Motivation: Using Passwords to Achieve Goals

Daily focus / self actualization towards goals is something that has long been studied and debated.  Though many find it hard to keep the habit up and soon life gets in the way.   How to keep my focus on my goals?

I have to type my password in multiple times a day.  For years, I have been using my passwords to remind me to focus on goals.  Personal, family, financial, fitness, travel, etc. There is no limitation on what you can have as a goal.

Now what about security? Most organizations require you to change you password every 90 days. That means you can have your goal a quarter at a time. Perfect.

Will it be easy to guess? I mean aren’t you giving away your password strategy on the internet? Not really. I’ll let this xkcd comic explain it: https://xkcd.com/936/

Summary: In short changing your password frequently and using it to set goals or remember those you have lost might actually help you exceed your goals.

Happy 2017!
