Google Calendar's latest feature can help you find time for the activities you want to do that always seem to fall by the wayside. Say, you want to start being more active or to learn a new skill or language: all you have to do is add it as a "Goal" and tell Google how often you want to exercise or study, along with the best time to do it. Calendar will then look at your schedule and figure out how to squeeze it in. It's like having a virtual coach shouting in your ear to stop procrastinating and get your ass in gear.

Thankfully, it's a lot more lenient than that PE teacher who wouldn't let you sit out his class when you're already having a full-blown asthma attack. If work or life gets in the way, you can defer a goal -- the app will find another time for it. By the way, when you add a personal goal, the app will show you various categories to choose from, but you create custom ones, as well. If you think this is the extra push you need to get you going, you may want to update your app ASAP. The feature's now out in all languages and in all countries where the iOS and Android apps are available.
