To me, it doesn’t make sense that if I have a long-term goal that my pledges would increase every time I derail. It’s like I’m paying for my past mistakes forever. If I want to run every day for a year and I miss a few times, then I could be paying $90 or more each time even though I’m staying mostly consistent.
However, it might make more sense for pledges to increase in time frames that reset at intervals. If I have a year goal, I might want my pledges to reset every 30 days. So if I miss a few times in one month, then my pledges keep increasing. But the next month, I get a clean slate to try again.
For other goals, I might want a weekly focus.
To achieve, this I’ve thought of just creating a Beeminder goal that ends each month/week. But I have 15 goals and that would start to feel like a pain to do that manually all the time.
Also, I would be willing to pay for this feature. Maybe others would too.
