Sciral Consistency is a task management tool that differs from other similar programs because it's intended to help you tracking repetitive tasks that usually take a few days to be completed.

Every time you create a new task, the program asks for the start date and the given range of period to complete it. Once in your list, you can mark the task completion each day and then the task range expands automatically. The process looks somewhat messy at the beginning, but you'll get the knack of it in no time. Plus, there's a very complete documentation that explains it thoroughly.

Sciral Consistency is meant to be used on a individual basis, but I personally think it wouldn't hurt to add some collaborative options, so that you can also use the program to track group tasks and projects involving more people.

Manage and track frequent repetitive tasks easily.

Calendars are great for keeping track of tasks where you need to coordinate with others by setting fixed times and intervals.

To-do lists are great for keeping track of tasks that you will do once, and that you need to keep in order by priority.

But there's another class of activities for which neither traditional calendars nor to-do lists are optimal. If you already use a calendar and a to-do list, you're probably trying to wedge these tasks into those tools, without realizing that they really call for a new kind of tool. Sciral Consistency is that tool.

The kinds of activities or tasks you use Sciral Consistency for share a number of attributes:

  • They don't have deadlines or rigid time intervals associated with them.
  • In order to gain and retain their benefits, you must perform them on a regular basis over a long period of time.
  • The ideal amount of time that elapses between completions of a particular task are unique to that task. To gain the maximum benefit you shouldn't do them too frequently or infrequently.
  • They can be carried out by you with minimal or no coordination with other people.
  • They are often “routine” tasks for which you have not firmly established a habit of carrying them out as second nature.
  • They are (in the words of Stephen Covey) "important, but not urgent."

In addition, feedback on how consistently you're performing each of these tasks is critical to evaluating how well you're supporting your core values on a long-term basis.
