An early lesson
Yesterday I went through my routine, having forgotten that I’d upped my cardio from just a mini-habit of doing however much I want (as long as it was at least one minute) to a minimum of 2 hours a week. I went through a little cardio and then some strength training, showered, got back to work, and much later realized that I still owed some cardio! I ended up having to do that in the evening. I bet I won’t forget my new rate twice, though.
I also forgot that I’d had a rate change yesterday on a do-less goal (that hasn’t been listed here yet) and proceeded along under the assumption of the old rate and had to ask support to help me with it. Again, I doubt I’ll do that twice!
Learned: When I change my rate on a goal, I need to put a reminder of my new rate somewhere I’ll notice it at the right time to remind myself of the rate change!!
In this case, I’ve added the rate for both cardio and strength to the calendar entry that reminds me to start cardio after my first work block. I’ve also added a note to the alarm that goes off to remind me about something related to my do less so that I’ll remember the new rate. I’m also going to add an entry in my reminder app for the date my rate will change whenever I change the rate on a goal from now on. (This wouldn’t work well with my auto-dialled goals, since the rates would always be in flux, but I’ll burn that bridge when I get there.)
