This week’s Dumb Question comes from Rush, and it’s an audience participation question:
Hi Allison. It’s Rush and I’ve got a dumb question…
This question is a broad one, but intentionally so because I would like to hear your thoughts, as well as maybe those of Steve, or Bart, or any of the Nosilla Castaways on how do you set a good activity goal?
The thought came about when I was considering buying the Series 4 Apple Watch. One of my favorite apps on the iPhone is the Activity++ app which you’ve reviewed on your blog as well as on ScreenCasts Online (SCO). That app alone has helped me along with the Workouts++ app, so that I no longer need my fancy Garmin Forerunner watch which I’ve used in the past. Instead I’m able to use Activity++ and monitor the streaks of closing my rings. However, I’m currently at a 40 day streak and I’m asking myself if it were 1,000 days? Would it really be a good goal at that point? Does a goal and achieving it for so long really sort of indicate that maybe your goal is too easy? I know it’s a balance of time and other things and it can probably change over time also.
Thanks for considering my Dumb Question!
I’ve definitely got an opinion on this but Rush (and I) want to hear your thoughts first. Leave a comment here, or email me at email@example.com, or better yet leave a comment in our Slack over at podfeet.com/slack.
