I just discovered a new app, Streaks. I’m strangely excited about it, primarily because it forces me to prioritize: what are the six most important habits to me? I want to write more describing my recent journey with habits, but I’ll save that for another time.
I’ve been doing a great job on many habits with the help of Coach.me, but the simple truth is that the flexibility of the platform enables me to over-commit - and being over-committed impacts everything, not just the superfluous things.
For me in particular, I can feel a negative impact on self-worth and motivation - so weird!
The six I’ve chosen are:
- cardio (running, swimming, biking)
- reading (long-form essay or books),
- journaling (which could be this blog)
- people (I need to be reminded)
- finish (easy to start, hard to …)
I have these habits in Coach.me too, but some of them are hidden. Streaks is iPhone-only (which is slightly annoying, given I move between iOS and macOS devices fluidly) but it does work on my watch.
This entire post feels like a giant advertisement. ;)
