This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
What is one small thing that would improve your life if you just did it every day? It could be anything, big or small. Like flossing, reading, writing, doing yoga, eating churros, doing sit ups (while eating churros), practicing an instrument or learning a new word. But take it from someone who’s never managed to keep a New Year’s resolution: making commitments is easy. Keeping them is what is hard. The Every Day Calendar has a non-volatile memory, so even if it loses power or if your turn it off, it’ll remember what days were lit up I keep my habits, I get to tap that day to light it up. It’s like getting a gold star sticker, but way less sticky.
How to get started with the Every Day Calendar:
1. Read this list. You’re doing great so far.
1.5 Get an Every Day Calendar. (Using the ”.5” somehow makes this feel less pushy)
2. Set a goal for yourself. “Being healthier” is a great intention but let’s make it more tangible than that. I struggle a lot with stress, so my goal was to meditate every day.
3. Lower the bar. Make it something you can do even on the most chaotic of days. You can always do more on days when you have more time. My goal was at least ten minutes of meditation a day.
4. Hang the Every Day Calendar in your home, office, workshop, cavern, laboratory, castle, barn or boat. Just make sure that it’s someplace where you see it every day. The Every Day Calendar is 0% internet connected, so no apps, wifi, bluetooth or computer programs are needed to set it up. Just plug it into the wall and you’re ready to go.
5-∞. Live your best life with the Every Day Calendar.
The Every Day Calendar also works for tracking non-daily habits like watering plants, changing your contacts, calling your granddad or for period tracking.
