How To Create Your Own 'Seinfeldian Chain'

How To Create Your Own 'Seinfeldian Chain'

Jerry Seinfeld once told an aspiring comic that he uses a unique calendar system to force himself to write and achieve goals. It's a simple system - you just mark days off with a big red "X."

Much like crossing off days or goals in your good old moleskine, you'll feel accomplished and successful if you follow suit. "After a few days you'll have a chain," Seinfeld reportedly told the comic. "Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain."

How does it work? The widespread use of web calendars means no one marks dates off on big wall calendars anymore, but you can do it online with the Seinfeldian Chain. It will allow you to keep track of your progress toward any goal. You can give your chain a special name (say maybe a fitness goal or goal to make meals at home) and then save it by clicking on the provided link. Bookmark the page and you'll be ready to mark away toward your goal.

It's moleskin*e* - note the e on the end? Don't you realize how freaky it would be to crossing you days off on a moleskin? :)

If any of you are anything like me, this would quickly turn into a rousing one-sided game of Tic-Tac-Toe. ...(groan)...
