Google Calendar Can Help Find Time for Goals
Google has updated its Calendar app for Android and iOS devices with the ability to schedule time for personal goals. Goals are activity based, such as working out or playing an instrument. Google Calendar users can choose an activity, answer several questions about it, and Calendar will find time for it in the user's schedule. Calendar can automatically reschedule goals when something more important comes up, and will learn over time as users defer goals and complete them. Google Calendar is free to download from the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store.
