An application where members of your inner circle can point out some of your harmful habits and provide suggestions on how you can improve.
It will help us identify our bad, harmful habits
It will provide suggestions, based on the experiences of our friends and family members, on how we can break these habits
The app will work in a way similar to how anonymous surveys work. However, it will be a private application where only certain people can view your profile. Here is how it will work:
You download the application.
You set up a profile
You send invitation links to your closest friends and family; people you are like an open book with and who you interact with frequently
They download the application, register, and create profiles
On your profile, they can make submissions on certain bad habits they wish you can change; however, it will be anonymously
If you are fine with other people in your circle seeing it, you will make it public
The remainder of the people you have added can then comment on whether they have observed the same thing about you
They can also make suggestions on how you can improve
Each comment will be shown to you privately unless you decide to make it public
Each comment will be made anonymously
Periodically, you can update the thread with the efforts you are making to rid yourself of the habit and ask your friends how they think you are doing.
We all have blind spots when it comes to our behaviors. While practicing self-awareness and mindfulness can help us identify a large number of these harmful behaviors, most people don't have the time to practice it. And for some people, laziness is the reason why they can't practice mindfulness and self-awareness.
With this application, we can recruit our most trusted friends and family members to help us identify and break this habit.
Honesty is a good thing. However, the people we are closest to will not always be honest with us for fear of hurting or antagonizing us. Ensuring that submissions are anonymous will ascertain they can speak their minds without fear of retaliation.
Unfortunately, you cannot always tell those who have malicious designs on you. Hence, why you have to approve it before it goes public.
