targets

The following is a list of short-term monthly goals, measurements I hope to achieve by next measure and I try to update these after each measurement!! ;)
An asterisk (*) means I have had a trim since the previous measurement. I compensate for the trim by adjusting my target (where I allow 13mm a month for my target from previous actual measurement, I deduct the amount I trimmed to make the goal more realistic.
I 'strike through' each date after I have updated it with the new measurement, and the figure in brackets at the end of each entry is the actual measurement reached. The target is the first figure (not in brackets).
From October 2004 I decided to measure quarterly. I measured in December 2004 and then three-monthly from then on. I think it is better for me to not have to think about my hair length so intently once a month. I'll continue to track my targets. I will try to stick to the Full Moons as much as possible to keep in line with proper 'full months' rather than on the Equinoxes and Solstices, although that appeals too :) In fact as there are 13 moons in a year, I have jiggled my measurement dates about so that I end on a December moon.

I haven't kept this targets page up to date because I have been continually trimming back to Classic the past couple of years!

I've overhauled this section as the fraction symbols were all over the place - so now I ignore the 'eighth' of an inch and round it up or down to the nearest 'quarter' inch, and .25" = a quarter ("), .5" = a half inch ("), or .75" = three quarters of an inch ().

I have listed the following dates for long term goals up to fingertip length (that's 'Greek' length on me), as that is my dream length at the moment. My initial goals of Waist Length and then tailbone length were been achieved in timely fashion, now I have reached 'Classic' or top of thigh!
Long term my Goal will be 'fingertip length' which is mid thigh on me (ideal length calculated according to the Golden Section is exactly fingertip on my body) and if I find that too long (if I ever reach it) I can trim it back to a more manageable length *grin*
I have allowed for half an inch or about 13mm growth per month, and allowed for trims every three months, but much of this time I was not trimming regularly at all. I have been trimming lately to maintain Classic so for the moment I will leave these targets as they are until I have any major breakthroughs or changes of plan:
