So I’ve been taking a long break from beeminding after making too many goals and getting overwhelmed.
So I want to start again. The problem is that right now I have like 40 or so goals that are all $0 and I’ve just been ignoring them. (I reduced them all to $0 after getting overwhelmed.)
So I think I should either just choose a few of them and bump them up to $1, or archive everything and start over. But I want to somehow preserve all the ones I have now in some fashion because they were part of my system, and because I may want to review them and keep adding more of them back in.
If I just archive them, they’ll get intermingled with my previously archived goals - is there some way to keep them separate but archive them? Is there any easy way to archive them all at once? Maybe prefix the goal names and archive them? Is it reasonable to ask Beeminder support to help with this?
Right now I have widgets for all the 40 or so goals on a side screen on my phone. I was thinking of moving the widgets for the goals that I want to restart to the main screen, and just leaving the rest on the side screen. But then the list widget will still list all the goals I’m not using, unless I archive them. Or maybe I could archive them but leave the widgets on the side screen.
But I have to make sure I know which ones are live and make sure I pay attention to them.
And how do I know how many goals to bring back to start with? Is it too much to bring back 7 of them?
And how do I get back in the habit of remembering to check my goals every day and pay attention to them? I’ve been ignoring them so long it’s become a habit.
I’m having a lot of anxiety about doing this right. Beeminder was the only thing that could actually get me to do things, and then it all fell apart on me, and since then I’ve been really struggling.
Any help you guys could offer would bee appreciated.
