Habitica Piggybank Projects
Let’s say some of the things I want to do would be to write two eBooks, strengthen my ankles for better tricking, create more playlists from my music library and expand my music tastes, make a master tricking sampler that is a remix of all the footage I’ve ever captured since I started years back, organize my computer files once and for all, get better at keyboard shortcutting, get tanned, get a new job, and save up some money for something big. If I want to do this stuff I'll have to work on them all. Duh. Progress in some of the things we want is particularly influenced heavily by daily, small efforts. The things mentioned in the first paragraph above are all good examples. With these goals in particular, if I worked on each of them 5 minutes per day then my chances for success would be better than if they were just kept on some lofty "one day" list. Here’s how it works in the real world though: when I intend to put in only 5 minutes toward something, I might only work on it for 5 minutes, but this start creates an opportunity for getting on a winning streak, I might be on a roll and work for hours. Everyday I start something, and whatever takes off I go with it, but everyday I give each of my projects a start, one line, one stroke, one five minute moment at least. So here’s how I would set it up in Habitica This is a Daily with a difficulty of HARD so it’s rewarding, and I pick the days I wanted this to repeat.
- Everyday start as early as you can to begin tackling items off the list.
- Start with the easiest one.
- Build momentum as you go from the easiest to the hardest.
- Try to do them all within an hour. Time yourself. Time attack mode. Make it a game.
- If you're having difficulty, strip your list down to three sub-items.
