Vervo Concepts - Overview
Vervo uses the following concepts to help you getting things done:
A goal is a thought/vision of yours that you want to turn into reality. Say you set a goal to
take a vacation to Paris. To start working on this goal, the first thing you do with Vervo is to
create a new goal with your planned dead line or an open dead line goal if this is a long term goal.
Once you create your goal, you can now start mapping out what needs to be done to achieve this goal.
Vervo offers seven types of contents that you can add to your goal:
- Inspiration Board - This follows the law of attaction in a sense that you add photos that inspire you
to keep working towards your goal. For the vacation to Paris example, I'd add gorgeous pictures of the Eiffel tower,
vinyards, and greenery to inspire/remind me of what I'd be enjoying if I make this goal happen.
- Routines - they are the recurrent habits/todos that you need to do everyday to help you achieve your goal.
If you are working on losing weight, for instance, you can setup a daily routine to go to the gym and another to
run 3 miles. Routines offer a calendar view where you can track your daily progress in terms of: total times you have logged
your activity for the day, current streak, and longest streak. Since Vervo emphasizes the concept of engaging family and friends to
inspire and be inspired towards your goals, routines offer a leader board feature. This feature adds a little bit of a fun
competition to help you stay on top of your habits/routines.
- Tasks - thos are different from routines in terms of a task needs to be done/checked off only once.
In the example goal of 'Vacation to Paris' a task could be pack my bags, or buy new luggage. Think of tasks as your todo list
for this specific goal.
- Diaries - this is your daily journal where you log your progress, thoughts, plans, and other related ideas
to your goal. An example diary would be "Today I started saving up $5/week towards buying my tickets next January."
- Readings - these are website links you need to help you with your goal. An example would be an online PDF
that explains the areas you need to visit the most in Paris. It could also be valuable resources to share with the other
users in your goal.
- Users - the significance of engaging family, friends, and other goal-setters cannot be emphasized enough.
This allows you to invite users who are already in Vervo or text/email people who you want to join your goal. The power of
of having more people in your goal could be so powerful to give you a push towards your goal.
- Reminders - these are built to help you remeber what needs to be done at certain times.
Say you are setting off to your trip to paris, you can setup reminders to send you a notification to your flight checkin time,
or when you need to buy tickets online.
