Help Me by Funding My Habit App on Kickstarter!

Habit Zen

By Leo Babauta

I’m creating a habit app, and I need your help.

It’s just a web app for now, and it’s already in its beta testing phase. It’s called Habit Zen, and (eventually) it will be the first app to really help people overcome resistance and stick to habits.

But although I’ve put about $20,000 of my own money into this project (with two developers and a designer), I have run out of money.

So I’m asking you to help me build this … by funding my Habit Zen project on Kickstarter.

I’m excited about this Kickstarter campaign, because 1) you’ll be able to become a part of this project that means a lot to me, and 2) I’m offering some exclusive rewards if you help fund this project (I’ll get to those in a minute).

So what is this habit app, and why should you care?

Right now, it’s a web app, and a simple habit tracker. Nothing to get excited about … except that it will become better and better as people use it. That’s because I’m going to run big habit experiments to figure out what helps people stick to habits. What habits are better to start with? How long should you do them? Is it better to have an accountability partner, or a group? Rewards or consequences? I’m going to use this app to test these questions and many more.

So we’re going to learn, together! It’s going to be like a crowd-sourced habit learning project, and I’ll share the info publicly on this blog. And use it to make the app better at helping you get good at creating habits.

It’ll also (eventually) help people create personal habit formulas that will adjust over time to help them create a habit plan and stick to it.

It’s going to be a web app for now, but I hope to create a phone app next year. In the meantime, if you help fund the project, you can become a beta tester and help me learn and make this project really great. I hope you join me!

Kickstarter Rewards

I’ve created some rewards that I think are really great … and I can’t wait for you to check them out:

To encourage you to help me build this … I’m creating some rewards that will be exclusive to this Kickstarter campaign (depending on what level you fund):

Of course, which of these you get depends on which funding level you choose. :)
