I used Beeminder extensively a few years ago, until I eventually suffered from goal burnout.
It did work for me for very simplistic goals like weight but not for what I have realized is what I really need: Some kind of personal project manager. I’m actuall quite good at working focused if a concrete goal is set and I have to live up to social expectations. Monetary, not so much.
Beeminder used to have this personal assistant-level as their highest tier, as far as I remember. But it looks like it’s not available any more. And it was a bit more than I can afford anyway.
So does anybody know of any service where you can have some kind of project manger for for instance one Skype/IM meeting pr. week?
Or maybe a website where you set goals with other people and keep each other accountable? That might work as well.
I’ve tried a lot of different productivity systems the last 10 years and I feel like I have not really gotten anywhere substantial. And I’m tired of having a lot of ideas and skills as not being able to finish most of my projects.
