A neat side effect of having the All Green goal was that, even though I could have taken the entire weekend off (because everything was green), I found myself strategically adding three or four goals to my list each day Saturday and Sunday, in preparation for the coming week.
Yes—what made Friday a heroic effort was the push to move from eep-minding to all-green-minding.
It's just really neat to see that
(a) the heroic push to get All Green was fun, unlike getting everything out of the red which is generally stressful;
(b) my planning strategy has now moved to the weekly level, staggering which goals I'll work on each day to ensure All Green gets a point by next Friday.
Presumably, enforcing all-green more times a week would move my planning progressively closer to the daily level again. It also means that every day would feel equivalent to my usual beemergency day—only with different colors. I suspect I'll be happier keeping it at once a week, as an "extra credit" kind of thing that feels like a fun challenge rather than a daily slog, and enjoying the greater relaxation that the extra buffer gives me in the intervening days.
(By which I mean "feeling less stress from beemergencies," not "slacking off until things are back in the red." In an average week, I may not see any red at all, anymore, but keeping All Green at a low rate means I have buffer should the week be non-average in some unexpected way.)
