So aim for an 84 day chain, then reassess.

 

It’s a good idea, but honestly I think the goals which work for me are the real world hard-and-fast ones, like exams and travel plans. Day-to-day motivation has never been a problem.

 

It’s probably too early to say, but is the 12 week year working for you?

 

Right now my only goal is to do the parts I enjoy and make friends I want to stay in touch with. In past visits I’ve been panicked about speaking all Chinese all the time, but this year I’m just going with the flow. If I make good friends with people who speak mostly English, eh, it’s fine, I’ll end up coming across their friends who most likely won’t. Paradoxically my best times there have been playing games like Cards Against Humanity with great people.

Slightly off topic but is this the 伊戈尔斯.  Is this the correct translation for the Eagles?

So far I'm liking it. I'm not going to pretend I've done everything I've set out to, but I've probably done more than I would have otherwise.

Absolutely, and where I have something like that coming up I'll work around it rather than some arbitrary date. But if an exam date is 9 months in the future, I need some kind of milestone, artificial or not, between that and now.
