What's New

This release adds a customizable start day for the week. A huge percentage of the world thinks the week starts on Sunday. And that's how our app worked until today.

Now you can also set your starting day as Monday which is what I and a lot of Europeans think it should be. Or, you can also set the start day to be Saturday which is common in the Middle East and Northern Africa. We still default to Sunday.

You may be wondering when this matters? Mostly this matters for targets. You set a target for how often you want to check in each week. That target resets at the beginning of each week.

For example, my conception of the week goes back to when I was a serious runner. I'd try to run at least six days per week ending with a long run on Sunday. That way of thinking was so ingrained in me that I'd always be confused when all of my Coach.me targets suddenly reset each Sunday. To me, Monday is the start of the week and the Sunday long run is the end of the week.

To set a custom start of the week go into settings. We default to Sunday still, but you can pick Monday or Saturday. If another day becomes globally popular, then we'll add that too.

Having the week start on Sunday was always my least favorite design decision in the app. I'm a Coach.me power user--I use it every single day. And I'm the CEO. And I'm the longest tenured employee. How did I lose this fight?

I actually remember it well. We were at a white board in a temporary office on Mission Street in San Francisco. And a person, who shall remain nameless but who was funding the entire endeavor, told me I was weird for wanting the day to start on Monday.

Technically he was right. Sunday is the most common start. And we were in a prototyping mindset which meant that we didn't want to spend extra time taking into account every individual person's preferences.

So I went along with it. And we never had a chance to revisit until just now. I'm so happy and I know that 1/3 of you will be as well.

Here are a handful of success stories from our community:

“Wish I would have met my coach Will years ago! I am literally 3 times more effective and productive than I used to be.” ~ Dan

“Before my coach Josh, the idea of bounding out of bed early in the morning was a dream and something I had tried and failed at for years. Josh broke it down into very simple steps. I am now sleeping better, getting up early consistently and the biggest breakthrough is getting up is now easy.” ~Jess

“Without being able to press that 'Send Message' button to my coach every day, I am certain I would not have come as far with my writing. With that momentum I managed to write 500 words nearly every day, started a blog, and am still going. It's been only 3 months, and I feel like a new person.” ~ Alina

“I got a promotion literally two weeks after hiring my business coach. Now I have a much bigger say over product and strategy. I feel like a leader and people treat me accordingly!” ~ Graham

“Dorothy has been so inspirational to me and gives me the reasoning and a solution to any problem I have had on the diet. With her coaching I lost 20 pounds and now have the habits in place to lose the next 20 on my own. I might keep her around however, just for the support and occasional kick in the butt.” ~ Estela

“I get more done before my family wakes up than I used to in an entire day. After countless attempts to do this on my own, hiring George as a coach was the lever I needed to shift my productivity fast forward. I've been successful because George helped me create a morning routine that works specifically for me.” ~ Jim
