Bellingham, WA, July 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Bellingham-based web development company, Big Fresh, is pleased to announce the completion of a web-based app modeled after best-selling book The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan
The book, which has been featured on more than 40 bestseller lists, teaches readers to answer the question “what is the one thing you can do today to achieve your goals?” By focusing on good habits, readers are encouraged to do one thing everyday to help get the most out of life. Example of goals include improving physical health, cultivating key relationships, and achieving spiritual balance.
The app, which is free at app.the1thing.com, provides a portal in which users create habits and goals, set-up reminders, and assign an accountability team. “The challenge we were presented with,” says Austin Teer, Lead Front End Engineer at Big Fresh, “was to take the core concepts and ideas behind the book and translate those into a working application with a simple user experience. Our process included a discovery phase, strategically architected wire-frames, and many brainstorming sessions.” The app is viewable on any device including PCs, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
In conjunction with the launch of the app, one of the authors of the book, Mega Real Estate Agent Jay Papasan, will host a free event, open to the public, at The Mt. Baker Theatre in Bellingham, Washington on July 18th from 6:00 to 8:30pm. Jay will discuss the core concepts behind the book including how to be more productive and how to gain more satisfaction from life. People interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at theonething.eventbrite.com.
