As much as I would love to think of myself as a spontaneous person, I have learned that I do my best and am my most productive when I have strong routines and habits.
I wanted to share a great app that I discovered at the beginning of this year for habit tracking. You can find it on the App Store as “Productive habits & daily goals tracker”. I use the free version, but you can upgrade for more functionality. It is a very simple, clean interface that is easy to use and appealing to look at. You establish the habits that you want each day, they can be as few or as as many as you like (in keeping with my word “simplify” for this year, I just have three, one in the morning, afternoon and evening) and that’s it! You can set notifications or reminders if you like. It takes two seconds to open the app and swipe to the right to check off your habit. It then keeps a “life log” that you can see a calendar at a glance showing the number of days you completed all of your habits, and the days you partially completed them.
For me, it is a great boost to see visually that I am completing all or most of my habits more days than not. The idea is that the habits I am trying to build will become second nature and part of my regular routine without prompting.
This would be great for reinforcing daily habits like, “1 Hour of Prospecting”, or “Write 2 Personal Notes”, or even “Workout”. I am a big believer in developing strong habits and this has been a great tool for me.
Do you have an app that you love? What are some of the daily habits or routines that you utilize in your business?
