Do you want to develop good habits? Do you wish you had the willpower to floss everyday, and not just the week before your dentist appointment? What about getting more exercise, saving more money, reading more literature, waking up earlier or getting to bed earlier? Do you want to stop being late for work, or stop working through your lunch hour? These are simple habits that you can develop one at a time, one day at a time.
Habitude is a habit tracking application you can use to help you build good habits and eliminate bad ones. Progress monitoring is a reliable method for developing positive habits. Viewing a record of past successes can boost your willpower when you feel weak, and help you gear up for future challenges. Introduced by Benjamin Franklin and refined by Jerry Seinfeld, this technique has been gaining popularity as a personal productivity tool (Lifehacker). Developing an every-day habit harnesses the power of positive inertia and removes the ability to self-negotiate your way to failure ("If I skip today I will do X twice tomorrow").
Andy Warhol said "If you do something once it’s exciting, and if you do it every day it’s exciting. But if you do it, say, twice or just almost every day, it’s not good any more.” Use Habitude to start building positive habits today.
