Thank you for sharing! I'm actually the dev so it's awesome to see someone posting it here!
EDIT: Here's a link for everyone asking: 7 Weeks - Google Play
Just went through a similar open period. So he is some things I did.
Establish a good evening and morning routine
Figure out which habits you want and make notes/phone reminders/anything to make sure you do them until they turn into autopilot habits
Read books on anything that might even casually interest you. Maybe you'll find something you like and it will turn into a hobby
Exercise and eat right
But there is a sea of things you can do, this is just what I focused on. Goodluck!
I know that feeling. Most people don't think about it because it's usually what happens naturally when you grow up (or they don't care at all which is another problem).
I used to believe I would turn into a robot if I became more "efficient." But it did not happen. I'm still myself but I do what I like more efficiently.
Instead of playing stupid games on my phone (the glorified timers full of IAPs), I only keep the good games (RPGs...) Instead of reading stupid stuff all around the web, I listen to audio books or read ePubs. At work, I can focus on solving real problems instead of being stuck with small problems that can be automated.
Everything is better (but sometimes more difficult) if you focus on the useful stuff. It's like becoming a millionaire: you still have the same dreams but with more money, you don't turn into a robot if you win the lottery. Well, it's the same with being better.
Of course you can still have fun or waste your time, but you can do that too in a fun way. Play real RPGs instead of work, listen to new music instead of the same old bands, ... Enjoy life! And you can do a lot more than you think every day/week.
I don't personally care about my past (even if I still have a thousand things to improve). I only try not to waste my time with stupid stuff that I may regret later.
On Android, I use the /r/theXeffect method with the application 7 weeks and the Pomodoro method with the application Clockwork Tomato. It helps me a lot at work and in my activities.
And you're not arrogant.
The app is called 7 Weeks! It's free and has a premium upgrade, but since I started the app with theXeffect you can get the upgrade for free with the code "theXeffect"! I'm the developer too so let me know if you have any questions!
7 Weeks! I'm also the developer so if you have any feedback or questions let me know! And if you're on iPhone, a version is coming soon!
I'm actually the developer for this app! The app is called 7 Weeks and is available on the Play Store here. If you have an iPhone, a version for that is coming soon! There are a lot of new features I'm adding soon so stay tuned :)
I hope you're talking about 7 Weeks! I'm also the dev so if you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know :)
And I've been promising it for a long time, but a HUGE update is finally nearing being completed. I'm aiming to release it within the next 3 weeks, or when I hit 10000 downloads. Whichever comes first!(hopefully!)
Again, don't want to steal OP's thunder, but my app, 7 Weeks is very similar and free on Android. Check it out! A lot more coming soon!
It's called 7 Weeks and I'm actually the developer. It's only for Android right now but I have iOS and a Web app coming soon! Check it out here! And feel free to let me know what you think!
7 Weeks was the first app I ever made. It was actually just to teach myself how to code/make android apps and it's actually done pretty well since releasing it.
App is called 7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker and it's amazing: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app&hl=en
NF = NoFap
After some of these cards I'm going to drop some of these habits from tracking. After two cards and almost 100 days they are now forming into daily things and I don't need to track them anymore. I will also replace psychology with general studying/reading because I'm almost done with my exams. I might add one more habit after this round, but I'll try to not add too many.
Arg blarg! I haven't been around much recently, but that's because I'm actually getting my shit together and an improvement has been not as much time on reddit!
I've been over to /r/theXeffect and have been using the 7 weeks app (thanks, /u/rbro112 !) to track my habit improvement progress. Next week I'm adding in getting up on time! I've been super slack before on getting much done, and now I'm finally seeing improvements in myself and how I manage my time, although it could still be a lot better and I get sidetracked quite a bit still. I've been going to the gym more often, doing yardwork (which almost never happened), taking Luna for walks, journaling, and trying to do stuff around the house a bit each day. Still on and off with eating right. I need to add an Xeffect thing for tracking on MFP everyday. So many things to do and improve on, and I'm pretty excited about it!
Progress is progress!
I developed a similar app called 7 Weeks, but unfortunately right now it is only for Android. Luckily though, I'm working on the iOS version, and it should be out in the next few months!
7 weeks! You create a task that you'd like to do daily, and every day you check it off. Really simple but really helpful.
seems stupid but it works - I have an app on my phone called 7 weeks and it pretty much just lets me tick off a task once i've completed it for that day. check it out it might help
not a shill i promise lol
And again I would like to recommend this wonderful app that I use for tracking my habits:
7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker
It was done by /u/rbro112 who learned Android development AND got a job with the X Effect!
I believe it's Android only but I know some people in this sub have an alternative for iOS
Definitely! Go to my website 7weeksapp.com and sign up for the newsletter to get updated when I release big features (Cloud syncing, web app, iOS, etc).
This might be cheating, but I actually just hired a trainer. I lost about twenty pounds over the last four months or so, and now that I'm basically at my goal weight--could maybe lose ten more--I want to get in really good shape. So I hired a trainer for 2 times a week for three months to see what I can accomplish. Being held accountable by a professional (and your wallet) is quite motivating.
Also, check out the "7 weeks" app. It's getting rave reviews. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app&hl=en)
I'm using 7 Weeks to track the habits. The screen is tinted because of the Twilight app which helps with preventing blue light (helps with sleep at night)
7 Weeks! I'm the developer so if you have any questions or suggestions let me know. A huge update is in Beta right now so it's about to get a lot better!
I can't really give you any specifics other than the large ones like TechCrunch, Shopify, Product Hunt, etc. Search Google for app development blogs, startup blogs and blogs/websites that are in the app's industry. And don't be discouraged by no reply. Most blogs are humongous and don't have time for apps that don't benefit them somehow in return or pay them, but even if you get one to share that could be huge for the app! Keep at it, persistence is key.
My app is 7 Weeks. It is a habit and goal tracking app. It is a very simple concept, and it is a big lacking on the features now, but I have a lot of new stuff in development right now!

And the journal for this week:
3.3. Yes. My concentration is at pretty much all time low because of dating. I need to start working on my neurotic behavior, but I don't know how... MPGHWN.
4.3. Yes. Very different psychology study today, unstructured. I read more about stuff that I am interested in than stuff that I should study. NF is giving me some serious mood swings. MPGHWN.
5.3. Yes. Continued my series of atypical psychology studies as I’m currently reading a book called ‘The Compass of Pleasure’. The first week of NF is behind me now. MPGHWN.
6.3. Yes. 15 days to exam, I'm gonna have to start reading the right books soon. Still mood swings. MPGHWN.
7.3. Yes. Date night, so limited psychology study. MPGHWN.
8.3. Yes. Met a friend so most of my time was spent on socializing. Also the dog got sick for some reason and threw up pretty much all evening and night. MPGHWN.
9.3. Yes. Finally I’m gonna start studying for the exams. MPGHWN.
I'm actually the developer of 7 Weeks, an app that I made using theXeffect. I'd love for you to check it out and give me any feedback you have on it. Also, I have a relatively large update coming within the next few days (currently in final stages) which will hopefully improve the app a lot! Check it out!
7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker. Designed to help you create and stick to daily habits.
Check out the subreddit: /r/theXeffect
I wasn't even aware it's called like this, just used it instinctively and did a cross on my calendar whenever I didn't do a certain thing in the day. Anyways 7 Weeks is more what I was looking for. Thank you.
I've been getting on with 7 Weeks, which lets you log habits through the app and a handy widget. :) The free version works fine and is ad free if I remember right!
HabitBull is on Android as well.
7 Weeks works fine for me.
Basically just look for counters/habit and goal trackers and the X-effect. Should give you results of that kind. Can't really give any more concrete suggestions since I tend to stick to the aforementioned ones or pen and paper. You're probably better off trying different ones and seeing which ones fit you best.
Congrats on that nice big number! You've got lots of great changes to celebrate.
As far as establishing habits and routines, 7weeks is my favorite app. An SD friend suggested it, and I like the simplicity. I've currently got 14 days on my meditation streak.
Not very disciplined. Only thing that works is forcing a routine to the point it becomes habit. Tend to get distracted by new ideas and have very fluctuating bouts of will power.
I have reminders everywhere to try keep me on track. Using the 7 Weeks app helps.
For my habits I use 7 Weeks on Android. There are a lot of apps like this one on both Android and iOS.
There is the /r/theXeffect subreddit for that (and a famous comment for the back story).
7 Weeks is what helped me with this. Great app that lets you work on small goals every day. The dev just added a premium version, too. For two bucks, I'm loving it!
Not sure if you're looking for advice regarding exercise: start small, build the foundation daily over a few weeks and then set higher goals:
On the mental side, try and realize that you're doing this for yourself, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks when they see you exercising. IMO it should be a personal journey rather than 'I guess this is what people do', or, 'I want to look good for others'. You know, health, and stuff.
Edit: Throw in some accountability w/ 7 Weeks Habit / Goal Tracking App
I don't want to take OP's thread for my app, but I should mention I have one right now! It's called 7 Weeks! It's a very similar concept, but allows you to only track for 49 days unfortunately. The good thing is that within the next 49 days, I will have a huge update out that allows you to go for however long you wish! /u/JaitrousOxide I also just sent you a PM, check it out!
I really recommend tracking them. Just write stuff on paper and track your progress. There are also many Android apps for tracking your habits, I use this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app&hl=en
App is called 7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker:
Journal for last week:
26.3. Yes. Finished before ice hockey and few beers. MPGHW.
27.3. Yes. Might be hangover or lack of sleep, but I’m not very happy at the moment. MPGHW.
28.3. Yes. Met a friend which took most of the day. Writing was a stub. MPGHW.
29.3. Yes. Finished early because I'm meeting a friend later. Didn't sleep much last night. MPGHWN.
30.3. Yes. Moving and dating day again, so my schedule is quite tight. I’m really, really tired. MPGHWN.
31.3. Yes. Psych study was way too short and meditation was too hasty. Need to step up. MPGHWN.
1.3. Yes. No problems today because of no distractions. Gonna sleep early and do a proper morning meditation tomorrow. MPGHWN.
Anything really. Want to lose weight? Make it a habit to work out every day. Want to learn Spanish? Make it a habit to learn a bit every day. Want to develop a website or app? Make it habit to work on it every day.
/u/rbro112 made it his goal to develop an app and he made an app to track your X's.
7 Weeks! I developed it using the X effect method! If you have an Android device, go download it! If you have an iOS app, I'm working on the app right now and I'm hoping to get it done relatively soon!
Thank you! Also, here is a link to the Play Store download page. I am almost done with an update so if you download in the next few days you will hopefully have the newest version!
I'd suggest /r/thexeffect
They have an official Android app listed in the sidebar:
It's a great mechanism for turning a new habit into a sustainable routine.
My guidance would be to ensure you define tangible and specific habits that are binary yes/no, and not fluid.
Forsure! Hm, can't think of any features off the top of my head, but have you looked at 7 Weeks for inspiration? It has a few nifty features but maybe you'll notice something you want that 7 Weeks doesn't have and you'll think of new features.
The app is 7 weeks : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app
It's a good app, simple and efficient.
But I'm trying another to get better stats on my progress: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rstudioz.habits
> Develop a new habit or goal or break a bad habit. Based on Charles Duhigg's bestselling book, "The Power of Habit" and the X effect method of completing goals, 7 Weeks combines the two and creates an ultra simple strategy of completing one day of your habit/goal at a time.
Created by a redditor in the /r/theXeffect sub:
Google calendar (obviously). The 7 weeks app has helped me tremendously at staying on top of things I need to do every day. This is the first time I've taken my meds, given my dog meds, flossed, and worked out on a regular basis. But you have to have that motivation to use it. It is just an extra nudge of accountability and tracking.
7 Weeks, here's the link:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app
It has been helpful for me, I like being able to remind myself throughout the day as well. So far so good. I hope it helps!
Checking in! Very excited to make this habit permanent. I'm using the 7 Weeks app to track my NoFap, NoFapWar, and Mindfulness Club streaks.
Yes! If anything, getting outside for just an hour or so a day can do wonders for your well-being. Also, this is random, but check it out (I'm using it and it's awesome). Some kid from GA Tech made this app called "7 weeks" which is a habit tracker, it helps you make (or break) habits through updates/tracking etc.....Start some good habits! Like the dog walking and working out. Or, try to break some bad ones! Here ya go: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ryan.brooks.sevenweeks.app&hl=en
Belly fat is my worst enemy.
If I may make a suggestion, I'd want you to take a look at the /r/theXeffect.
One of the apps that may help you is - this
Or a physical calender!
Sounds interesting. Instead of a continuous experiment I think it would benefit the community more if we were to collect data from a large sample of users with an app like 7 Weeks over a certain period of time and then make different graphs.
I'm sure a lot of fapstronauts would willingly share it and it would give everyone good motivation to continue!
I used to use Rewire (which is okay) but I switched to 7 weeks because the design is better.
After searching a bit I found that Memrise seems to continuously have this issue and that it affects many people. Most of the time the streak doesn't come back, so in order not to feel demotivated when it happens again, I will at least have another visual to see my progress.
So basically the idea is that you're developing a habit and checking off the days where you're actually following through with the end goal of a "gift" to yourself. The timeframe for this is 49 days (7 weeks of 7 days). The x's represent days where you've followed through. Just having a checklist like this may motivate one to follow through on their goals. It's a motivation/tracking method.

I'll come back at night to check my dailies. Good luck everyone.
Huh that's strange. Here is a direct link to it.
Maybe it can help you, it is an awesome app:
and bonus, it has a motivating history behind:
PS: Sorry for my bad English, actually improve it is my main goal.
It's called 7 weeks, link on the sidebar but, just for you, here you go
7 Weeks. It’s an app made by someone from the sub (info in the sub sidebar).
7 Weeks! I'm the developer too so let me know of any feedback you have!
The 7 Weeks app in the sidebar.
The way I got through it was completely by accident. I never thought I could be happy again, so I decided I'll just take drugs until I eventually commit suicide. Ended up taking LSD a few months ago which completely changed my outlook on life and my perspective. At first it was very scary and for a few minutes I even thought I was dying. Then I came to the realisation that I don't actually want to die... I just wanted to stop living the way I was. It helped me work through lots of issues I had, and figure out a plan to fix some of them. Here are a couple things I learned and a few things I have implemented.
What has to be fulfilled before I feel healthy?
The rules/beliefs I had: I have to go to the gym at least 3 times a week and exercise daily. I have to be slim and people must find my body attractive. I have to eat healthily at all times. I have to have a healthy sleep schedule.
The rules/beliefs I now have or am striving towards: I do at least 1 push up every day, I have to eat 1 piece of fruit every day, I have to have at least 2 glasses of water every day.
Since I've implemented all of the above, I have felt much better about myself. I've broken my goals down so now they're almost impossible not to achieve (like doing 1 pushup a day for example), so now I don't feel like a failure all the time. I feel like I'm actually accomplishing something. This took my a while to type out, so I hope this helps someone or at least points them in the right direction :)
TL;DR; I've started journaling so that I can reflect on my day with gratitude which makes me feel better about myself. I've started to get disciplined and am starting to enjoy doing things that are good for me. I've identified some of my limiting beliefs and excuses and as a result I've stopped denying myself of positive emotions. I've broken my goals down so now they're almost impossible not to achieve. Never stop trying.
Edit 2: I encourage you to head on over to r/theXeffect and create your first card. Here's what my cards looked like 2 weeks ago. The app I use for my cards is called 7 Weeks
Looks like 7 Weeks
7 weeks is a habit tracker though not related to Orange Mind. 7 weeks is based on /r/theXeffect
It is one of the nicest looking ones, highly recommend it.

Thanks! Here it is. Working on the iOS version!
7 Weeks! I'm actually the developer. Unfortunately it's only for Android right now but an iOS version is in the works!
It's called 7 Weeks. Pretty simplistic and you can set it up so that it reminds you to check off your day

Made by /u/rbro112
I think its called 7 Weeks
Looks like 7 Weeks.
I am sorry you are feeling this way, this habit is very difficult to resist, so please don't be too hard on yourself, you are not alone... Just know that it can get better if you make a plan and a conscious effort to stop. I don't think it will go away by itself (at least it didn't in my case until I created a strategy).
Magnifying mirrors are evil, it's incredibly difficult to resist them, so please do get rid of it.
Since you are also picking on your shoulders, it looks like getting rid of the mirror won't help completely - this subreddit has already posted a lot of good advice on how to help with picking, but couple of things I found particularly useful:
Create a progress chart - mark every day without picking and try to get the longest streak. E.g. this android app is very useful, and you can set multiple notifications a day to remind you of your commitment. Aim at a short streak first, say 3 days - it should be enough to heal sufficiently to reduce triggering you. Once you heal completely, it should be easier to keep it that way.
Hide mirrors or don't switch on light in the bathroom. You can use blue tack to cover a mirror with paper and then remove a piece of paper every time you put on make up.
Recognize your triggers and find a way of stopping them. E.g. if being in a bathroom ends with picking, always walk into a bathroom focusing on non-picking and your current streak. If you get into a trans in your room picking on your shoulders, try to wear clothing that makes it difficult to access them or find a way of breaking the trans (as soon as you recognize the trans, get up and go to the kitchen to get a snack).
Skin picking is a manifestation of an underlying stress, so try to find another way of releasing the stress. Different people will find different things, personally I found this useful.
7 Weeks! I'm actually the dev, so if you have questions, let me know!
Found it. It's called 7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker.
7 weeks :)
> failure, disappointment, loneliness, lack of social life, depression, minimalism, problems, human emotions
I'm sure you can come up with a million ideas using just those words:
7 Weeks It's in the sidebar as well.
Works on the same system as /r/thexeffect
This helped me make flossing a habit.
Edit: Check out /r/theXeffect too.
Check out /r/thexeffect they have app there for this kinds thing
It's the app in the sidebar. It's called 7 Weeks.
Great attitude, there's so many different avenues to explore to work on yourself. Here's my suggestions on where to start, worst case scenario you'll be in the same situation:
Seek out knowledge and smile lots, and good luck friend.
Here are some options, though they focus on creating a habit, from /r/thexeffect. Might be close to what you're looking for!
Android: 7 Weeks - Habit & Goal Tracker
Web: Shuffle My Life
Web: Forty Nine Days
7 Weeks! I'm also the developer so let me know of any questions you may have!
My app, 7 Weeks has 2 widgets. Enter the code "thexeffect" to get them for free!
A perfect tool for creating daily habits. It was made for the /r/theXeffect subreddit which I also recommend
Here's a link just in case :) 7 Weeks
Here is a link to the app!
It's called 7 Weeks. I believe it's currently only on Android, but it's a fantastic app!
App looks like 7 Weeks, for Android.
Are you wanting one app that does both?
For tasks and tracking productivity, ToDoist is amazing.
They've baked on tracking your productivity into the app:
As for habit tracking, I can't say enough good things about /r/TheXEffect and the 7x7 method of establishing long term habits. There is even an official app that makes following it easy.
For Android we have 7 Weeks which closer aligns to TheXEffect.
7 Weeks was developed by an graduate of TheXEffect.
Not OP but here is an app with a similar layout.
I used 7 Weeks for a while, check it out.
Here's a direct link to the app mentioned.
Looks ok but you have to upgrade to paid version to use the widgets.
7 Weeks for Android. You can find more info on the sidebar. It's a great app, highly recommend :)
This app and the people at /r/theXeffect/ are what you need.
<em>7 weeks</em> :)
Thank you, man! Everything you need(everyone in this sub), I will be here.
I always go back to 7 weeks.
7 Weeks! I'm the developer too!
7 Weeks! I'm the developer. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
I went ahead and tried out your app and I really like it. Feels, looks and works very smoothly. I also tried your upgrade flow and it definitely could be improved which in turn will make you more money!
To improve it, you should migrate the upgrade to be native in your own app. If users don't have to leave to upgrade or switch apps to the Play store and do it all directly inside your app, your conversion rate will increase even more.
The way I have it is have just an upgrade activity that is very visible to the users. In my case, it is a large header prompting the upgrade in the top of my navigation drawer. To increase my conversions even more, I'll be adding dialogs and prompts here in the next few days to nudge users a bit more (but not too much to deter them). Once they click the upgrade button in these prompts, they're taken to an activity that displays swipeable pages of some of the features they'll get if they upgrade along with the ability to share for a discount. Once they click the purchase button, I trigger a flag in the app to tell if they're premium or not.
When the user starts my app now, a "splash" screen is shown (but usually it is gone so fast the user doesn't even notice it) that will check the flag I set once they upgraded along with querying Google Play Services to check if they purchased it. This double check makes sure users will still get the upgrade even if they've lost the app or reset their phone and purchased it before.
Now this way makes a lot of sense and it the easiest to implement, but it isn't the best practice. The way you really should handle it is by having two separate build flavors in your build.gradle file, premium and free. Upgrading switches the app to the premium flavor. You may already be doing this, but if you've never used advanced gradle tactics like this, the first way may be the best. I'm currently working on switching it to build.gradle flavors since it'll be easier in the long run and a much better practice, but if you want to implement it like I did originally, it works and that's all that matters!
Feel free to check out how I implement the premium upgrade:
7 Weeks for Android
7 Weeks! I'm the developer too, so let me know if you have any questions or feedback!
First week completed!.
Meditation in the morning is fantastic and the headspace program is a good guide when starting. I'll see how I progress later on and what works for me more.
Funny stories: fell asleep a bit after my meditation on Tuesday. Still counts tho! Also meditating while keeping my guard post at the end of a nightshift was ridiculous. But the habit rules the day.
Exercise - after killing my quads on Monday I did different variations of the Nerdfitness routine, by letting my leg muscles chill out while exercising other muscle groups more. I stuck to the 20 minutes even when I had a night shift. On Thursday I had a sort of cheat day - I walked for 8 km for an hour and a half at a brisk pace with a friend: since it felt like a good exercise (with the bonus of a rest day sort of) but I didn't want to feel like a total cheat I beat out 5 minutes of my chosen routine to feel like I still did something related to my promise.
Sticking points so far -
It's really easy to meditate in the morning after I've had breakfast and I feel relatively awake.
I haven't been exercising in the morning yet. Mostly in the afternoon, evening. I have to choose a time I can stick to otherwise this won't build as a habit and will still require the same willpower each and every-time I choose
I've been noticing that these habits have helped e maintain a better focus on my studies as I am now deep into finals season of my masters. To early to tell if its correlated but we will see as I get to week two. The real challenge will be week three-four.
Apps used in the screenshots:
7 Weeks - Great and simple, fantastic application of the Xeffect.
Rewire - AMAZING, everything I wanted from a habit app. Reminds me a lot of Lift before it became Coach.me (sell outs). If it ever changes to something different I simple won't upgrade and keep using it as it is.
It's in the sidebar
This couldn't have come in a better time. I'll probably edit and add more things and detali to my post because I think that a great deal of introspection is needed if I'm going to succeed. Also, my goals aren't only fitness related, I really need a 180º change.
Overall R17 Goals
Sprint 1 Goals and plans
Becoming an early riser: I'll wake up at 6:00 AM from monday to friday and before 12:00 PM the weekends if I went out the last night. This is easier said than done of course, that's why I'm going to do it gradually and wake up each day earlier until I reach 6:00 AM.
Meditation: Either in the mornings or at night, I shall meditate at least 20 minutes. It's not a hard thing to do but it requires a bit of willpower to set those 20 minutes a day to meditate.
Reading: this is easy. While commuting or before going to bed I'll read at least 30 minutes per day.
Gym: I'm already going three times per week to the gym but from time to time I miss a workout because "I don't feel like it" so my goal is to avoid missing without a decent justification a workout.
Cardio: because it helps with stress and with the cutting process, I'll do a bit of cardio (probably HIIT) in my non-lifting days, at least two sessions per week.
Cut: before starting counting calories I'd like to establish a healthy relationship with food and quit stress-eating for good. I'll keep it simple: three meals a day, no sugar, no refined carbs and fewer carbs in general and more protein and fat.
Nails: this is going to be a though one but my hands look really gross. I found out that if I put a bit of moisturizer in my hands, I bite my nails way less because my nose catches the smell of it and I remember that I shouldn't be doing that. Also I don't really like the taste of moisturizer hahaha... For everything else I guess it's pure willpower and reminding myself daily that I'm not supposed to bite my nails.
Porn: This is a big one too. Guess I just need to install a filter in my computer/phone and be stoic about it.
College: I'll stop ditching classes and use my free time to study in the library.
Journaling/Planning: This shouldn't be too difficult, I'll just take a bit of time each night to reflect on what has happened that day and maybe write some lines about it. Also, I'll plan the next day, setting up things I want to get done. I'll probably use Evernote for the planning and a Word document in my computer for the journaling.
Holy crap! That's a lot of things to manage in 30 days but man... I've been so close to have it all handled and each time I've lost my momentum after a few days. I know how good life feels with all these aspects of my life controlled so I guess an additional goal would be to keep the momentum I've mentioned and trascend to a superior state.
By the way, I'll keep track of my habits with this cool app, i'm sure some of you already know it.
Good look and I'll see you guys in the sign-up thread!
