Inspire! is a powerful tool to help you prioritize putting first things first in your weekly planning. If you’ve done your planning right, you should already have one or more Roles and/or Goals entered into Inspire!, and have at least one or more objectives (items you entered in the planning screen) created from your Roles/Goals.

When you create an Objective, you will see that you have the ability to create tasks under it. These tasks can then be linked to events on the Calendar from your provider of choice (any Calendar you choose to sync with your device is available in Inspire!). Here’s how to properly sync to your Calendar:

 

1.     Navigate to Planning

2.     Tap on the calendar icon to switch to the scheduling view

3.     Scroll to a task that you want to schedule in the right-hand pane

4.     Scroll the calendar in the left-hand pane so that you can see the time slot where you want that task scheduled

5.     Press and hold on the task until it lifts up, and continuing to hold your finger down, drag it onto the appropriate time slot, and let go. Tip: you will see the time slots highlight as you pass over them to indicate where it will land when you let go.

6.     You will now see an information sheet that is pre-filled with the task name along with the time range set to the 30-min slot you dropped it in. Make any adjustments you like, then tap Done to finish.

For example, let’s say you have a goal to “Lose 10 pounds in 5 weeks.” With that goal in mind, you may decide to set an objective of going to the gym three times this week. You would then create an objective with that title and add three tasks under it—all titled “Go to Gym.” Next, switch to Calendar mode and drag each “Go to Gym” task onto your calendar according to the days and dates you plan to go.
