NEW YORK (MainStreet) — There’s certainly no shortage of online services that help people track their progress toward achieving a personal goal, but one new website adds a special twist to this concept: charts, lots of charts.

RoutineTap helps users follow through on their goals by letting them create simple questionnaires to answer each day, which can range from “Did I work out today” to “Did I bring my own lunch to work today?” From there, users can include follow-up questions for themselves and decide whether the answers should be in a multiple choice or yes-and-no format, or both.

Once the questionnaires are set up, the real fun begins. RoutineTap uses the answers to each of these questions to create detailed bar graphs and pie charts to help you visualize your progress toward fulfilling a goal, as you can see in the example above. Each of these charts represents one month of the year.

The service isn’t perfect – we would love to see more options to customize the charts that it uses – but if you want to keep track of yourself and be honest about achieving your resolutions, there’s no better way to do it than with charts. After all, charts never lie.
