Wouldn’t You Rather Be Successful?
Has your habit of putting things off negatively impacted your life? You’ve been passed over for a promotion because you failed to deliver on a big project. You have a story in your head begging to be told, but you can’t seem to make yourself write it down. Instead of exercising, you find yourself binge watching a TV show you’re not even interested in.
Everyone procrastinates occasionally. But habitual procrastination is a cycle that can shatter your confidence, cause stress, create anxiety, and even lead to feelings of worthlessness or depression. It can hit at any age, whether you’re seven years old or seventy. What if there is a way a way to end the cycle of procrastination and achieve your goals once and for all?
Now there is. Introducing 6 Brix.
What is 6 Brix?
Studies have shown that committing just a few minutes to a task is often enough to push you through the procrastination barrier. Often, the momentum generated by that short amount of time creates the push you need to keep going.
6 Brix is a new, effective way to break the cycle of procrastination, build new habits, and restore your faith in yourself. It allows you to schedule small increments of time, or “brix,” into your day. Whether you are preparing a dissertation, dreaming of writing a best-selling novel, learning to play an instrument, or establishing a daily exercise habit, 6 Brix gently reminds you to get started.

How it Works.
Decide what you want to achieve. Figure out what your timeframe looks like. For each goal, create a new project in the 6 Brix app. You can choose a preloaded project (such as Learn Guitar) to get started quickly. Or, you can create your own project from scratch. Just enter a few details, pick a project color, and choose a project icon to help you stay organized.
Once you have a project created, choose how frequently you want to work on it (days of the week) and for how long (how many brix). That’s it! You’ve just taken the first step towards creating new habits and stopping procrastination in its tracks!
See how it works:
What if you miss a brick? No sweat! Brix aren’t tied to a certain time. Simply come back to it later that day, or just resume your work when your brix pops up next. There’s no need to tie your life to a rigid schedule and take the fun out of getting stuff done. The 6 Brix idea is to create projects for only those things that are most important to you – or on which you need help getting and staying started. Being flexible helps us stick to new habits. Pile up those brix and see where it takes you.

Curious about some of the science that supports the 6 Brix approach to solving procrastination? Maria Konnikova of the New Yorker wrote a great article summing it up. Check out Maria’s article here: https://www.newyorker.com/science/maria-konnikova/a-procrastination-gene.
Another great article was published today by Ryan Prior on CNN.com that explores the science behind creating new, good-for-you habits. In the article, Ryan interviews Katy Milkman, a professor at the Wharton School of Business, who is spending her career studying habit development. If you read all the way to the end, you will see that 6 Brix’s methodology is supported by Professor Milkman’s scientific findings, including the way we built in flexibility for when you do your brix on any given day. If you planned to do a brix at 11:00, and your good friend called and wanted to go to lunch at 11:30, you can simply do your brix later when you have time. Its better to keep your promise to yourself and complete a brix “late” than it is to skip it all together! You can read the article here: How to build lasting habits for a better life – CNN.
