Impact Yourself Daily is a configurable app designed to score and track answers to questions related to self effort against questions you define. The app is based on the concepts in Marshal Goldsmith's book "Triggers" around daily commitment questions and producing lasting change. The book is a valuable read for more detail.
By defining what is important to you in the questions and phrasing them in the form of "Did I try my best to....?", you can score your effort in making lasting change. The app will graph your scores against each question and award you with medals and trophies based on achieving the goals you set for yourself on each question.
This app is developed to assist in Impact Advisors' culture shaping service. To produce lasting change requires commitment and the IMPACT framework must be championed at all levels of the organization. Champions are encouraged to take the I Pledge to show their commitment to and accountability for building a better culture.
Commitment: The I Pledge

I will do my best to share the stories that demonstrate the best aspects of our culture.
I will do my best to manage from my level and trust in my staff through empowered execution.
