A project log for Motivation

Run this each day for 30 days for motivation to finish your projects.

Another git push and files are backed up.

The system is set up as a course that runs for 30 days. Most of the days have no lessons, but I've got about a half dozen topics of interest that people can use to increase their motivation. The lessons are comprised of "arcs" that might happen over several days, and "pages" that comprise a single day's lesson.

Ok, an example.
I've just today completed the Intrinsic/Extrinsic motivation arc, of two days.

The first day consists of 3 pages (really short pages - 2 minute read each) that describe the two types of motivation. For homework, the user is asked to decide which of the 4 extrinsic motivation types their project is weakest on.

For extra credit, the user is asked if there's a simple way to strengthen their weakest motivation type.

The next day asks for their answers, across 2 pages.

Thus, the Intrinsic/Extrinsic arc is 2 days of 5 pages total.

I've got 5 or 6 really good arcs for the course, and I think I can get it up to 10. With 10 ways to increase motivation, the project should be effective for most people.

Here's hoping...
