Back-Journaling or How Cheating Helps Maintain Streaks
I have a 1696 day streak on Day One. It’s clearly a habit because I find it uncomfortable when I don’t do it daily. Still, I fall off the wagon a lot. And then, I cheat. I go back to those empty days and write its journal entry.
Adding photos helps me remember the details. I also take screenshots throughout the day on the Mac, which are great way to remember work details. Sometimes I take notes with the Apple Pencil and add that as a reminder prompt, which I then go back to fill in with text.
