A Graph Of Your Progress Towards One Of Your Main Goals
This will allow you to see in real time how much you have accomplished towards your man goal. You would reverse engineer one main goal into action steps. Every time you completed an action step, a percentage of your main goal would be completed and this info would show up in a chart or graph so that you could visually track your progress. Very motivation I think.

I like this idea of being able to see where I am in the process. I picture something like a race track screen, showing where your horse is in the race.
Many years ago, MAC had a program called (I believe) MAC Project, which allowed you to easily create a vertical graph with tasks, timelines, and progress all together.

I agree. I am new to Simpleology and while it seems to be great at capturing your thoughts in the moment, it seems to think you execute tasks against projects in the moment. Example: I don't want to decide "today" when I log into Simpleology that I am going to work out as a task towards my goal of Getting Healthy. I would want to put Work Out on a calendar on certain days and be able to see in advance the tasks I need to to do work out. I need to be able to plan my tasks against goals into the future and see them coming, not just do them in the moment.

Good option for the visual person. I have found myself having to add more steps in my backwards planner as I moved through it, however. If you did that, then the percentage of tasks completed could actually go down on such a graph - reducing the motivational effect of celebrating visible progress!
