There are some things, like reading, that I really want to do at least x times a week, but it would be great to do y times a week. I'd like to be able to set hard goals (mechanics as they are now) and then a stretch goal. If I'm on track to meet my stretch goal for the week, the line is green; if I'm on track to meet my hard goal, but not my stretch goal, the line is yellow; if I'm not on track at all, it's red. Percentage completion and streaks wouldn't suffer from failing to meet stretch goals. This allows you to set practical goals that won't be so hard to reach that they beat you down, while ado encouraging you to do even better.
Why is this idea declined? It would
be so helpful for motivation
This is so helpful to see how we can push ourselves. It’s the difference between ‘good enough’ and that ‘extra’. I find myself wanting this for business related tasks. For instance, I want to posts 5 x a week on my business IG, but if I can post each day that would be great. It would be fantastic to see how often I’m exceeding that baseline and maybe where my baseline can grow a little.
Excellent idea. So much so that I had planned on suggesting this and would have written it exactly the same. The only change I would do is to denote stretch goals with purple or blue to signal exceptional days/streak/achievement while letting reaching minimum goals to be green.
Great idea. I currently have stretch goals and "floors" saved as two different things. It floods my dashboard
