Do you keep track of your goals/achievements online?

Posted by peachananr on 16/12/2012 at 06:37

Hello all,
I've recently decided to keep track of my goals and achievements. I was unable to find an app that can help me do it efficiently so I built it myself.

It's called Bucketlistly.com

The app basically allows you to store your goals online as a public profile page allowing anyone to see your awesome accomplishments. You can also attach photos and location to your accomplishment to proof that you've really done it and the app will share it automatically to your Facbeook/Twitter/Foursquare.

It's the ultimate tool for tech savvy travelers who wants to broadcast their "achievement unlocked" moment. :)

I would like to invite you guys to check the app out and maybe provide feedback so that I can improve the product to your liking.

Let me know in the comment.

Hey altmtl,

That was really interesting. Thanks for the link. Did you write that or was it someone else? It seems to me that people have always tried to create a fake or somehow more exciting external image of themselves with clothes and cars and such. The internet just means that Facebook is the new way people do it.

The part of the blog that really caught my attention was how people flame others with no fear of the consequences that would occur if they acted like that in person. That seems far more true than it should be and always seems extra cowardly to me. People behave on message boards in ways they'd never dare to in real life. Ta.

Hey altmtl,
Thanks for the comment and the link. That is one very interesting article. I see your point on sharing the article but I think you may've misunderstood the main point of the app.

The app encourages sharing tips on how to complete goals and listed for others to see. These photos will also help others to be inspired to complete the same goal as well. Maybe a collaboration to complete a much bigger goals etc. The sharing part is just a little reward for doing all the hard work. :)

Although, that article does have a point, and I will take every insights into consideration to improve Bucketlistly.

Thanks again for the comment. :)

I didn't misunderstand, unfortunately you have to have an iphone to be valued by society today - I really enjoy it when people are texting while we're having a conversation by the way... society is becoming more and more shallow... I don't need an app to improve my life.

You're on a forum where people want to "get away from it all". At my age I much rather prefer a "fuckit list" anyway.

"I'd much rather watch porn..." - I hear ya dude.
Maybe peachanars' app can help you keep track of the time you spend watching porn. Maybe post your goal as watching for, like, 10 straight hours...or different types. A time related challenge might be in order - how long can I watch before I explode?
You can post pictures of yourself "accomplishing" your goal each time! And challenge your friends and family to better your achievements.

This is a funny post for two reasons:

1. It reinforces my notion that people who consider themselves "travellers" are achieving something and hence elevating themselves. I definitely think this applies more to younger than older (and hence more jaded) generations.
2. I was at Good Mook last year and a kid was there with a laptop. He asked me a few questions about Savanakhet and then I asked him when he got into Muk. A couple of hours ago. Stayed at the hotel "Hua nam" around the corner and was now planning his next move for tomorrow. Kind of funny as he arrived at point A and even before he had really done anything there was planning his move to point B. I asked him if he didn't want to stay a few days and check out the town - nope. He didn't like to stay more than one day at any location because if he did, he wouldn't see as much!

Haha MADMAC not that you need more reinforcement but this app - http://en.fogofworld.com/ even boasts "Unlock Achievements in the real world and compete your exploration with other people in the Leaderboards."
