There is a lot of goal software on the market, most of which comes with a price tag. But there have been plenty of times in my life where I’ve wanted to get serious about my goals but had no spare cash to spend on goals software! So I decided to take a look for some free goals software and discovered Mindbloom’s Life Game, which combines goal setting and games!
Mindbloom gives you a virtual tree. Each leaf represents a different area of your life, such as:
You get to choose which leaves you want to nurture and then set some goals in each of these areas. Alongside this, you are given access to an inspiration board. You can personalise this with photos, inspirational quotes and music of your choice.
To keep your tree healthy, you simply have to do two things:
- Work towards your goals. This provides your tree with water.
- Keep your inspiration board topped up with photos, quotes and music. This provides sunshine to your tree.
As you do this, your tree produces seeds. The more seeds you accumulate, the further you advance through the game, which has 35 levels. Additionally, you win trophies and unlock new game features, such as new backgrounds for your tree. Connect with your friends and you will all be able to benefit from each other’s support too!
My experience of using MindBloom
I was really surprised to find free goals software that offered so much fun and functionality! Trying to reach the different levels of Mindbloom‘s Life Game by achieving my goals was quite addictive!
The other thing I really appreciated about this software was being able to add my own pieces of music to my inspiration board. It makes it feel so much more personal and I found that being able to create a soundtrack that fitted my goals really ramped up the inspiration factor!
