Google announced the launch of a new Google Calendar feature called Goals, which lets users add personal goals, which Calendar will actually find time in your schedule for to help you accomplish them.

Google uses the example of a goal of running three times a week. In the video, a similar goal for yoga is illustrated.

You can set a goal by answering questions about how often you want to do something and what the best time is. Calendar will then look at your schedule and find windows of time.

"Goals aren't easy—especially when the unexpected comes up—but Calendar can help you adjust in a number of important ways. For example, Calendar will automatically reschedule if you add another event that's a direct conflict with a goal," says product manager Jyoti Ramnath.

You can also defer a goal at any time, and Calendar will make time for it later," Ramnath adds. "Finally, Calendar actually gets better at scheduling the more you use it—just defer, edit or complete your goals like normal, and Calendar will choose even better times in the future."

The feature comes as Google celebrates Google Calendar's tenth birthday.
