Editors' review

PCs are great productivity tools, and great time-wasters. It's not really fair to blame the machine; it didn't force you to spend all day Net surfing and forwarding gag e-mails. SVT Systems' GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus Edition is designed not only to help you focus on your tasks at hand to increase your daily productivity, but also to help you focus on your long-term goals and make concrete steps toward achieving them. It's based on "recursive visual thinking," a graphical method of saving, organizing, and prioritizing projects, goals, and thoughts.

GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus Edition's executable can be run immediately upon extraction, with no installation required. This also makes it completely portable. An EasyStart Tutorial offers a quick, helpful introduction to this program's unusual method of organization. Basically, you add "thought balloons," objects that contain a goal, project, or task, to the interface, and then add and associate various levels of subtask objects. Navigation arrows let you jump between levels, and clicking the Home icon takes you to the top view, if you should get lost. Right-clicking an object calls up a properties dialog that accesses the Calendar feature and lets you add notes, color-coding, and other customization. The Hyperfocus Zone is a "special view" designating items requiring immediate attention. An interesting Cloning feature lets you duplicate single or recurring tasks. While it sounds complex, it actually makes sense. We had little trouble adding projects, subtasks, and generating status reports, thanks to the tutorial. It also exports data to Word, something we consider a useful feature, not just an afterthought.

As we've noted, this is an usual but intriguing piece of software that differs in dramatic ways from typical productivity aids and goal-prioritizing tools, of which there is no lack. As such, it clearly stands apart, and it's certainly worth a look.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2010 r0. The e-mailing/save functions are disabled in the trial version.

    Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2011 r0

    Pros

    Very simple to use. Fast and easy to navigate around. The tutorials are really good. I really needed something simple to use to get me started on all my goals. And this really does work!

    Cons

    None to mention. I did have a problem with exporting, importing to Freemind. Due mainly to the Java was I using. Here is a link to a version of Freemind which works with GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus:

    FreeMind-Windows-Installer-1.0.0_Beta_8-max-java-installer-embedded

    Which you can download at:


    http://sourceforge.net/projects/freemind/files/freemind-unstable/1.0.0_Beta8/

    Summary

    If you want an uncomplicated piece of software to get your goals completed, this is the one.
