Building Habits — Reminders & Tracking Progress

I think a lot about the habits that I want to build. Habits are something automatic. They’re muscle memory. When an action becomes a habit, you don’t have to think about it. You just do it.

There’s a bunch of activities that I want to turn into habits. I want to be consistent about reading the Bible every day, drinking more water, picking up house at the end of the night, and reading a least 10 pages of a physical book.

There’s a number of iPhone apps that’ll track your progress and give you reminders for building your habits that I’ve found to be really helpful. I’m currently using Productivity but I’ve also used Coach.me. I know that I’ve heard of others. They’re great!

I’ve been using Productivity for several months. First thing when I wake up in the morning is to read the bible on the He Reads Truth app. Throughout the day, I’m filling up a massive reusable water bottle. I barely think about it. ┬áNow, I need to think about what are the next habits that I want to build.

Time is a precious commodity. If we turn daily actions into habits, we can spend our time actively thinking about other things and not that.
