for addictive habit building via Farmville-esque intermittent variable reward. I thought I'd put up a spreadsheet on Dropbox for everyone to download.
Here's how it works:
You get RANDBETWEEN(1,10) for each habit you complete for each day. You log these on a spreadsheet that you update daily. Every at certain point levels that occur every ~3 days you get a self-determined reward. At point levels that occur every ~10 days you level up. I use a judo belt system. I'm now orange/green. I symbolize these by wearing a silicone wristband (e.g. the livestong bracelet type) of appropriate color for the relevant belt I'm at.
I began with 3 easy habits
1. Keep a ubiquitous capture device with you
2. Keep a to do list
3. Check in with the spreadsheet every day.
For every belt you level up, you get to add another habit.
