Google Calendar Now Automatically Finds Time for You to Crush Your Goals

by ParentCo. April 15, 2016

You're in luck if you use Google Calendar and have some goals you need to crush.

In the latest version of the Google Calendar app on Android or iPhone, simply add a personal goal—like “run 3 times a week”—and Calendar will help you find the time and stick to it.Goals are easy to set up

To set a goal (like “Work out more”), simply answer a few questions (like “How often?” and “Best time?”), and you’re all set.

From there Calendar will look at your schedule and find the best windows to pencil in time for that goal.

Goals adjust to your busy life

Goals aren't easy—especially when the unexpected comes up—but Calendar can help you adjust in a number of important ways. For example, Calendar will automatically reschedule if you add another event that's a direct conflict with a goal.

You can also defer a goal at any time, and Calendar will make time for it later.

Calendar actually gets better at scheduling the more you use it—just defer, edit or complete your goals like normal, and Calendar will choose even better times in the future.

Calendars should help you make the most of your time—not just be tools to track events.- Official Google Blog

This is a great tool for busy parents: find time for everything that matters—from your daily must-dos, to exercising more, to just a little "me time."
