« [Dec 15] How to how to
Don't Break The Chain

Big BaDa Boom - 1 to 100 [Jan 11] »

Earlier this year ChefQuix told me about a technique used By Jerry Seinfeld to motivate himself to work on his comedy act everyday. With New Year’s Resolutions forming in our heads I thought you might enjoy this habit forming life hack:

  • Obtain a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall.
  • Get a big red magic marker.
  • Choose a daily task you wish to make a habit.
  • For each day that you accomplish your task put a big red X over that day on the wall calendar.

“After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.” [via]
