Good job!
Hello everyone,

Since my one year pro plan has just a little over a month left, I’m in the middle of deciding whether to go for a yearly subscription or a permanent membership.

I would love to hear opinions from those of you who have been through similar decisions and your thoughts on how it turned out.

I am currently enrolled in both SoundGym and ToneGym, and I'm considering joining GuitarGym as well, so it is quite a financial burden to get permanent memberships for all three, even during discounts.

However, as a person with high anxiety, it is hard to shake off the feeling that my ear training skills will fade over time if I stop training.

Your opinions would be very much appreciated.

From my perspective - time is the most important asset, money can be earned and lost but time is never gained, so think about that, what do you think is the best way to spend your limited time? doing all 3 subscriptions, doing 2 or 1 or none, you know the answer what's important for you, what will give bring the most meaning to your life.

if you're still not sure - ask yourself honestly why you need all of those subscriptions, what's motif and intention behind it, try to ask yourself and get deeper into it. Yes, it might take your time now, but you'll save a ton later. When you get things clear - take courage to act upon it, you'll find resources to do so.

My answer might not be exactly what you were looking for, but that's how I felt and thought when read your post.
Cheers!

I'm definitely going to re-up for another annual membership. I'm just not ready for a lifetime commitment, but, like you, I feel the need to keep the ear training going. ToneGym with the exercises waiting for me everyday, helps me keep up the training. Good luck with making this decision!

@Cuantas Vacas You're so kind! I can highly recommend retirement. You just don't know how fabulous it is until you stop working at that job. Amazing liberation! I expect you will completely dive into your music. It is great being part of this community!
