I started this post as an open ended question, but I figured out the solution, so I’ll leave the post up.
I’d like to Beemind changing my car oil at least once a year. I don’t drive much, about 5,000 mi/year, so one year happens to be just about the right.
However, I could easily derail by waiting until it’s a beemergency, and then not having the time to do it that day. So I’ll beemind to make an appointment to change my oil. That gives me flexibility when it comes due. I can make the appointment for any day that’s convenient.
I guess that sounds obvious after saying it, but I wasn’t sure about it when first thinking about it.
