*Five Books in 2021

I love software that helps people stay motivated. Ulysses has a “goal” feature that I use a lot. It looks like this.

I said I wanted to have 30,000 words by the 1st of May, so it put together some simple math. I’ve done 4,645 words so far, I have 91 more days, and that means I need to write 290 words a day.

And the little green bar on the bottom is exciting, because that shows today’s progress. I put my head down to focus, then when I hit my goal I get a subtle indicator of success. And that inspires me to write more.

It’s a great design. Onward!
