Gilding the tree

Hi there. I'm doing a daily target of 50 Xp and usually spend an hour a day. I never move forward till I've strengthened each leaf. It's just my way and what I prefer to do. However just lately I can have up to 10 lessons to strengthen. I do find I'm struggling a bit at times but 10 a day. It seems a lot to tackle. I don't mind not moving forward as this is my way of plodding through but a couple of times a week I only have one or two lessons to strengthen. Just wish it could be a bit more spread out

Clicking on the little dumbbell photo and strengthening that way will add to multiple areas at the same time. You don't need to go back to each lesson individually. As long as you do this in addition to starting new leaves, they shouldn't decay that quickly.

This is true. My DuoDay is 50 XP of Strengthen Skills (the blue dumbbell) and then if I have time I tackle a new skill. I've never had a skill turn un-gold.

Do you try the timed practice? If you do it perfectly, you'll get 20 xp points. BTW, my daily target is also 50. I did hear that if you don't use hints, then the system will recognize that you know the material and your tree will remain golden for a while. So now, I don't use the hints, I either know it or don't. At least I know what I should study.

You wish it could be spread out? Pardon, but I don't know what you meant there.

They wish that instead of having to re-gold 10 skills one day and 2 the next three days in a row, they'd have to re-gold 4 skills a day.

I agree, I recently finished Adverbs, it was 12 lessons, so it was pretty difficult to strengthen it completely and finishing it.
