THIS THREAD IS CLOSED. The 2014 Consistency thread is here.


This is inspired by the consistency threads at WriYe. From there:

Consistency is the key: pick a goal and try to reach it as many days as you can. Every day that you manage to reach your goal, add a number to the count. If you miss a day, go back to 0 and start again the next day.

Consistency is also important in language learning, so set a goal and aim to achieve it!

As long as your goal is something you can measure, it doesn't matter how exactly! You can count minutes, pages read, pages written, Assimil or GLOSS lessons, book2 pages... Anything will do!

You can set your goal only for weekdays or only for the weekends. When you really need to, you can also substitute your goal for something comparable, for no more than three days at a time. This needs to be planned in advance.

This is not meant to be an extremely long-term challenge. Goals change and that's fine! This means you're making progress. Inactive goals will be listed as completed unless you consider your goal dropped/failed.

Now on to the technical details. Starting from the next post, practically all posts will be lists of goals. When updating your goals, please use the quote function, but erase everything that's not between the two lines of tildes - ~~~~~~~
You can also write anything you want after these lines - announcing your new goal, describing what exactly you did, congratulating other members on their achievements etc.

It's up to you how to count the days. from 00:00 till 23:59, or from when you wake up to when you go to bed. Just don't switch from one way to the other :D

It's never too late to join!
