This is how it works.

Chains.cc is an online motivational tool based on the "don't break the chain" method that helps you stick to your good habits and break bad ones. Each day you complete a task you want to keep up, you mark it in your chains. The chain will grow longer with each day and soon your main motivation is to keep the chain from breaking. Your chains are shown visually with several great looking skins to choose from.

Intro manual 01

Chains.cc is delightfully simple and easy to use and getting started is really quick.

After you sign up you are greeted with your first empty chain. Like the text suggests, you should double click the title to rename it. Let’s make this a “running” chain.

Intro manual 02

There we go. Now you are ready to start accumulating your chains by clicking on the “holes” below the title, but you might want to look at the settings by pressing the gear icon in the bottom left.

Intro manual 03

You can se which days to skip, for example, we are only going to go running on mondays, wednesdays and fridays, so we’ll set the other days as skipped. We can also select a color for the title and a skin for the chain itself.

Intro manual 04

Now we’re done! The days we set as skipped are empty and when you mark the days parallel to it, they get filled automatically so your chain is kept intact.

Now the only thing you have to do is keep the chain from breaking!

Am I on my own?

Nope! You can add your chains to some of the many groups people have created, this running chain might feel at home at the Exercise group, for example. You can see how other people with similar goals are doing and try to keep up. Check out the groups page for some inspiration.
