Protect my forced plan - Lass86 - 08-28-2023

Hello everyone,

I need some advice. I just started a new forced plan that doesn't allow me on social media till six PM. Now, from what I know, once you get to the time the plan ends for the day, you can change up the plan if you want to. 
Is there a way to protect my plan from my monkey brain and keep that locked? Even after six PM?

Greetings Lass86

Hi Lass86!

What you can do is set up the 'Stop challenge when inactive' on the plan protection page. I would recommend choosing 'Random Characters' with a length long enough that your monkey brain won't be tempted to change the settings unless you have a good reason. Personally, I use about 40-60 characters.

Alternatively you can set the 'Stop challenge when inactive' to forced but I would not recommend this to most people. If you do choose this option, please ensure you sure you set a plan end date in case you need to make any changes to the plan later.

Hello Jon,

Thank you for the recommendation! 
I have a new goal set for this year and I was worried that I might talk myself out of it again...  Smile

I'll have to change it when it let's me again. 

Thank you!
