In this episode, I design and build my own device that reminds to complete 6 tasks each day. Each flick on the switch is accompanied by a tiny boost in dopamine. Inspired by @Simone Giertz "The Everyday Calendar" but with 6 reminders instead of one.
The full code, CAD and illustrator files as well as the schematic for the electronics can be found here: drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JT_uNP8yWYnl9HUFpKN8J3Ya1B2z1zBw

  • People who can't build their own box can use post-it notes ... you move them from one position to another, on a wall, as you complete the tasks. Each day move the set of post-its to a different wall, or a window ... add in something between each task ... could be 30 seconds of a randomly selected exercise ... something to keep it interesting ... no one wants to each the same thing every meal but if you can have a new spice every time when it's far easier to go long term.

    Randy ZeitmanRandy ZeitmanPirms 9 dienām
  • Seems like you have seven chores ... the first one being to creative the cognitive dissonance you'll need to get satisfaction from completing the other six. You ask why you need to write them down ...isn't that weird... well no more weird than doing the same six every day ... and the reason for that is to avoid shame ... the tasks are not hard but if you were not able to complete one you will feel shame! Want more dopamine? Rotate in a new task each week and perhaps rotate out one every two weeks. What happens if you have twelve instead of six? What are the number of tasks that give you the maximum dopamine? Also, do they have to be in a certain order. Take the six and mix their order every two weeks ... how does the new ordering feel?
