How the New WeAchieve Works

WeAchieve is the most powerful goal tracking platform out there on the market today. But with that power does come a bit of complexity. Here’s your quick guide to how WeAchieve defines goals, and what you can do with it.

It all starts with goals. Goals are the handful of big things that you want to accomplish. Some examples could be: to live healthier, to run a marathon, to learn new things, stay in touch, to get organized, or many more. These can be as specific or broad as you want, but they should be meaningful to you. They should be the core of what you want to accomplish in the coming years.

Scroll Less & Live More: A Conclusion

How does using goals work as a tool to reduce over-reliance on smart phones? Pretty darn well based on my experiment. Here’s what happened:

Twitter: an interesting and addicting place.

This is part three of a series exploring how to reduce smart phone usage. If you haven’t seen either earlier piece, check out part one and part two.

As I had noted in the first part of this series, Apple’s iOS update at the beginning of the month began to reveal just how much time we all spend on our phones. After a week of using my phone as usual with this feature, the picture was not pretty:

  • Daily screen time: 3 hours and 6 minutes (this is actually very close to the national average)
  • Daily # of Pickups: 98 (~1 every 9 minutes)
  • Daily Twitter Time: 1 hour and 6 minutes

I set out to reduce those with four goals running through the end of October. Now that we’re there, what’s the result? Here’s what those same #’s looked like once the goals were put in place:

Fighting Phone Addiction

Last week, I quantified just how bad my phone addiction was: 3 hours and 5 minutes a day. One week later, here’s how that is changing…

If you didn’t take a look at last week’s update, it will help to check that out. But the gist of the story is this: Apple released an update that reports daily screen time, I see that I use my phone 3 hours and 5 minutes per day and particularly Twitter for 1 hour and 6 minutes a day, and I decide that neither one of those is acceptable and set targets to reduce them!

(As always, all visuals here are made in WeAchieve because if your productivity platform can’t do this for you, you are using the wrong productivity platform)

We’ll start with the headline: daily screen time has dropped from 3 hours and 5 minutes down to 1 hour and 52 mins, a 40% reduction, and well under my goal of 2 hours and 30 mins per day:

Total phone screen time (in hours) by day over the past two weeks.
