Building Habits and Task Management

Several of you talked about goal setting or task management as weaknesses or things you would like to work on in this class. Work habits are also something Austin Kleon stressed in Steal Like and Artist. 

I’m sharing a fun tool that I’m trying out this semester. Habitica is a gamification of task management and goal setting. You get points for completing goals and accomplishing tasks. You can also join up with friends (or strangers) to go on quests. The quests help keep you accountable to others.

If you want to play, my username is chellemcmullin. We can set up goals and go on quests together this semester.




I am a PhD student in Rhetoric and Composition and Purdue University. I currently teach first year composition. My research interests include threshold concepts in composition, invention strategies, service-learning, community engagement, and professional and technical writing.
