I keep thinking I should have some kind of weekly review going on, and this seems like the best possible forum for it, so hey! Here goes. I’m going to try and update every week with a roundup of new goals, archived/deleted goals, and anything I’m struggling on or changing up.
So changes this week:
/bsupport has been retroratcheted for the first time ever, true to @dreev’s wish that more of us would skate the edge on our meta goals. Mostly what I’m learning is that due to being ultimately based on my Tagtime pings, my daily amount can be a bit variable… but it’s often more than the two hours my goal is set to (and almost never less). For now, I’m going to set an autoratchet up, so I never have more than four days of buffer. That feels close enough to the edge that I’m a little uncomfortable… which is probably the sweet spot for a goal that can be variable, while leaving it some ability to push me.
/nailbiting was born! Mostly because I bit a nail down to the quick so badly I had to pad it to be able to type for 2-3 days. My nails goal (do-less) wasn’t working, so now it’s days without nailbiting. Right now I don’t have to try and hit it every day, but 3 times a week feels like a stretch that might do me some good.
/weeklyreview was born, and that’s for this thread!
/water was born, starting very very small with a single glass of water per day. I do not drink enough, ever. If this goal doesn’t work, I’m going to consider a smart water bottle of some sort, but it seemed like a low tech solution might be worth trying first.
/dunwanna was ruthlessly culled. This was designed to make me do things I don’t want to and might otherwise procrastinate, but I don’t think it was really creating any push. It was entirely pointless and toothless, so, g’bye!
/reviewbacklog is retiring with honour. It’s been great for making me write reviews eventually, but it was hard to keep updated and thus derailed frequently but non-legitly. A new goal will replace it as of – actually, now, hang on.
/writethosereviews was born! This is modelled on the same principle as my bookblanket goal, with pretty much the same recipe. Now I get two days after reading a book to a) review it and b) crochet a motif to go in the book blanket.
I don’t feel like there’s anything I’m especially struggling with at the moment, so yay!
