HeroMode helps me stay organized and motivated on my side project called Minimal Fast Tracker!
Summary

Last year, I launched an app called "Minimal Fast Tracker". And a month ago, I was happy to get a feature request from a user about being able to export their own fasting data. Minimal Fast Tracker being a side project, it was easy for a feature request to slip through the cracks and end up never being delivered. So I used HeroMode to track and motivate myself. And thanks to HeroMode, the data export feature is now available in the newly released Minimal Fast Tracker v1.4!

Summary

HeroMode started as a nebulous idea that kept growing over the years. This idea was shaped by several books on the topics of behavioral science, motivation, and habits. These insightful works make the science on human behavior accessible to everyone, and give us the tools to design our own behaviors and drive success. In this season of gratitude, we want to share with you the books that form the philosophical backbone of HeroMode!

Think of your goals as a lighthouse instead of a finish line.
Summary

We all have the natural drive to enrich our human experiences, to grow, and to achieve mastery. And often, we set goals to remind us of our aspirations. But goal setting can be tricky. Done well, it can guide us to success. Otherwise, as many of us have experienced, it can lead to frustration and disappointment.

Before we begin the goal setting season that comes with the new year, let's first build the right mindset for goals. As it turns out, how we think about goals can make a big difference in their effectiveness, and, more importantly, in our ability to enjoy the journey.

heromode can help you stay away from bad habits, such as browsing reddit excessively
Summary

In this post, I finally complete my Adventure to quit Reddit! Thanks to HeroMode, I've been off Reddit for 415 days. At this point, I have forgotten what doom scrolling on Reddit used to feel like, and the grip it used to have on me. I've formed new routines, and content with this new norm without Reddit. If you have a bad habit that you are struggling to kick, or a new habit you wish to adopt, maybe HeroMode can help you too!
