Have you ever heard of the “Don’t Break The Chain” (DBTC) motivation technique
used by the famous American stand-up comedian and director Jerry Seinfeld? The
idea behind this motivation technique is so simple and easy to achieve: Define a
goal and try to constantly do actions towards your goal. So, no matter you are
going to learn a new language, learn how to play Guitar, break a bad habit, write a
new book, or any other activities, the “Don’t Break The Chain” enables you to be
on the right track and forces you to keep doing whatever it takes to reach your
Interested in the idea and want to know how DBTC works? Well, download the
application for free on your iOS device, add your goals and start tracking your
activities on a daily basis.
What to expect from the Don’t Break The Chain?
DBTC, the motivation app to track your commitment to your goals and
resolutions, comes with a clean and neat design and the interface is so user-
friendly that you’ll get the whole idea after writing down your first goal and
marking the first X on the calendar.
What is X?
Well, you have access to a large year-at-a-glance calendar and at the
first day of your motivation program, you get to mark that day with a red X, if you
manage to do the committed task toward your goal. In other words, did you do
the task you were supposed to do? If so, mark that day with an X, otherwise, you
have broken the chain and you prove your self your not motivated enough.
And the chain starts. Congratulations on starting your chain. You have to keep
doing the tasks every day and mark the calendar with an X to make sure you
never break the chain and you are getting closer to your goal day by day. After a
while, you’ll develop a good habit of doing worthy actions and you’ll see how
motivated you are.
Don’t forget that your chain of red Xs cannot be stopped unless you reach the
pre-defined goal, and you cannot mark a day with an X unless you’ve done what
you were supposed to do.

Simple and Effective
I use this application to keep a record of how often I practice the Wim Hof Method to manage my anxiety and panic disorder. Doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles of the other apps which I prefer-get it, got it done. Very effective tool in tracking any discipline and it really keeps me motivated to do the task everyday! After a week you really don't want to break the chain. I like it because the desire to continue is self sustained. I am a master of procrastination and laziness and this app has changed my life for the better! Don't think just do. 😄
Having a place to record my goal compliance really helps me to improve it. This app does just what it's intended to and does it well. Sometimes I find myself wanting to record more fine grained detail. But if it had that, it would be a different app. And I've sometimes found a more detailed, time consuming interface to be a deterrent to recording anything at all. So I appreciate that this app is straightforward and easy to use.
Motivates me to keep the chain going
I actually love tapping the X to show I’ve done it. The gaps bother me and this simple thing has made the difference! I’m a ONE Thing fan and I heard that Geoff used it, so I gave it a try for our 66 day challenge. My 13 yo son is now using it because his teacher gave them a 66 day challenge to read x amount every day to build the habit. There is no limit to the things you might improve by tracking them and being accountable for your wins and losses and strive to have more wins. I like complicated things, but simple is what’s working for me. Love this app!
