Statement

The human experience when it comes to achieving goals, small and large, is one that is thoroughly understood to be beneficial, at times difficult, and disheartening when unsuccessful. Whenever we embark on this journey, there seems to be a universal truth - You will have days where it is seemingly impossible to work towards achieving that goal you have been planning, and on those days, it is a routine process that will ensure your success where your motivation falters.

In my own journey to overcome this, I have searched high and low for various productivity tools and guides. The culmination of my search is in this project; Tangible, a one part habit-tracking, productivity-guiding daily journal, and another part advertising campaign. To motivate us all to get to whatever heights we seek, while providing some introductory tools to do so.
