Travel Tech: Build Your Habit List

Publication2Calendars are great for meetings and appointments. But what about those little things that don’t necessarily fit in an exact time slot? Instead of a schedule, create a habit- the Habit List app can help. Load in small tasks, recurring to-do’s, and routine reminders, then check them off as you go. Use it for flexible scheduling when specific days aren’t important- as in, “Three workouts before Friday,” or “Update website 4 times this week.” Create reminders for select tasks, prioritize your tasks to focus on what’s due, and view your history to see how your habits are shaping up. Habit List will also track your streaks- another motivational tool to help you hit your goals. A great addition to a typical calendar app, HabitList help you get and stay organized.
