The app works by letting you set three wins for each day. Initially, I felt three was too little but after a while, I came to understand why. When you set too many goals for a day, you’ll rush through them quickly in an attempt to clear them off. Setting 3 goals enables you to have sufficient time to work on them fully and give each task 100% effort.

Winstreak enables you to track your progress over a week or a month. So whenever you feel not good enough you can see how much you’ve achieved and how far you’ve come.

3. Todoist
