I’m currently reworking a lot of goals to start prioritizing my health in a more meaningful way, and take the advice I’ve received from my doctor re: fatigue. That has meant taking a carving knife to existing goals to give room for the changes to take place, and then slowly adding new goals to support the new behaviors I’m trying to introduce.
|Number of goals||43|
|New goals this week||1|
|Goals scheduled for archive||15|
|Newest goal||upgrades (2019-09-16)|
|Oldest goal||worktime (2018-06-05)|
|Highest pledge||deflate ($30.0)|
|Derails this week||1|
|Systems upgrades this week||3|
- upgrades: Created 2019-09-16. This goal will be replacing all the separate upgrades goals I currently have. I’m not sure this will be as effective as having a goal for each type of upgrade (productivity, community, finance, etc), but combining them into one is part of making room for health behaviors.
- tr-time: 2019-09-17. Not much to say about this one. I derailed.
Scheduled for Archive
Scheduling all these goals for archive was hard to do, since almost all of them make my life demonstrably better. But there’s only so much you can fit into one life, and I needed the space to make significant changes.
Related, I think if I had the ability to specify weekly days off, like weekends off but for all the days of the week, my “beeminder bandwidth” would be higher. Because I’m pretty sure fielding 5-minute beemurgencies every weekday takes a lot more mental bandwidth and creates a lot more stress than would having to do the same behavior for 30 minutes every Sunday. (I know, I could just get ahead on my own, but I’m an edge skater. Hence, why I use Beeminder.)
A skeleton of this summary was generated using a Python script and then carefully filled in by hand.
