Assignment 05: Design a quantified self intervention
March 3, 2018
Try different motivational Apps
I found out that those APPs which are social based interventions have less effect on me. I think it is because I don't care much about how people judge me. And I'm not often influenced by the people around me. Instead, I care more about my true feelings, such as, do I have any progress today? Do I have something that I can be grateful for today? The deeper underlying principles that motivate me are always the things that I really care about. If I take something seriously, motivational Apps can help me a lot on it, otherwise, they just do not work on me.
Design a quantified self intervention
Last week when I talked with Xiran about her working out experience, I found I shared the same pain point with her. Due to some reasons and excuses, we can't stick to our plan and always give up halfway. So I would like to design an intervention to motivate us and people who share the same problem with us to work out regularly.
