The famous “Don’t Break the Chain” productivity system has many followers. If you want to start a new habit in 2017, Just Use A Pen has a custom calendar made for the habit-building technique.
It’s a large calendar for the whole year (albeit with a distracting “One Cal” drawn between the lines), and you’ll have to sign up for the newsletter before getting access. Each day has boxes where you can draw a satisfying X to mark your new habit as done. Print it out, hang it on your wall and start crossing off days to build a chain you feel compelled not to break.
Apart from building habits, the method has proven to help beat procrastination. If you want something shorter than a full year’s worth of goals, there’s also a four-week Don’t Break The Chain calendar.
