After the low in my daily productivity, it's hard to get back on track with a new streak. Just when I thought this system is finally perfect I'm back with the same problem I had at the beginning of this iteration.  I'm doing too much too fast.

Starting slowly would make it easier to get a longer streak. It would give some time to stay a bit lower and have some easier days in the beginning. Getting those small increases would also mean there would be more of those "better than yesterday" -days.

I started this streak yesterday with only five items completed yesterday. Today, all of a sudden I'm already at ten. Hardly any room to improve anymore if I intend to keep this streak as long as the previous one. No time to rest. Need to keep pushing forward.

The biggest problem actually is, that I consciously left things undone. Just because I didn't want to get today's score any higher any more. I know I could easily have done at least three or four more things, maybe even more. I could have gotten straight back up there where I left the previous streak. 

But I didn't want to do that. I wanted to leave some room for the coming days to improve. So I didn't do everything I could have done. And in a way, I do feel bad about it. Maybe it gets better once again. When I get this streak going on. And at least it's a good thing that I don't lack the motivation to do all those things. I just need to keep going.
