Changing your life — there's an app for that

I try to get rid of bad habits and to introduce benefitial behaviors. On a stressfull day however, it's hard to stick to all my resolutions. 2 months ago I have found a solution that works really well for me: Lift.

The basic idea

You start by feeding all youre good resolutions into Lift. Every day you check off all the one's that you achieved. This makes it very transparent, what you did and help's you to not forget your commitments to yourself.

Gamification

Lift has the concepts of streaks. If I did something for 5 days for example this is a 5 day streak.

For me this works great. I would not think about breaking my 66 day Lumosity streak for example.

Friends

On Lift you get support ("props") from other people. There are some pretty remarkable guys on Lift, that get a ton of stuff done every day.

This got even better, when my colleagues joined in. It's amazing to work on habits together and receive positive energy all the time. My colleageus and I also founded a group to work on some habits together.

Conclusion

Lift is the most important app in my life. It helps me to transforming myself.

I have over 30 commitments to myself in Lift. Common wisdom says that this is totally bananas. The amazing thing however is that, on a normal day, I finish most of them.

I am really grateful for this app. I think you should give it a try as well.

If you like Lift — and I am sure you will — become my friend!

    Thanks Grammar Guy 😉 English is hard for me — I am no native speaker. I'll try to avoid this mistake in the future however 😉

  3. So cool to hear that Lift's had such a positive impact. We found that having at least 8 habits correlated to success on Lift; keeps your momentum up!

    @Erin Frey:disqus Sounds really interesting. Did you identify other success factors?

  5. Having an easy daily habit on your list helps, too, like Make Bed or Floss. Gives you a quick, positive boost of momentum.
