Measuring progress is the first step to success in any of our habits. For that reason, a habit tracker template is essential to keeping you motivated and moving in the right direction.
What's a habit tracker, you ask? It's anything you can use to mark off your new, amazing habit every day. This can be old school in the form of a calendar, with a printable (linked above), or using a physical object like marbles.
To make progress you must notice your progress. That part is simple.
But, what habits do you work on?
Deciding on the right habits can be a bit more complicated. Here's a big list of personal and professional habits you can keep track of daily to improve your life overall.
