Every so often I get fed up with whatever note taking, habit tracking, to do list tool that I am using. I used to think it was about the feature set.

It is like how ringtones get tiresome after a while. No matter how beautiful the piece you picked, hearing it hundreds of times makes it not that different from a stereotypical alarm sound. In fact, it is worse when you pick a song that you like; it becomes a trigger for mild dread.

Even little changes can help. Clear for example, have color themes. While the novelty didn’t last, switching colors did help extend the expiration date.

Maybe I should build my own to-do list app. One that changes its appearance on its own. Maybe randomly, maybe according to seasons. Maybe a mixture of both. Could be worth a try.
