Short details Focus on tasks related to goals and life values. LifeTick is designed to work for individuals or for life coaches training individuals.

LifeTick is good for tracking and focusing on goals, but it still lacks essential GTD functionality for managing day-to-day workflow. All fields must be filled out for every task, including a due date, which means no "Someday/Maybe" no list of "Next Steps" and no "Unprocessed" list.
