Video: What I’ve learned in a year of tracking habits

Can an app help you develop habits? For the last year I’ve been using the Lift iPhone app to track (and motivate) my life habits. Here is a talk I gave at the Quantified Self Meetup a couple weeks ago when I went back and looked at the results of my year. I tell how I started, explain the habits I tracked, show the data and how life events (like travel and sickness) affected my habits. The last half is a great Q&A session with the audience.

Here is the data, spreadsheet, and charts from my talk.

I am ‘wanderingstan’ on Lift if anyone wants to follow me there–anything for more accountability. :)
