This graph isn’t very clear cut at all in terms of backing up my Quarter Mark Theory. But analyzing it further there are two big gaps in progression.
At around day 53 there is huge downturn - actually a gap in recording that occurred. That was during a week of travel to England and France.
There is another one starting around day 72. This was during another travel to Germany where my computer completely died.
In both cases I wasn’t prepared - I didn’t go lo-tech and I didn’t have a solid implementation intention.
Before both and after both travels I quickly got back to the 70’s in the SRHI.
Does this blow my hypothesis out of the water? I’ll have to keep looking into it.
It is interesting to note that in the first iteration of my writing habit using 750 words, I got to the 70s on day 50 (though at the time I wasn’t taking the SRHI every day - it was more like once a week, if that). And this most recent iteration of the writing habit really did seem to stretch out a lot longer than I would have thought it would. I’m guessing this had to do with the travels and gaps in recording.
This graph might be particularly useful to try to analyze how gaps might stretch out a habit. AND it could be useful to analyze how long it takes for regular habits to become solid superhabits over 80 on the SRHI.
