The number you want each month to stay even is 1/12 which is 8.33%. I am at 7.11% right now. Just sayin... Btw I am looking to hang on to my 30%. Moving up to 35% would take some stroke of luck, genius and motivation at this point.

I think this is the right way to look at it (1/12 of the year). I just hit 8.31% a few minutes ago. Pretty happy about January. But I'm really hoping not to be sitting .02 percentage points short of my goal on the next to the last day of the whole year!! Too much tension in that!

well, I am in. I would love to beat last year RC because I dropped one pay level. So far it doesn't look good...

I'm on 6.9%. So far I'm very pleased with that, last year I had only about 4.3% of my total 2011 RC number in January .

One idea. The race is to beat last year RCs, that is clear, but I don´t know if it would be also useful for everyone to set another target with the RC you want to achieve this year.


For example, lets say someone had 25kRCs last year. Well above 30% royalty % but below 35%. Beating last years RCs is nice but may be setting also the target for the next level, 40k, can help the contributor work harder or learn what momentum of RCs is needed to reach higher levels. It is true that with the huge difference between 35% and 40% some of us can get discouraged but in lower levels it might be useful.


We would just need two columns each  month instead of one and then post the % according to our RCs of last year and the % according to the level we want to achieve.


Just thinking out loud

9,83, pretty good for me, but I had an EL and that certainly does not happen  every month.

I'm planning on RCs for 30% to be at 12,500, so I'm basing my percentage on 1100 credits a month. I wouldn't mind doing both. January has been good so far and I've doubled the RCs I had this time last year.

Absolutely!


Great to see some people doing so well already... I'm hovering around 7.3% just now, but going to wait until the 3rd Feb to add my figure in.
