Wake helps us achieve our goals by helping us set patterns that will get us there, holding us responsible for those patterns, and reflecting after each week to be better the following week. We can track our progress and see our visible momentum by chaining consecutive days together into streaks. Wake helps us create an environment around our goal where we have visible inspirations of why we want what we want so badly.
*** Why? ***
We made Wake because we believe that life is just way too short to waste it stuck in unwanted routines and ruts. These things make up hours of our days, and in the end, weeks, months, or years of our lives.
*** How? ***
The last time our brains evolved was somewhere between 40,000 and 200,000 years ago. Because of this, our brains are really bad at thinking about our future selves. Our old brain basically sees that person as a complete stranger. This is why most of our efforts to change fail in time. When we're choosing between something that is or feels great for us right now and something that is or feels great for a stranger in the future the choice is pretty one sided. The bright side is our old brain is really really good at avoiding consequences and dangerous situations, it had to be for us to survive.
Wake was made to leverage this as a tool to help us create lasting change for the better in our lives. As humans we are all wired to be much more motivated by immediate consequences than we are by future possibilities.
In Wake we will identify our goal we want to achieve and we will also make several patterns we need to do in order to help us achieve that goal. So for example, if our goal was to "Get in shape" our patterns might be to exercise 3 times a week, eat cleanly every day, and to drink a certain amount of water.
With Wake we will attach a motivational fee to each of these patterns. It can be anywhere from a penny up to whatever is effective for you. Each day that we don't act on our patterns that motivational fee is our consequence. At the end of the week we will pay the fees for the patterns where we fell short. So if we chose a fee of a dime for all of our patterns and we skipped one of our three workouts (2/3) and we ate like crap the whole weekend (5/7) then our fees for the week would be $0.30.
The fitness industry has been using this strategy for years to get people to actually stick to their fitness plans. So if a person has scheduled so many workouts or classes for a given week and they cancel or don't show up to them they have financial penalties. These small immediate consequences help people be more consistent and in the end get what they want.
At the end of the week after we settle our fees we will also reflect back on our week and list 3 positives and 3 negatives. This is the iterative improvement piece of Wake and the next big thing that is going to help us grow. For our positives we want to identify things we did great or that worked well for us that cycle. For the negatives we want to list areas where we can improve and perhaps ideas on what to try next cycle.
