Hi Bevan,

Is the chrome extension required to use the application?

@kasquared Hey Karan,

Thanks for the question! The Chrome extension keeps your goal top-of-mind by opening your Focal Point page (https://focal.pt/demo) in every new tab. That way, your goal becomes part of your environment and you never have to remember to visit. Installing the extension is highly recommended but not required. Let me know if you have any other questions or advice!

Cheers,
Bevan

Hi Bevan,
What kind of goals is this good for? Like, "Hit my deadline" (i.e. quantifiable) or "improve my relationship with my dad"? Slash, is helping us pick a goal something ya'll do?
Thanks.

@HannahLincoln1 Hi Hannah,

Great question! Focal Point works with almost any type of goal (whether that be professional, health, altruistic, etc...).

A main feature of Focal Point is helping you refine your goal to conform to goal-setting best practices (if it doesn't already). It helps you make your goal "SMART": specific, measurable, achievable, relevant / in line with your values, and time-bound (1 year of course). It walks you through each step in an interactive way. This is an often overlooked step in goal-setting apps, yet it makes all the difference in crafting an achievable goal.

Another related benefit is the Commitment feature, that happens on signup. Focal Point helps you commit to your goal in a durable way, taking advantage of our strong internal drive to be consistent.

Oh, and yes, if you don't have a goal nailed down just yet, there is a game that helps you pick your most important one.

Let me know if you have any other questions or feedback! I'll clarify these points on the site.

Cheers,
Bevan

ps. The "pick a goal" wizard is almost ready and will not require signing up to use.
