  • I did it! Forced reboot.

    Posted by albert_d on May 5, 2022 at 7:07 am

    I had a TAC streak of 365 days. I left for France and told myself I was going to stop the streak and start over. So I skipped the travel day and today is day 1 of the new streak. I think it is good to reboot. A reboot validates my desire for Fun and not some “OCD” thing. (Don’t get me wrong. I love the streak Counter and it’s motivation to build a good habit. But this reboot proves to me that the motivation is pure.) To start the reboot, I worked through No Bull Music Theory for Guitars Volume 1 on the plane ride over to Paris. The Fretboard Wizard taught me most of the material but No Bull has made a good review. During my Daily Challenge Sabbatical through France and Spain, I plan to work through Volumes 2 and 3. The WIN is that my wife is Number One while Guitar is for fun.

    I think rebooting is a good thing, especially if you’re starting a new leg of your guitar journey, just coming out of a slump, or for whatever reason. I’ve had a few fresh starts and the counter reset, and it is a different focus and renewed motivation. Good for you!

    @albert_d congrats on your 365 day streak and your reboot. I love that you are celebrating both!

    Great analysis and observations @albert_d . I had my streak at 4hundred something and started over and there was that moment when I thought “ahww thats a shame” but only took a moment to realize it was a useful tool and it is about my fun fueled progress not the counter.

    My wife is number 1 too and she is fun all the time except for the days I bring home a new guitar…but secretly (between you and I) I think she likes it because while her mouth says no her eyes kinda glint yes, she keeps me around anyway.

    Every now and then I do my practice and forget to log in so my counter resets. My max officially is 113 but actually I’m still on that particular streak so must be at around the 200 mark now. I agree it is nice to see the number going up but now my guitar routine is consistent every day it really doesn’t matter to me. I think your reset is a very healthy thing to do so thanks for flagging this up.
