Calling all Beeminders to share for the collective improvement of each other’s lives.
Without being overly dramatic or cliche about it, I’m on a mission to discover all the most effective/“life-changing” Beeminder goals/habits.
These would include both specific goals/habits and/or methods of tracking them that have been most effective.
I’ve archived most of my goals except one due to a big move to another state and starting a new chapter in life, and since we are around the halfway point of 2017 I’m ready to kick it back into high gear.
Ive always been in search for the “optimal” everything, and while everyone is different, I’m sure it would be fascinating for everyone to see what goals have made the biggest impact for people
in quality of life, productivity, fiscal responsibility, health, etc. Im sure everyone has heard of Keystone habits and how they can influence many aspects of peoples lives.
Its interesting how certain habits have leverage over many others, and would be equally interesting to know what would happen if one applied the maximum amount of leverage to his/her pursuit of excellence by focusing primarily or even exclusively on these keystone behaviors that make the most difference in life and work
The basic questions:
What 1-2 goals have made the biggest difference in your own life or work life, regardless of whether you have a perfect track record on them?
-For me, its beeminding my working hours, down to the minute, it has enabled me to be more consistent, more flexible, and ultimately more proficient in my performance.
It has improved my confidence and ability to focus in general in life as well. dealing with a physical injury related to my work(I’m a musician) beeminder has saved my ability to perform by forcing me to be consistent and allowing me the freedom to be flexible when necessary.
*If this post exists somewhere else in some other context i apologize, but thought it was in interesting question.
