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.

"Just the Job!"

January 30, 2013  |  By samwhiskey1966

 |  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.

"Beste Projektplanungssoftware für den privaten Bereich"

February 13, 2011  |  By Sarah1970

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2010 r1

Pros

-> einfach und intuitive Bedienung
-> sehr gute Fokussierungshilfen
-> Hyperfokus zone
-> Sehr gute Berichtsfunktionen
-> Import- und Exportschnittstelle zu Freemind

Cons

-> keine Abbildung von Abhängigkeiten im Projekt

Summary

Ich nutze die Software seit einem Jahr intensiv und bin sehr zufrieden. Überzeugt hat mich die einfache Bedienung und die tolle Berichtsfunktionen. Da behält man wirklich den Überblick und das bei moderatem Planungsaufwand!!!

Sehr zu empfehlen und zur Zeit bei www.goalenforcer.de mit dem Gutscheincode "Ziele2011" 5 ? günstiger zu erhalten.

Ich hoffe das hilft dem ein oder anderen hier bei der Entscheidungsfindung.

Grüße

"Problem Solver"

February 13, 2011  |  By max2701

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2010 r1

Pros

Extremely intuitive
Easy to get started
Color coded
Supports task and sub-tasks

Cons

I would like to see more custom fields

Summary

I've been looking for a task manager/to-do list software and the only thing I've been able to find is the traditional "Outlook like" clone.

I've also tried the standard mind map software tools but I found them to be kind of clumsy once the number of tasks gets too large. The maps get easily overpopulated and hard to manage (visually busy).

If you are looking for a visual task manager alternative, this solution hits the nail on the head!

"Good program"

August 18, 2010  |  By ateamga

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2010 r0

Pros

Great interface.
Great functions.
Great Tutorial
Easy to use.

Cons

Can only access some features at certain premium upgrades

Summary

I bought the program because the demo was so impressive. However, the version I bought did not include all the wonderful functions from the demo. I still enjoy using the program, but I think the pricing is a little sneaky. I bought the "starter edition," and can only use a few of the functions from the demo. There are two versions above the "starter edition," with full functionality. But anyway, I think it is a good program for anyone needing a scheduling program for their life's goals. So the version I have meets my basic requirements, just disappointed I couldn't have it all lol.

"Very Useful"

September 22, 2008  |  By projectmaster

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2008 r2

Pros

Probably the fastest tool that you can use to setup a project plan.

Cons

It can Export/Import Freemind projects, which I think is great. I wish it could also Export/Import Mindmanager projects.

Summary

Very useful tool for life planning. Definitely a keeper.

"Elegant, easy to use"

December 27, 2007  |  By Nickload

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2007 r4

Pros

Great software for setting small business goals, much easier than Microsoft Project and other expensive tools. It's the only tool I could get my employees to use on a daily basis (mainly because it's easy to use).

Cons

None, customer support is great.

"Nice interface, some issues and limited functionality on Vista"

December 09, 2007  |  By ironcurtain

 |  Version: GoalEnforcer Hyperfocus 2007 r4

Pros

Nice graphical planning tool that is easy to use and manipulate data. Use of nodes and colour makes it eady to visualise where you are in the progress of a project and the charts are really neat too!

Cons

Has a few annoying clitches, like the calendars not always taking the date entered and no means to search for a node in a project. Functionality to Import or Export to Outlook does not work on Vista, despite the claim. Support is helpful and will go through their list of possible solutions, but ultimately after installing on two clean Vista paltforms I find, when choosing the Outlook Export or Import, an error is returned "Invalid Class String" and the import or export is not done. This app is not worth it if you are looking for managing your tasks and reminders in Outlook and syncing with GoalEnforcer.
