The GoalWard App is a motivational goal-setting app that was built to help you track individual and team goals. What’s unique about GoalWard is that not only do 100% of the proceeds go to the UCLA Cardiovascular Discovery Fund, but users can invite friends, family members or colleagues to participate in your goal without having to actually create a goal themselves. They just download the app, connect to the appropriate users, and then they can give you motivational support as you accomplish your goal.
There are two types of goals in the Goalward App: Me Goals and We Goals.
A Me Goal is an individual goal. For example, stop smoking for two months, do not touch my mobile phone for ten drives, be respectful to parents to earn a new toy, etc…
A We Goal is team goal that has more than one participant. We Goals can be used by a group of people working towards the same goal, and each person can contribute to the overall achievement of the goal. For example: Grow revenue by 50% in Q1, scoring seven goals in three games, have the class go one entire week without needing the Teacher to tell them to quiet down.
In both a Me Goal and a We Goal, GoalWard users can connect to other users and participate in their progress.
Additionally, the GoalWard Community Leaderboard shows a running list of all your GoalWard connections and displays how far along everyone is in their current goal. You can send your connections virtual high-fives and other words of motivational cheer.
Once you’ve created a goal, the GoalWard mascot Goalie will assign a specific number of Goalies you need to earn to complete your goal. If you create a goal that is two weeks long, you’ll need to earn 14 Goalies to complete the goal.
When you’ve successfully completed your goal you can share your results with the social community, including such sites as Facebook and Twitter.
Note: 100% of the proceeds of the purchase of the GoalWard App will be donated to the UCLA Cardiovascular Discovery Fund. The UCLA Cardiovascular Discovery Fund (CDF) has been established to facilitate synergy with traditional research funding that will optimize the generation and testing of new hypotheses. Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of disability and premature death in men and women. Almost every adult has had at least one family member or close friend affected, and while progress has been made, much more needs to be done.
All proceeds will go to the UCLA Cardiovascular Discovery Fund to help expedite the acquisition and translation of basic science results into clinical applications for patients with cardiovascular disease.
