I did not have resolutions for 2014. Instead, I decided to plant and grow few habits that are worth pursuing for years.
To help me get going, I made the following three rules for myself:
- Base goals on Identity. Not on Performance or Appearance.
- Rely on Habits and Processes. Not on Willpower.
- Believe in Evolution. Not in Revolution.
To remind me of these rules, I forked some markup from Codecademy at the end of 2013 and added a timer to it: time.chaitanyamsv.com. This page served me well but as I decided to close my domain, this page will go down as well.
One and a half years later, I no longer need the timer as I systematized my habits in Coach.me and Wunderlist apps. So the habits happen nevertheless. However these rules needed a new home, and this post is it.
