Time for some Goalst!

With the ICE conference quickly fading into the rear view mirror.  It's time for me to start reorganizing and prioritizing my life (at least for the next few months). So, I have prioritized some of my Goals with the online application: Goalst.  Basically, Goalst is an online to do list grounded within deadlines you set for yourself.  I've messed around with a number of online to do lists. In fact, I've created lists reminding me to check my lists if you can believe that!  But this one is different.  It adds accountability, by making the goals public and sharing with the world the deadline date.  While it's not collaborative, it does make you aware that the world could be watching. Here's my list for the next 123 days!  Once I check something off, it gets added to the completed section. Looks like I have a lot to do in the next few months.
I can see this being used in an educational setting as well for those collaborative group projects. While you can't complete others tasks, if everyone follows each (one of the features of Goalst) other within the group they'll be able to make sure things are getting done.
