A hybrid mini habit is a daily requirement with two possible ways to complete it—choose which one of them to do each day. This helps you convert weekly goals into daily goals, and it helps make bigger goals smaller. For example, want to go to the gym 3x a week? Your hybrid mini habit can be EITHER one push-up or driving to the gym.
You can use these to dedicate one mini habit “slot” to an objective with multiple tasks. For example, if you need to study music and practice guitar to get better at playing guitar, you can combine them into a hybrid mini habit where you either practice or study every day. Or it may be that you wish to complete them both every day. This decision will come down to how important each objective is to you (and how much time you want to invest in it). I’ll give some examples, but this won’t be comprehensive because you can combine any two Mini Habits (from the same category) to form a hybrid mini habit.
- Drive to the gym OR do 1 Push-up
- Read 2 pages in a book OR read 1 highly educational article online
- Practice guitar for 1 minute OR study 1 page of music theory
