A Gamechanger for Personal Development

Coach.me has motivated me to consistently practice some habits that I had really failed to practice consistently up until I started using Coach.me
Dual N-Back Training with HighIQPro® - For years I'd been hearing about the benefits of Dual N-Back training, as a biohacker, one of the most reliable ways to upgrade the RAM of your conscious mind is to consistently train your memory with Dual N-Back software, but it's so damn boring I just could never get into practicing it consistently... Months would go by in between my Dual N-Back practice sessions! Since I've added HighIQPro as a habit to my Coach.me account I rarely miss a day, in fact at the time of the writing of this review I'm on an 8 hot streak and just hit a new Dual N-Back high score.
Hour 1: Empire Building - This is the common sense, yet uncommonly practiced entrepreneurial habit of working, without distraction, ON your business (as opposed to IN your business) for the first productive hour of the work day. Like most digital hustlers for the longest time I knew I should be doing this but would more often than not get distracted checking email and social media first thing in the morning. With the help of Coach.me I now practice this habit 6 times a week on average.

A few other points of feedback:
The Android App is barely out of beta, it is not very sharp compared with the excellent iPhone app. However, Lift™ has a great mobile website that loads super fast on my Android device. The value I get from the App easily offsets the awkwardness of the Android App.
On the homescreen of the App my Habits appear in kind of haphazard, random order. Supposedly it has a function to order habits, but it's never worked for me... A lot of my habits simply aren't things I can do every day, so perhaps it would be a little more motivating and time saving if I had the option to arrange my habits by the ones I check into most frequently.
People really enjoy bragging about their healthy habits on social media, Coach.me should have an option to publish checkins to Facebook or Twitter.
Coach.me introduced a complete privacy settings for individually habits. So you can make certain habits invisible to people following you. This is great if you are using Coach.me for something really personal like overcoming an alcohol or pornography addiction, I definitely wouldn't want that published on the Internet for everyone and anyone to see! On the other hand, if I wanted to join a support group for my particular issue I would like for the other members of that particular group to be able to see that I was making progress. Hopefully this level of customization is on the way from the Coach.me team...
