Creating a productive schedule
Prioritizing tasks effectively
People thinking about forming good habits often get stuck. They get preoccupied with a question that feels hopeful. But it’s actually hollow inside. In particular, looking for the answer to: How many days does it take to form a habit?
There is no point.
If you want to know how many days does it take to form a habit, here’s what the experts say:
According to a study done by the European Journal of Social Psychology. For a person to form a new habit, and for this habit to become a kind of automatic behaviour, it takes anywhere from 18 to 254 days. Commonly, the number is 66 days
According to productivity experts, if a person commits to doing something – anything – for 21 days straight.
This thing will supposedly become automatic behaviour that doesn’t require any effort. This is not true.
For example, if you want to lose weight, you should focus on exercising and carefully considering what you eat, not that if three weeks are over!
In a famous book from the 1960s, Dr. Maxwell Malt said: "These, and many other commonly observed phenomena tend to show that it requires a minimum of about 21 days for an old mental image to dissolve and a new one to jell."
21-days seems reasonable. Easy. Tweetable. Doable. Pretty much everyone can persist in doing something for 21 days.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
