One of my ongoing demons that I have always had to deal with is consistency in some tasks. Making consistent behaviors and habits is something that I have managed to make through most of my life in someways by the skin of my teeth – well maybe not that dramatic, but I generally do well under pressure and so procrastination works well for my type of personality where the time pressure focuses me. However, not avoiding the pressure comes from habits and predictability, and that is what this planner printable is intended to do.
This particular printable is a monthly habit tracker. The intent is to manage consistency and provide incrementable improvements over months. The main intent is to focus on a baseline habit with a bit of consistency, and then improve/balance over subsequent months.
To use this printable, name your tasks and your target (either per week or per month). Each of up to 31 days is included so you can mark off your task completion on a daily basis. At the end of the month, you can compare your target against your total. Your next month should ideally be modified by your relative success in delivering a particular frequency of the habit.
I find this structure useful because it will keep items that I need to do visible, and will allow me to see what different habits go well together, ideally simplifying the habits in to habit clusters.
Here is a PDF printable for A5 planners (or half Letter) – Monthly Habit Tracker.
