Want to learn? Then it’s the right time to use Pique!
It’s difficult to know when you’re going to be bitten by the learning bug though. That’s why it’s probably best to plan regular times to use Pique when you know your brain is generally feeling open and curious. So, probably not after the regularly frustrating phone call you have every Tuesday at 2pm.
In general, when we say “set a time to use Pique” we mean figure out what context you want to be in when you use Pique and make a plan to use it at those times.
You might reach for meditation apps when you feel stressed or mobile games when your brain absolutely can not take in any more information at all. The best time to reach for Pique is when you feel open to learning something new. By setting an intention for when you’ll use Pique, you can turn smarter reading, learning, and reflection into a habit!
Why is it good to plug Pique into your plan?
When we repeat certain behaviors over and over in regular contexts, like at the same time or in the same place, they start to become automatic.
You might have done that with some behaviors you’d like to stop, like picking up your phone to check social media as soon as you wake up. This phenomenon isn’t limited to tendencies that the algorithm wants you to make into a habit though.
You can make helpful behaviors automatic too. We might be biased, but we’re pretty sure that making a habit of using Pique to take your reading one step further is a positive thing. Because of that, we recommend slotting us into your daily or weekly routines for regular learning!
Times successful people
read do books in Pique:
- On your commute
- With your morning cup of joe
- Before bed
- After putting the kids to bed, in the 5 minutes of euphoria you have before your brain shuts down
- Every Saturday
- In between Zoom calls
- On your lunch break
- After finishing Ozark
- While waiting for the frying pan to heat up
- When you would otherwise refresh your email waiting for a response
- When you find yourself falling prey to the siren song of social media
- Every time you see a lightbulb flicker
- At 2:55pm – we’re not sure why, it’s just a great time
That being said, it’s good to be flexible too.
Science says that the best way to make a habit stick is to be flexible while you’re setting it. We all stumble at the beginning stages of setting habits and if you’re too rigid, you’ll force yourself all the way back to the starting block.
Planned to turn to Pique before work, but then woke up groggy with no extra time? That’s okay! Take a spin through the app on your lunch break. It’s better to continue at an off-time than not at all. If and when you miss the timeslot you originally planned, you can always turn to Pique at another time. Pique is in your phone whenever you can to return to it!
Regardless of what time you turn to Pique, there are so many great books in the app for you to choose from. If you’ve got 5 minutes in between calls or in a waiting room, that’s enough time to pick up and Pique!
