Knowing where you want to be in the future is half the battle. Start with your life goals. With who you want to be. Everything else takes care of itself.
In Angstrom, all Tasks, Projects and Milestones are connected to your reasons for being.
When you have a lot of things on your plate it can be difficult to know where you stand. Having visual indicators of the status of tasks can be very useful to let you know how long you worked on a task and how much time you think it will take to complete.
Let's also not underestimate the feeling of accomplishment that you can get from making everything green :) Give it a try. Feels good right!
