Sometimes I do my habits in a different order because I forgot about them or I don’t have time or something else…would you still consider them done, or in this way I am not following my routine?

Kate T.
Yes, as you're getting started, I don't think it matter. Here's why: you're learning and experimenting with what works. If you solidify on another order eventually, I'd change it.

Another thing to consider is whether you're the kind of person who needs a lot of structure or some. If you're new to behavior chaining and like structure, I'd do them in order. If either of those aren't true and you will still get things done, be more flexible.

Life happens, and part of building habits is maintaining those habits even when they’re not convenient. More important than the order in which you do your habits is the idea that you’re even doing them.
Lindsey F.
I would still consider them done. While keeping the routine may be helpful for "muscle memory", I think it's important we give ourselves some grace sometimes – then get right back into the swing of things!
Shanwow N.
I absolutely do that sometimes and definitely count it as my routine. Sometimes different days call for different things, but as long as it isn’t something that happens everyday, and you still get everything done, I say it absolutely counts!
Annita N.
I also do this and I still look at it as a following my routine. Sometimes you have the facility to do some of them before or after but the important thing is to take the time to do them

It really doesn’t matter but if you would like to have a scheduled routine then you should write it down in the order you want it to be done so you can remember it and do it in the order you planned.
Christin X.
I think they’re still done since those habits collectively are just supposedly to energize you so the order isn’t too important.
Horst Peter F.
I mean if you click on the check button at 1pm when its supposed to be done in the morning it’s fine with me, sometimes we’re just too busy to do things in the morning.
Olga N.
When I signed up with Fabulous, I didn't realize that the order that I picked the habit, that it would be in that order. I work at night, so I would not be making my bed in the morning and I would be listening to a bedtime story in the morning instead at night.
Kimberly Q.
I think the important thing here is to get the Habit done. I don't think it matters what order you do them in, as long as they are done each day. If that's your method of consistency, and it works for you, that's great!
Jasmine J.
I would consider them done. The fact you remembered at all, that you persisted in completing them, regardless of the order they were done, is more important.
Emma Z.
Any order will do. The objective is to do them. There will come a time when interruptions will necessitate a change in the order. That is life: we adjust and keep moving forward.
Cindy F.
Yes I would consider them done. In order is perfectionism. Perfectionism only breeds shame or a feeling you are not doing enough or good enough. Loving yourself to do them is the point.
Sander A.
Yes. You took the time out of your day to better yourself and achieve your goals, it shouldn’t matter what time or order you did it in!
Carter E.
I do that too, sometimes. It’s important to remember that doing them in any order is better than not doing them at all. No judgement, fam!
Jacob S.
As long as they get done, it doesn't matter. Anxiety like this serves as an excuse to do nothing over the slightest deviation.

Don't worry about if you're doing it "right;" just do it.

Duncan S.
Yes, I always consider them done, even if I do them at a later point during the day. I think it’s preferable to be flexible and kind to oneself.
Kate Z.
Of course! As long as you’re developing good habits, timing doesn’t really matter (unless your habit is very time-oriented)
Marshall J.
For me personally I’d still consider them done as they were part of your things to do for the day. I believe it’s about forming habits to remember to do things at certain times of the day and not the order in which you do them
Tracy C.
Hi fabulous you guys read my mind most times I eat breakfast,then drink water and catch up with my exercise. But I'm going to try my best to follow the routine. Thanks
Sonia X.
I would still consider them done, even though it is not in the perfect order. Because sometime we have to be flexible when life throw a surprise. It may not be done in perfect order, but at least it is done for the day 🙂
Sara F.
I would still consider them done. Every single day is going to look a little different, so we got to give ourselves a little grace if our routines do to.
Emeline S.
Given my schecule, for example training which is at 5pm to 7pm I check it as completed because I know it'll get done by eod
Jessica E.
I believe that at first, consistency is more important than perfection. “Perfection is the enemy of progress.” So I say do it when you remember, but make a note of it and strive to get it at the same time every day.

If you find yourself struggling to, say, workout in the morning, maybe consider that a different time of day might be better for a particular task. Everyone is different, and certain times will be better for your routine than others.

Rom O O.
I consider it's ok not doing it as you planned. The important thing is to do your habits the best you can and as you can, but there is no problem with taking it fresh. It's about enjoying doing the routine, not about the order you do them.
Daniel Y.
I would still consider it following your routine. I think if the intent is to follow the routine and you follow through on that intent with action for each step, it is okay if it gets a little out of order or messy sometimes. That's life. I think the more you reinforce your intent to follow the routine with action it is a good thing, even if it's not perfect.
Actionater B.
I would consider it that you did the habits, but not the routine. A routine is the way that you do it, while habits are the things themselves.
Anita U.
Of course that's ok! Sometimes your day will look different, and the more habits you try to build, the more difficult it is to build repetition. But the point of the process isn't to make your life repetitive, it's to make it better. Who cares if you exercise at a different time or forget to brush your teeth until after lunch. You're still building a daily habit and that's what matters.
Leanne W.
I sometimes take a 30minute pause if I don’t have time to complete the whole set because of an appointment for example, then try to resume in some kind of order when that interruption is out of the way.
Mari P.
They are done!!!!! Do them in the way you feel more comfortable. I don't always feel like tidying up my room first thing in the morning so I have breakfast first and then tidy up^.^
Brett U.
Well, yeah! In my opinion these habits are made for you to feel better about yourself, it doesn't matter if you do it in a different order!
Mariam F.
Honestly I do the same so I consider it done I don't know if that's wrong or what but I always keep the "drinking water " habit first
Lauren Z.
You're still doing them and well-done because you could have just chosen not to. However, overall you're making it harder for yourself in the future as it will be more difficult to keep up your habits if they're not part of your daily routine and actually make them 'habits'.
Benjamin O.
True, I prefer to have my breakfast after doing exercise. So it is like that, but I have my 2 glass of water daily after freshing up in the morning.
Chad S.
In my opinion, I wouldn't consider them done as a routine, as my understanding of a routine/habit is a constantly the same thing with little failure.
