Standards: Get stuck on repeat

For a few years now I’ve been working with systems to make better habits. WeHaveStandards, Daytum, Doug’s DID and more are aimed at increasing your awareness of how successful you are at repeating tasks until they become second nature. These systems can range from a folded piece of paper to paid apps and all take slightly different approaches to the problem.

Standards is my own little foray into the genre, and it’s based on a few basic (proven) principles:

  • Habits are things that you do, not things that you avoid doing
  • They take an average of 66 days to form
  • Repetition is key
  • It’s okay to miss a day every once in a while

Try it out, and I’d love to hear your thoughts about it (email me or @interstateone)
