We all have ideas of things we want to do better and improve in our lives. New skills, new knowledge, new habits. With each new idea we get a burst of energy, thrilled that we will finally learn to draw. But it burns out after a couple days or weeks. The 2-3 hour sessions become unsustainable and we don’t have the dedication to continue. The desire to learn and better ourselves is still there, but we lack the follow through.
Commit is an iPhone app that helps you form habits to learn or practice something every day. It is based on the idea that if you build up a chain of days in a row you do something, not wanting to break that chain will become a motivation to keep going. If you have exercised 25 days in a row, how hard can it be to do it one more day?
I’ve published a blog post every Tuesday for 20 weeks in a row. Not wanting to break this chain is a motivation to keep writing.
