circling in as well as circling out

Visually it works brilliantly going from the core objectives of the strategy expanding outwards to the broken down tactics to deliver against. In some situations I want to have an over-arching outer tactic to deliver against 2 inner objectives - can I do this?

    Hi Laura

    Welcome aboard! Thanks for your inquiry – and for the great feedback.

    Goalscape enforces a strict goal hierarchy (subgoals can have only one parent). The best way to represent 'synergistic' goals (those that contribute to more than one parent) is to create them as Level 1 subgoals (next to the main goal).

    For daily tasks you can record your Progress as the % of days you completed the task (eg a run or cycle ride) in any period, then reset it to 0 at the end of each such period.

    You may be interested in Emmett Lazich's article Getting Things Done – with or without Dates, where he explains how he uses Goalscape in conjunction with a Calendar for daily tasks and occasional events.

    We are investigating an elegant way to represent synergistic goals and will be taking a closer look at this (and other new features) after we deliver Goalscape 3.0.

    Look after yourself, your family, friends and everyone else.
