Goals are important, but sometimes life can get in the way of completing them. Whether you’re trying to get into better shape, learn a new language, or just take time to read, it’s important to stay on top of your goals so they don’t fade into the ether.
Enter Google Calender’s new Goals feature.
Within Google Calendar you’ll now be able to set goals and Google will do its best to help you stick to them. This new Goals feature lets you pick an activity and frequency, then schedule when you think you’ll be able to accomplish them. If you schedule another task at the same time, Google Calendar will smartly reschedule your Yoga session or Spanish lesson for you. Snoozing a task will also move it to a better time.

The more you use the feature, the better Google Calendar will get at scheduling tasks for you.
“Calendars should help you make the most of your time—not just be tools to track events.”
Jyoti Ramnath, Product Manager
This is another in a series of moves that Google has made to help you save time and make your life just a little bit easier. Of note recently have been quick automatic replies in Inbox and Gmail, Reminders in Google Calendar, and Instant RSVPs.
