Does actually tracking my adherence to these habits (instead of relying on subjective judgments) significantly change the results?
The Habit Graph

I imagine there’s a lot of externalities like:
- people we encounter (i.e. whenever I talk to Alton, I get an afterglow of intentionality that gives a greater sense of motivation and agency to course-correct my habits)
- workload 
- health (especially sickness)
- goals (I imagine this won’t change as much as the other factors, but could is more cyclical in subsequent life stages like 20’s > 30’s > 40’s etc)

Something I’m thinking about is applying Omydyar Network’s Systems Thinking to habits, because it builds upon your Habit Graph by introducing more nuance in the relationships between nodes, like:

  • Vicious Loops: describe situations when things are getting worse and worse (see the gang example above)
  • Virtuous Loops: describe situations when things are getting better and better
  • Stabilizing Loops: describe situations that are kept from getting worse
  • Stagnating Loops: describe situations that are kept form getting better
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
