Avocation: A New Way Of Looking At Habits

Since deciding to move back to Todoist I have been on the lookout for a habit tracker. TickTick had a built-in one, which was great but I realised I like a dedicated habit app. Over the years, I have tried many and know I wanted one that was brought outright so I didn’t have a subscription. After a long search which involved joining and deleting the accounts.

My criteria for the app was that:

  • I wanted it colourful
  • I wanted it easy to use

I found one called Avocation. Apart from finding an app, I also found out that is an actual word that has a meaning.

Avocation. noun: An activity taken up in addition to one’s regular work or profession, usually for enjoyment; a hobby.

Now I know hobbies and habits are two completely different things; however, keeping my habits going is like a hobby to me. I am someone who likes to tick off the habit I have done for that day. Even though some of the habits are part of my routine, I still check them off.

For me it is working for now. I will just keep moving forward and ticking boxes.
