Cotivate is an application that allows you to create goals. Once these goals are created you may either use Cotivate as a tool to track your progress on your own or you may allow your friends to hold you accountable.
Once you have created an account you will go to your Goal Library. Here you will create goals and find all of the goals you have already created. After you have pressed the “Create New Goal” button you will be prompted to create your new goal. Here, you will be able to name the goal, add time constraints to your goal, and action items to your goal.
In regards to Cotivate, a "goal" is a desired result or outcome dependent upon effort(s) to bring about said result or outcome. When thinking about how to create a goal one should consider goals as being one of 3 categories.
The first category of goals are called Concrete Goals. These are goals whose results are quantifiable. For example, a boxer may need to cut weight to reach a specific weight before a boxing match.
The second category of goals are called Semi-Concrete Goals. These are goals whose end results are abstract in nature but can be quantified by an arbitrary chosen unit of measurement. For instance, a goal of yours might be to become a better chess player. This result is pretty subject and relative. However, there are many different chess websites on the internet who use their own different ranking systems and you might choose one of these to measure how well you can play. You might have a specific number in mind for these types of goals or you might not.
The third category of goals are called Abstract Goals. These are goals whose end result is abstract in nature and cannot be measured or quantified. For instance, you might want to become more conscientious. Not only is this relative but it is also impossible to measure. You might indicate that making your bed every morning is one thing you can do to become more conscientious. You might potentially view your success of this goal as a function of how well you adhere to making your bed every morning.
The Drip is where completed drip tasks will be displayed. Items marked as completed on the Drip will only be visible for 24 hours.
Drip tasks are the action items, yet to be completed, that you have identified as necessary to completing the goal they are associated with. You can think of them as a checklist. They will only appear under the drip task tab on the day they are due for completion.
If no one is following you yet, we suggest you find a circle to join that will have people ready to help you achieve your goals. You can also join one of Cotivate’s community circles on our official account.
As a member of our community you have the option to create a “Circle”. One can think of Circles as mini-communities within the broader Cotivate community. If you have created a circle you have the options to make it public or private. If the circle is private, only the creator may invite new members into that circle. If the circle is public, anyone may join that circle. The circle will display completed drip tasks for all goals that have been designated to belong to that circle.
If the time restriction you originally placed on your goal expires, you will no longer be able to complete action items for this goal and you will have to create a new goal if you’d like to keep completing the action items assigned to this goal.
When you subscribe to the goal of another user the drip tasks will populate as yours and will be available for completion until either the goal is unsubscribed from, the goal of the original user expires, or if the original user deletes the goal.
If you are unable to subscribe to another users’ goal it is because either the user has elected to not let other users subscribe to that goal, the goal has expired, or the goal has been deleted.
We certainly hope your experience with Cotivate is a good one! However, should the need arise to report an issue please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
