Q: What is the Daily Success Checklist?
A: The Daily Success Checklist is an Android application that helps you build successful habits by allowing you to create a list of daily actions in a checklist format. By developing the habit of taking the right actions every day your goals that are supported by those actions are easier to reach.

Q: How does it help me reach my goals?
A: The Daily Success Checklist follows the “Don’t break the chain” concept attributed to Jerry Seinfeld. Everyday you complete all of your actions you receive a check mark on a calendar. Once you get a chain of check marks you gain a level of commitment to not breaking that chain of check marks. Thus, you end up completing your daily actions.

The app also comes with a sleek widget for you home screen with visual queues that remind you to do the actions on your list.

Q: Where did the idea for the Daily Success Checklist come from?
A: I was inspired to create the Daily Success Checklist after reading “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy. In that book Darren Hardy points out the need for taking consistent action everyday to achieve goals over time.

Q: How do I add a new action to my success list?
A: Touch the “+ Add” button in the upper right of the action list screen. The text for your actions goes in upper portion of the screen. You then have five tabs on the lower portion of the screen.

Main: Set priority, text style, or add a reminder alarm
Goal: Show or add a goal this action
Stats: Show statistics for this action

Q: How do I add a new goal?
A: Slide out the navigation bar and touch “Goals”. Then touch the “+ Add” button. The text for your goal goes into the upper portion of the screen.

You then have two tabs on the lower portion of the screen:

Date: Set a start and end date for the goal
Actions: Add new or existing actions to this goal

Q: How do I view and share my past results?
A: Slide out the navigation bar and touch “Historical Calendar”. Click on a date to view the action status for that day. Clicking an action brings up a calendar showing the completion status of that action.

From the historical list of actions described above click the share icon in the upper right. Choose an application to use to share your list results through like your email app.

Q: How do I remove an action or a goal?
A: From the list of goals or actions press and hold the item until the menu pops up. Choose the ‘Delete’ option.

Q : How do I edit a disabled or day shifted action?
A: From the action list screen press the day (like ‘Mon’) in the upper left of the screen to the right of the application icon. Choose ‘All’ from the menu. The list changes to show all actions including disabled actions.

Q: How do I silence the action completion sound?
A: From the main action list screen press the ‘Audio’ button in the lower left of the screen. Pressing this button toggles the completion sound on and off.

Q: What is Priority Significance?
A: Priority Significance specifies the minimum action priority level that has to be completed to earn a green check mark for the day. So, if your Priority Significance is set to ‘High’ then you have to complete all high priority actions to get a check mark for the day. If it is set to ‘Medium’ then you need to complete all medium and high priority actions to get a check mark for the day.
