My accumulated spending on Beeminder just exceeded $1,000

I very much agree with this and I’m realizing that our blog posts about this focus on one extreme – if you’re never derailing, dial up your bright red lines! – and neglect the other extreme: if you’re always derailing, dial down your bright red lines. It’s definitely about dialing in the sweet spot where you’re getting pushed to be awesomer but not pushed so hard that you’re, y’know, less awesome.

Thanks for pointing this out!
