Goal Setting Application



Saent (pronounced “saint”) is a connected productivity device and companion software application. Using the controller on your desk, Saent can block distractions, track focused work time and enable you to work in sprints (like the Pomodoro technique). In addition, you get points for completed work sessions so you can compete with friends and colleagues. It’s almost the perfect union between the science of self-control and gaming platforms, making being productive a lot easier and more fun. You can order your Saent device through Indiegogo:

    1. Don’t mind the self-promotion if it is thoughtful, so leaving this up. Good luck with your app. The problem is that I find the more people need them, the less they use them. Makes for a very difficult product in an increasingly swamped field. Eventually, we will roll them all into one, but I’m busy.

  1. The GuidedTrack system doesn’t seem to be working. After answering the few survey questions I get through to the page saying “Congratulations! You’re on your way to being a master goal setter.” But it’s a static page, no other links. The top right menu only offers a reset everything option, and there’s a back arrow on top left. Is the software extinct?

  2. I’m a little confused, but the “app” doesn’t seem to be working for me. (Having worked in IT for a number of years, that answer tree isn’t an app which is confusing. I was expecting something to download to my phone or PC.)

    The problem seems to happen around:

    Step 2 > Is your goal already an approach goal > Yes

    Which leads to a run page with a broken link then the start of a quiz about the quality of the “app” and then I receive an email that simply contains my main goal. (Same result twice using Chrome, and a third time using IE 11)

    Anyhow, despite the glitches I read and loved the book and I’m curious to see the “app” up and working properly.


  3. You can’t send an email to yourself when completed setting goals :


    “Unable to connect

    Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web”


    This problem was previously reported, but has not been corrected.

    1. Turns out it is a known issue. Apparently, went offline earlier in September. We are searching for a solution. Looks like life and another challenge.
