I have a time-based “do more” goal which I’m intensely akratic about, and I set myself a low weekly target of an hour a week to start with. As a result I found myself doing just the minimum 9 minutes. That’s too small a slice of time to get much useful done on this goal, so I’m not doing myself any favours here.
I could just up the time – and in fact I will – but I do want to start slow (especially because I have a bunch of other goals that I’ve also started recently).
I would like to stick to mostly time-based tracking because it’s the easiest thing to measure, and as long as I do a reasonable amount of time, that usually corresponds to real progress. But right now, I’m slicing up the time too thin.
How do other people deal with that? I thought about maybe an aggday that counts for nothing unless it’s more than half an hour, for example (though I don’t see one in the beeminder docs)?
