree onscreen.
If you stop your task and leave, the tree will die, and you will have to start over. This creates a more immediate and tangible goal for yourself, as you want to have your tree fully mature when you complete your task.
Once you finish, you can earn coins that will earn you new types of trees, and if you so choose, you can use those coins to donate toward a real tree being planted! You're helping the environment and bettering yourself at the same time!
You can do it!
