Goal Mapping Alpha
It’s finally ready! As promised, the alpha version of my Goal Mapping software is ready.
For those of you who aren’t down with geek lingo, an “alpha version” is a complete piece of software, but it has only been tested by the developer (me), so it has loads of bugs, it’s probably ugly, and may not do everything that later version will do.
For those of you who didn’t have a chance to read my previous post about Goal Mapping, here’s a brief rundown:
Goal Mapping enables you to create a plan with concrete steps to go from where ever you are now to where ever you want to be. You create the map, then the software calculates the best path to reach your goal and tells you what your chances of success are.
I’m pumped to hear suggestions from people using this, but I’m really practicing what I preach with this release, because frankly I’m embarrassed of this software. I know it’s ugly, and I know it has bugs. What kind of a perfectionist am I!?
- In particular, it’s not compatible with any version if Internet Explorer. The fix would have pushed the release of the software past today, and that was unacceptable to me.
- It works on Windows in Firefox 3.5 and Chrome. It hasn’t been tested on a Mac, or in Opera, Safari, or any of the many lesser used browsers.
- My immediate plans are on this ultra high tech to do list, and I’ll continue to update that list as I receive feedback. Over the next few weeks, you should see the software stabilize dramatically.
Instructions for using the software are built right into it, so without further adieu, I give you:

Click Here to Listen to the Techzing Panel Discusion with Rob Walling → I was on SoftwareByRob.com fame. We had a panel discussion which covered, among other topics: * Scaling a business using automation * Finding and managing freelancers * Building a content business versus building a software business * The value of growing an audience Plus, you'll find out more about what I've been up to with my publishing company in recent months.

Anchor in Data, not in Hope
Today I'll highlight a fundamentally important point that I've mentioned a couple times before, but never emphasized as much as it needs to be emphasized. This point could mean the difference between success and failure in anything you want to achieve. From financial independence to grassroots activism, if you don't understand this, you will probably fail. The problem is that it's incredibly difficult to grok because our brains just aren't wired for it. I'll tell you what it is, and more importantly, I'll tell you how to beat it. ## The Problem: Trajectories are Hard I once told a little...
