How do I change my goal?
You might discover that your new goal is too hard to maintain with the rest of your life commitments. Or you might discover that your goal is incredibly easy, and you're getting way more done than you thought you would. Either way, you can edit the goal after it's been created to make it suit you better. All changes will take place starting 7 days from when you make them.
Using the Commit To section of the Commitment tab below the graph on the goal page, enter a new rate and click Update to save changes.
If you click the Change goal date and goal total link beside the blue arrow, you can set goals that will end at a particular date and/or a value as well. The below image is from a goal that's committed to 84000 steps per week until July 23, 2018.
The goal total is grayed out, which means that you're not choosing that goal total; it's just the goal total that will result from walking 84000 steps per week until July 23, 2018. You can input any two of the three fields; the third will be calculated automatically. Make sure that the two fields you want to set have white background when you press Update!
Any of these changes will kick in after the 7-day akrasia horizon, even if you're making the goal harder. You can see in the graph below how the edge of the yellow section kicks up right along the blue dotted line, one week from when the change was made. You can remove safety buffer to bump it up faster!
