Advice for meeting your goal

Hello everyone, I'm Everdella, and yesterday I posted a discussion about being motivated. You should check it out while it's still here:

https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26207567

The post has something to do with "goals", so this discussion is related.

I would recommend making a reasonable goal.

For instance, if you achieve 70 points a day, don't make your goal ridiculously higher, such as 10,000 XP. This might be possible to achieve in a week, but even that's hard. I would also recommend creating a language learning schedule for yourself.

The photo above would probably be a schedule for an advanced, amazing polyglot who can manage it. You probably shouldn't use that schedule unless you are a hyperpolyglot. Schedules should be reasonable and fit into your daily schedule. Don't spend 5 hours on Duolingo if it doesn't fit in your weekly schedule.

Keep your schedule simple and don't purposely make it hard on yourself. Set challenging but possible and comfortable daily goals for yourself!!

Here are some motivational quotes by me:

"Failure can lead to success," - Everdella.

"Success is like a math problem. Motivation + courage = success."

Thanks for reading! :)

I agree with your quote "failure leads to success". I have failed others and myself so many times throughout my life that sometimes I don't see the value of working hard, knowing that it would end in vain. However, I have never experienced a failure that has permanently left me in a bad position. In most cases, they lead me on a route to something more desirable and ultimately better for my future.

As for the rest of your post, I think it is extremely helpful. I love planning, but many things get in the way. However, I just learn how to adapt to things I cannot control. I tend to just do one lesson a day in Romanian and review French vocabulary on clozemaster and on Lingvist for at least an hour a day. It's not much, but I still feel motivated and confident in my skills. It's better than completely ignoring my language studies.

Thank you for this post!
