I think this is an important question. I have used Beeminder through some pretty bonkers times, and I credit it a lot for helping me back on my feet as fast as I can
I would suggest that if you are having difficulty getting things done, to make a temporary adjustment to how much you have to do, or adjust the rate.
On the other hand, if you are having difficulty entering data… Maybe the right answer is to say ok, this happens, but maybe the right answer is to double down on entering data!
I don’t know what your goals are, but nice work getting them done even though things are busy. Is Beeminder actually harder to get done, or is it a case of “doing the work is important, and Beeminder can wait”?
I don’t want to advocate anything unhealthy, but for me, it’s important to realize Beeminder is nearly as important as any individual goal–I wouldn’t do nearly as much of what I really want to do without it.
You know you, and this may be way off base, but maybe it helps!
