Congrats on keeping up with your tracker, so far.
Sorry to keep you lonely for quite the time. :)

I've had a lot of personal squabbles with my family, and to make it short, I'm going to resume my habits tracker here starting from tomorrow, to track some daily practices that I have found important to keep the house in order. I'll upload it on a weekly basis.

Oh don't worry about that, I'm quite comfortable here in my own personal containment thread :rofl:
Hope posting here will boost your consistency. For me it certainly helps at the moment.

Alright, back to the habits tracker...

Update for 22/6 (Mon) to 27/6 (Sat)

GOALS
Wake up 8-9AM DAILY

Achieved Mon, Tues and Sat only...

Sleep around 11.30PM DAILY
Achieved only on Mon and Tues

2X supplement intake a day
MET

1X compliments/ nice words to someone a day
Met

Bible/prayer
Done only on Mon, Tues and Wed

10:10 for Mon- Fri (an online prayer/Holy Write session on YouTube I watch with the family)
MET


Basically, after I took a break from this tracker thread, things got f*cked up.

woke up late here and there, and started slacking off.
Then more freelance work came in, and I had to nearly tear myself to pieces entertaining clients and ruffling up assignments.

To say it was a horrific experience wouldn't be enough.
For some reasons, I felt more like a cubicle rat than a Fastlaner.

So, my habits tracking for now will focus on self-recovery- just a few simple habits to help mepick up the pieces. I've finished much of my current semester by now though, save for today's credit analysis online exam and yesterday's f*cked up Enterprise Analytics assignment on R-regression for COVID.

Will still continue my freelancing, but I'm already tracking stuff that confidential to my clients lol.

Update for 29/6 (Mon) to 5/7 (Sun)

GOALS
Wake up 8-9AM DAILY

All days except Thurs

Sleep around 11.30PM DAILY
Eek mostly hit the sack between 12am-2am. Not met...

2X supplement intake a day
MET except Thurs

1X compliments/ nice words to someone a day
Met

Bible/prayer
Done only on Wed and Fri

10:10 for Mon- Fri (an online prayer/Holy Write session on YouTube I watch with the family)
Met only on Tues-Thurs

The church that organised the online talks just had its final broadcast on that 10:10 series, so I'll go back to rewatch earlier episodes on YouTube or other mini-sermons.


I'm thinking of adding a new habit to this tracker for the coming weeks- reading a chapter or pages of a business book daily. I noticed I hadn't 'sharpened the axe' for some time, which could explain why sometimes I felt close to burnout of ideas, even with regular freelance client tasks.

I've got a shit-ton to read...from marketing-specific books like Micro-Scripts,to a few finance ones (I still haven't finished Ray Dalio's Debt Crisis book and might have lost some potential profits from not knowing some stuff from the book...)

Glad to see this is still going. I'll post up my stats for the past while tomorrow if I have time.

And then there were two
I stopped posting in this thread and trying to track my habits altogether (I was also trying to do it in a journal) because I wasn't seeing any tangible results from it.

Yes, it 'felt good' to track everything, and it made me feel super important. But I thought my habits would automatically improve just by tracking them.... they didn't.

Today I barely track anything (calories and exercise). Yet I'm still able to maintain my 'good' habits like no-fap, daily exercise, waking up at 5:30 AM, etc. Of course I still have some less than perfect days, but most of the time I just do it. It's in the name: habit.

@ZF Lee @bornoim you've both been active in this thread... I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on whether this 'habit tracking' method has worked for you.

Specifically -- have you seen your habits improve because of the tracking, or because of something else?

I agree, you just get bogged down with admin.
I'd rather spend my time doing something else.

Well I've wondered myself if relying too much on such accountability systems, or maybe even relying on them at all, is just a crutch for people who can't find strong enough internal reasons, or external reasons more connected to their actual life to motivate them. If such accountability systems just serve as a placeholder, and inhibit your skill in developing those stronger reasons to improve your life, they might even be harmful in the long run. I don't know.
Anyways...

I haven't managed to establish any longterm habits.
But then establishing habits was never really my main focus I guess. It was more about monitoring how much I'm working on my goals over a longer period of time.

Personally, I don't pay much attention to my tracking at the moment and only spend like 10 minutes a week on it.
I regard it more as an additional failsafe. If things are going poorly and I barely do anything, at least I won't be able to fool myself about it.
Posting things online then adds a tiny bit of accountability that might be helpful.

I'd agree that it's counterproductive to pay too much attention on habits that you've already established. After all like you said, building habits is all about being able to do things unconsciously and automatically, so ..

Yes, they do improve. You can keep a better eye on how consistent you are.
You can also noticed quickly if something is wrong- and what might have disrupted your consistent flow of habits.

As to the what, I would suggest keeping a separate diary to mark down what may have been hitting your habits performance (e.g. in my case it was gaps in my freelancing project management and some family issues). And outline maybe 2-3 initial steps on how to deal with these abnormalities, if they could come back up again.

It's important to note that you can keep up very well with any habit, as long:
- You keep your body healthy (with good diet, rest and exercise)
-You keep your mind healthy (you read or create something useful everyday)
-You keep your socials healthy (network with good people, care for your family, etc.)
-You keep your spirituals healthy

One might say that each of them could be a habit by itself.
So I guess success in certain habits may rely on your earlier progress in other related habits.

I believe James Altucher talked on that before- he noticed most of his failures came about when one of these vital sectors was bad.

It is quite hard to master something when you're not measuring your progress or consistency.
When you become a master at it, it becomes redundant (sometime in a far far future for me :D)
