I have a few goals like this:
Ignore what the goal is for, but notice the following things. A relatively flat road–this one is new, but once I have the goal where I want it, the road will be literally flat. Notice that the datapoints tend to increase 1 day per day, until I process the oldest item, and then it goes to zero or so.
I don’t really like them, but they make me keep inboxes moving and are basically essential to me not getting stuck on harder things and only processing easy things.
My issue: these goals get lost in the 65 other goals I have. Beeminder doesn’t realize that my goals are increasing at 1 day per day by default. If I have to make progress 4 days from now, Beeminder doesn’t know that, and thinks I have most of an infinity to dink around.
When this sort of issue happens, usually I am abusing Beeminder and need to ask for help.
I am ok solving this in many ways: restructuring my goal, writing a program to do things for me, waiting since a good solution is a few months away–basically anything except fix the part of my brain that most people have that allows them to have inboxes without ignoring the hard parts.
Apologies if this is something simple I’ve just missed.
