Hi folks! I have lot of Beeminder goals, and most of them are “maintenance”. I usually use Beeminder to do something, and then once I get good at it, or it is finished, I beemind keeping it good.
For instance, weight, language proficiency, inbox levels, things like that.
I’d like to inspire some discussion about maintenance goals. How many of your goals are maintenance? What sorts of things about maintenance goals are tricky on Beeminder? What parts seem like you’re fighting Beeminder? My personal pet peeve is that Beeminder doesn’t seem to like flat roads sometimes, so I have to add 0.0001 per week or something, and that sometimes the goal colors get confusing too. Also, the language around maintenance goals is sometimes hard to parse, because you’re expecting to be under this road, you’re just setting the road up as a safety net.
