I started having a discussion with the rest of the Beeminder folks about when is sick non-legit for me, and the conversation threatened to get interesting enough we thought we should be more public about it
I am personally blessed with pretty decent health and no chronic illnesses. Since I’ve got 2 little kiddos in the household, I get sick quite a bit more often, but we’re talking maybe two or three times a year where I’m out for more than maybe 2 days, and those usually wrap up within five days or so–with a smattering of “off days” beside that.
I have a few goals I do every day, but they represent maybe five minutes of effort, and I’ve been able to get through those through all my various illnesses in the past few years–but if you add up all my non-legits, data entry errors are #1, and being sick is #2.
I have plenty of times where if I’m sick, I’m not going to make progress on most of my goals–but I also am starting to feel that for some of my goals where I have to do one thing every 45 days, with my current level of health, really, I should be able to get them done whether I’m sick or not. If I’m sick on the eep day, well, maybe I should have finished it up with more buffer.
Currently, I call non-legit when I’m sick basically 100%, with no qualms at all.
Please don’t take anything I’m saying as a suggestion for you. be safe and kind to yourself.
