Yes, we did it! We have finally upgraded the Windows version of the application too. Moreover, we have tried to make their look and feel as close as it could be. So, please welcome Wheel Of Life 2 for Windows:
Most significant innovations (same as for Mac OS X):
Concerning the upgrade. None of us know why this has happened, but we made this upgrade available free of charge. Some time in the future we will charge for upgrading applications, but this time you can simply download the application and enter your registration data.
You can buy Wheel Of Life at the same low price of $19.95.
We have redesigned the application and took into account lots of your wishes. The coolest thing first, and that's appearance. The new version is significantly different from the previous one, see for yourself:
No more need to open a bunch of windows as it used to be. Your entire plan, all your areas and goals are now at your fingertips. Usability testing has revealed the efficiency of achieving goals increasing while the time spent on the planning decreasing by much. Well, we are just happy to know that.
The new nice appearance is not the only innovation. You used to be able to manage just one project, now the application allows you to manage as many projects as you find necessary. Thus, the application could serve you not only as a personal efficiency tool, but we will cover this later. We are going to publish a number of articles on other ways of utilizing the Task Organizer software and tell you how you can take advantage of the application in your business, when building a house, etc.
Another important innovation that extends the capabilities of the software is removal of restrictions on the number of areas per project. So, if 8 areas were insufficient for managing your goals, it’s no longer a problem to have more.
And the last but not the least, a new incredibly efficient feature, “Random goal”. If you aren’t sure which goal is the best one to pursue, as all of them are important and necessary, try relying on luck. The program will automatically propose you a randomly picked goal. You are to decide whether to drop everything else and tackle that goal right off or doubt on; however, our feedback suggests this method has shown its best side. Trust us, just pressing "^+Cmd+R" can lead you to success in the real life much faster.
Download the application, work on yourself and enjoy life!
Why the majority of our tasks are not completed and are simply postponed to the next day? Plenty of articles, time management trainings and motivators continually assert us: we simply set too many goals. Many of us at Rylstim face this constantly. So, we decided to figure out a way to complete 100% of our tasks every day.
The solution appeared to be quite simple. We have combined our Wheel of Life application and an interesting rule known as Rule of Three. You can look up further information on Rule of Thee on the Net, but briefly we suggest that for each area of your wheel of life you set only 3 goals to be achieved per day.
Naturally, those shouldn't be the tasks of the "Put the left sock on", "Put the right sock on" series… Such minor tasks could be set aside in a separate schedule, which you could name, for example, "To Do Today". Here you should specify 3 major tasks that are required for improving your life in this area.
But that’s not all. Next, we suggest that out of these 3 goals in each area of your Wheel of Life you choose only one goal and set its priority to "High". No other high-priority goals should accompany it in this area. The rest can have "Normal" or "Low" priority – that doesn’t matter as long as you have 1 goal (just 1!), which is the most important.
You have achieved all the goals set in your plan for today and watching the fondest result "100%", and the sun is still high. Lucky you! If you still have the desire to further improve your life today, you can go ahead and set new goals, even regardless of any rules, just any way you like. But tomorrow… Tomorrow is a new day, which carries new 3 goals for each area.
Good luck in achieving your goals!

A light, but still pleasing update: now you can change the application background color.
We have picked 8 more application color themes, so now you can paint the application to the color you like the best.
Another update - added percentage progress indicator for goals set for each area of life and the overall percentage indicator for the entire project.
This update makes your work with projects and tracing areas of life much simpler and more convenient than it had been.
We've also fixed a serious error that occurred when attempting to rename a category.
Registered users can update Wheel of Life totally free of charge. If you still haven't purchased the software, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to download and use it free of charge for 20 days.
