Coach.me - Productivity Coach for Every Goal
By Lift Worldwide
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Coach.me is the ultimate productivity community. Together, we’ve achieved more than 50 million goals.
Every aspect of our app and community is focused on helping you achieve mastery. From day one, we show you your progress, celebrate your milestones, and answer your questions.
As you achieve mastery, you’ll have a chance to prove it by helping other people in the community. As you reach the highest level, you may be invited to become a personal coach yourself.
Coaching is almost illicit in its power. And it is the top performers in the world, people who will do almost anything to achieve their goals, who are most likely to have the services of a coach.
The Williams sisters (tennis), Tiger Woods (golf) and Mozart (music) had great coaching from birth: their fathers. Steve Jobs (CEO) had an executive coach. Tom Brady (American football) has a team of coaches provided by the Patriots and then another team of coaches he hired on his own to watch over his diet, recovery, flexibility, strength, and psychology.
In coaching, more is better.
When it comes to providing coaching services for you, these are the principles we believe in:
#1. Practice compounds.
Warren Buffett calls this the Snowball Effect. If you let a snowball roll downhill, it will gather momentum until it has become an avalanche. Coach.me is built around turning each of your goals into a regular practice. You’ll track your goals in order to hold yourself accountable to consistency.
#2. Elite performance comes from elite knowledge.
Each goal in Coach.me is its own community. You have access to Q&A from people who have had the exact same experience as you. Every coach in the system specializes in a handful of specific goals.
#3. Habits come from reinforcement.
We’re applying the principles of positive psychology to constantly reinforce your practices. Reinforcement strengthens your neural pathways leading to habit formation.
All of those things together—the support you get from the app, the support you get from the community, the support you get from our personal coaches—add up steroids for your productivity.

What's New in Version 2015.6.12
This release has even more bug fixes. It's a fast follow on our last release because it looks like we didn't fix everyone's problems.
The most recent feature is a high-five for your important milestones. Here's how we described them in last week's update:
* * * * *
For a long time, basically the entire life of this company, I’ve been interested in positive reinforcement.
This is Psychology 101 — you are more likely to repeat behaviors that are reinforced and less likely to repeat behaviors that are punished.
Of course, for people, this story gets more complicated. We tend to overanalyze. Some of us even manage to convert a reinforcement into a non-event, i.e. we’re the people who can’t take a complement.
So, one of the things we learned early on was that the reinforcement needed to mean something.
In the hierarchy of reinforcers that we’ve deployed props from a stranger beat points from our app, props from a friend beat props from a stranger, and a meaningful message from your coach beats any sort of props. In other words, the power of the reinforcer is tied to how meaningfully it is perceived.
Our milestone release revisits reinforcements that are generated by our app. The first version of this app (only seen by my close friends) would give out points. Invariably, people would ask, “Why did I just get 50 points?”
So, I had to admit that points were meaningless. When we went back to the drawing board for milestones, we looked at the path of our most successful users. They all got addicted to making consistent progress.
The milestones feature is about calling out steps along that path. We’ve chosen important markers that show that you’re making progress.
Your first check-in is the most important. A three day streak is a great start. Your 50th check-in means you’re beating 95% of the world. (And, it should be noted that two of our users passed 1000 day streaks and didn’t hear anything from us.)
So, if you do get the milestone celebration from us, I hope you’ll agree that we’ve chosen an important marker of your progress and that you’ll envision the reinforcement doing physically reinforcing the neurons that are responsible for your goal.

Also, if this version of the app doesn’t crash on you, please add or update your reviews in the app store. They get wiped out with each new release, so we rely on you to re-add them. It’s just a few taps if you’re on your iPhone.

Great habit tracking
This app lets you set how many times a week you want to do (or not do) your habit, and then you check it off whenever you complete it (or refrain from doing it). Simple concept, but it’s kept me more focused on actually doing the things I’d like to do, so it’s definitely a keeper for me. The interface is clean, you can add as many items as you want, and you can connect to a community to ask or answer questions about your goal. For a free app, it has a ton of content.
Although I like this app a lot, I’m giving it four stars rather than five because the app is a giant ad for their "coaching" system. When I want to add a new habit to my list, I have to scroll past many marginally related sponsored goals to get to the plain text thing I just wrote. Before I unsubscribed from their emails, I was waking up every morning to a sales pitch for someone’s system to make me a better person. I understand that everyone has to make money, but the constant message that you will fail to accomplish your goals without the help of their coaches gets a bit stale. Once I got rid of the emails it’s been less of a problem, but still not quite 5 star.
This has helped me become more aware of my bad habits, and helped replace them with new, powerful habits.
These guys are consistently updating and improving this app, as well. They seem to genuinely care.
Be ready to receive a million emails
As soon as you sign up, you will start receiving emails from multiple lists. I opened the app only once and just explored and now I get a few emails every day. Not worth it. Not even a great app either. Uninstalled before the emails started coming.
