Tip for busy days!

I nearly just lost my streak. At one point I didn't care, but when it happened just recently I was reduced to tearful pleading with a green owl. I have now put my goal on Basic(1) because I have had it on Extreme(50) for a while, I know I can do more, I just don't want to lose my streak.

TIP:Place your goal setting on Basic for busy times, if you find the time you can always come back and do your usual goal.

Mine is set at 20 , which I knock out quickly with timed practice. I do this just before bed , but after midnight. Now the streak is out of the way.

The next day I study normally and usually wind up @100.

Glad you saved your streak

I have lost several streaks but I scheduled three alarms at certain times throughout the day on my phone so I at least couldn't say that I "forgot" and I had to really watch myself to not turn off the alarms just to keep it from annoying me! But that's also been a very useful tool to keep my streak.

I always have mine on insane. For busy days just use a streak freeze and everything will be ok.
