Psychologists tell us that it takes 21 days to forge a new habit — yet most new year’s resolutions are broken in first week. Why? Lack of persistance. This simple little tool may just be the answer for you…

“Whether you’re staring down the end of the year and want to get a head start on your New Year’s Resolutions, or you just want to make a positive change in your life, like getting out for a walk periodically or remembering to get a little exercise when you wake up, Habitforge can help. Habits are generally activities that you repeat without really thinking about having to do them, and it takes repetition to turn an activity from something occasional to a real habit that is part of your daily routine.

Simply tell Habitforge what it is you want to do and how frequently you want to do it, and the service will help you make your vague goal into something you actually do with some regularity. The goal is that eventually, Habitforge will be able to step aside, and you won’t even think about it—you’ll just do it.

Habitforge reminds me of Disciplanner, another tool that’s designed to help you take vague goals, like exercising every day and packing your own lunch, and turning them into things that you actually do. Accounts at Habitforge are free, and getting your reminders set up is incredibly simple: Unlike with Disciplanner, Habitforge has no graphing or analysis tools available to make sure you did what you set out to do, just a reminder and some light tracking of your progress.
