1. Decide upon a goal (a healthy day - healthy food today for example).
2. Every day you keep moving forward with that goal mark the day with green.
3. Now you have a chain of a few days! don't break it! keep the chain going!
This technique worked out fine for Jerry Seinfeld and it will for you too. The philosophy is simple: Small steps every day brings you closer to your goals. MyChain motivates you to stay on track and to not give in to casual weaknesses. But if you do have a reason, MyChain's "good excuse" feature comes to your rescue.
MyChain features multiple chains, home screen widgets, a calendar view and variable frequencies as well as a unique rewarding system to motivate you even more.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Goal Tracker & Habit Streak will help you by keeping track of your progress.
It is inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret:
”…get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step is to get a big magic marker.
...for each day that you do your task, put a big mark over that day. After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.
...Don’t break the chain.”
Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly habits/goals.
Weekly progress calendar view. Log all habits/goals on one screen.

"Sow a thought and you reap an action;
sow an act and you reap a habit;
sow a habit and you reap a character;
sow a character and you reap a destiny."

✓ Habit Streak helps you achieve your goals (or New Year's Resolutions) in exercise, diet or other areas of your life. Each day you report on whether you succeeded yesterday, building up streaks of habits and ingraining the activities into your life.
"After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain" (Jerry Seinfeld)
Habit Streak has two key advances on Jerry Seinfeld's original technique. Firstly it allows you to build several chains up at once. Secondly it (optionally) prompts you every day to report on your success (whereas one could easily forget to update or look at a physical calendar).
✓ New in Pro version.
The Pro version has rebuilt several elements of the application from the ground up to enable new features.
It includes import (from either Habit Streak or Habit Streak Pro).
It features improved layouts (and a reduced install size).
The correction mode is now much more powerful, giving you a fine level of control over habits (particularly useful if you are moving from another habit tracking system and want to import your progress so far).
The habit view features a new past streak graph (once you enough past streaks for this to be useful, if you have a small number of recorded streaks then the graph does not appear).
There are two widgets. One shows you if you are up to date (and if so your streak count and total), if not it prompts you to update (telling you when you last updated for). The other shows your best and worst streaks. Tap on either to open the App.
Add to calendar: now (on supported devices) you can add reminders to your calendar both for individual habits and reminders to update Habit Streak. To add individual reminders hold down on a habit.
NB Nothing is added to your calendar unless you specifically request it. You must have a default calendar set up on your device for this to work (you need an Android 4.0 or newer device).
✓ Cloud Backup
Automatic backup to Dropbox: you can link the App to Dropbox and it will automatically backup your data in a standard format (it is not on my server or restricted to this App).
✓ New 2014 Android 4.0+ Redesign
Habit Streak Pro was recently redesigned for Android 4.0+ (the vast majority of Android devices). On Android 4.0+ you can now access common actions with a swipe to the left and see a quick overview screen or guide with a swipe to the right. There are also many visual and functional updates.
On older devices you can still use Habit Streak Pro; however, a small number of features will not be available (and it may not look quite as pretty).
✓ Reviews from the free version:
"Fantastic. Easy to use, and I'm finding it effective for taking on multiple new habits."
"This simple app has altered the course of my life. Thank you!"
"Love this application. It has helped me create many new habits. The sister application Task Life is great as well."
✓ If you want To Do list-like functionality see my other app "ToDo Log" which allows for real time recording, repeated and one-off events along with graphs of your past performance. For less than daily tasks check out "Task:Life", for a different approach, based around the idea of what proportion of days you do something.

Using Unbroken Chain is as simple as adding your goals and placing a big red check on each day that you were able to accomplish it.
The Seinfeld quote above served as inspiration for the Unbroken Chain app that I've just submitted to the app store. Jerry is absolutely right that, once you start seeing the links in those chains grow, you want to make sure they continue to grow. This app simply helps you visualize your progress on your goals.
Do you have a New Year's Resolution to start exercising? Great! Create a new goal.
Only want to track three times a week? When creating your goal, just leave Monday, Wednesday and Friday checked and uncheck the rest of the days.
You can also use it to track things that don't want to do:
Use Unbroken Chain to track your progress when trying to quit smoking, drinking soft drinks, or anything else you'd like to quit doing.
Privacy information: All your goals are stored on your iOS device. They are never uploaded to the web.
Be it exercise, diet, blogging, or kicking a undesired habit, use Daily Badge to track the progress everyday. Tracking is simple. Tap on the star of the day under the goal to mark it as completed for the day. Keep doing it everyday. Keep the chain going.
As Seinfeld has said about his productivity calendar - don't break the chain!
