Unifiq has introduced the first public preview of Aspire
(http://www.unifiq.com/aspire/), their new “life-goal and
brainstorming” utility for Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”). It provides a
visual workspace to brainstorm, prioritize, review, refine, track and
help improve your life goals and long-term plans.

Aspire lets you work with three basic concepts: Goals, Obstacles and
Solutions. Goals are the big things in a person’s life they want to
achieve. Obstacles are what prevent a person from achieving those
goals, such as missing skills, knowledge, resources, even fear of
failure. Solutions are strategies to help a person overcome those
same obstacles.

Aspire isn’t a daily task manager, though it can serve as a
complement to any such system. Before diving into tasks, schedules
and details, Aspire helps remind the user of the big picture so they
spend time on what’s truly important, according to the folks at

For a limited time, Aspire is available at the pre-launch price of
US$19 (the regular price is $39) for a single-user license. A fully
functional, 30-day demo trial is available Unifiq offers a 30-day
money back guarantee.
