Have you perhaps marked something off your bucket list lately? Maybe you've driven Route 66 after planning it for 20 years or finally penned a poem about your true love.
Well, now there’s an app that lets you not only declare first-time experiences but also allows you to track goals for achieving more of them.
Welcome to Achvr.
Created by Boston College Alum Ryan Traeger and Drew Watson, Achvr is an app that allows users to discover, share and track life goals of any kind, along with allowing you to keep score of what you’ve already accomplished.
In a recent interview with the Boston Herald, Traeger said the goal is to help people “live more fulfilled lives and do more interesting stuff, ideally, for the first time.”
Traeger told the Herald the idea came when he was re-evaluating what was important in his life while in business school - not only wanting to list his goals, but wanting to act on them.
According to Achvr’s website, first-time experiences are the key to living a happier, more fulfilled life and by using Achvr, users can turn an “I want to do it” into an “I’ve done it.”
The app allows users to explore all the achievements life has to offer, gives points for the things you’ve done, while keeping track of what’s left on your list, and allows users to check the leaderboard to see how their achievement stack up against their friends’.
Not sure what goal you want to tackle next? A discovery section helps you determine which new experiences to add to your list.
And, when you complete a piece of your journey, you level up, earn titles and badges.You can find more information on Achvr by visiting its website.
