For example, a goal to spend X hours per week on a certain project. If one finishes the project early, or the project gets cancelled, you’ll be left with (at most) a week left over of a goal that needs to be updated but cannot be.
Or a goal that just doesn’t make sense anymore. I had a set of ladder goals to build the habit of cycling on my stationary bike. One binary goal to track getting on my bike, another to do at least 10 minutes cycling, another to do 30 minutes, and yet another goal to track total of minutes on the bike.
After some time, it became evident that I had established a strong habit of daily exercise over 30 minutes, and I only need the one final goal to track total minutes, and no longer need the three additional “ladder goals”.
I suppose one way is to message support. But I don’t necessarily like interacting with humans for something like this… that’s a little odd to me. Maybe that’s just The Beeminder Way and I need to get used to that?
