We first make our habits, then our habits make us.


New year, new you! The start of a new year is the perfect time to set new goals and make positive changes in our lives. Whether it’s to get in shape, learn a new skill, or be more organized, we all have resolutions we want to achieve. But without a plan or a way to track our progress, it can be easy to fall back into old habits.

That’s where these personal improvement spreadsheets come in. Grist empowers you to easily manage and gain insights from your data, enhancing efficiency and success in your work and personal endeavors.
