With Sociidot, you set broad overarching goals and roadmaps with the small manageable tasks required to get to your goals. They call them Vision Board and Roadmaps. The Vision Board is a good idea, functionally speaking, because scientific studies have shown that reviewing your values and the reasons why you have the goals you have can help you overcome procrastination. The small bite-sized tasks are also recommended in the best science of productivity I’ve seen. Each task should be small enough and detailed enough to help you avoid being overwhelmed by abstract goals that often just don’t seem doable. For example, rather than writing down one abstract task of finishing your term paper, a first task should be “Write the introduction” or something manageable that you can get started on.
The next cool idea is to have “experts” tied in a social media way to your Roadmaps. Recent psychology has shown that we are social creatures to a degree never understood before. (You know how yawning is contagious? It seems true but you can’t see why it would be true. Turns out we do it because we are socially in tune with other people. The scientific proof is that autistic people — who are well described as having various social deficits in their brains — do not yawn when other people do.) So, these experts are there for you to hold you accountable. When others are involved in your goals, you are more likely to take the steps necessary to achieve those goals. Invite your friends, your boss, your family or your mentors.
Sociidot also has a list of more famous experts and their own Roadmaps you can adopt, such as “Build a WordPress site on your own server,” and “Flatten your abs.”
