Editing Capability

I like this app because I like the philosophy behind its creation. I had listened to a podcast in which Gabriele Oettingen was interviewed and I was sold on the ideas and the practice of WOOP.

One thing I would love for the app to have is an editing feature to the outcome, obstacle and plan sections, as it is now, what you write is final.

Also, it would be nice to have a comment section for the % scale that measures progress, where a user can write down what steps they had taken to get to the percentage they record on their journey to accomplishing their outcome.

Really helpful...plus suggestions for f features

The app is very helpful for structuring a woop process. It is pretty easy to use and using it is very effective in building new habits. There are a couple of features that would make it even better! One is to be able to go back and edit your responses in each sectionso that the grammar is correct in the final summary. Another is the ability to add notes on how you did with that obstacle, this would really help learning from the experience for the future. All in all, thanks for a good app!

They should add an “S” step, for “self-transcending purpose

I dunno why they haven’t integrated the research from Their colleague David Yeager, which showed that people need a ‘self transcendent purpose’ to tie together all the tasks of life and to push us through the boring parts of the journey. Without this part, users will not benefit from the app or from self-regulation techniques generally. I wouldn’t given this app 5 stars but it’s lacking that key ingredient: the ‘north star’ of purpose that guides us.
