Yeah it’s super true. The first comment (about quitting Duolingo when the chain breaks) happened to me too.
I like the comment in the footnote: “For some people, avoiding giving Beeminder their credit card is itself powerful motivation.”
I know it’s been said before, maybe often and maybe in different ways. But for some reason it hit me this time. It describes me perfectly. I still have one freebee left and I think I only had one legitimate derailment so far.
The day will eventually come that I need to give you my card. But the four things I’m Beeminding are constant and about all I can track right now. When I find the need to use my last freebee, I’ll be even more motivated.
