Second attempt at Beeminder

I decided to give beeminder another try, and this time making all goals I reasonably can public (as public as I can). Wish me luck. Any feedback very much appreciated.

Why is Magic a goal of yours? Is it to have a social activity?

Noumenon: Standard format changes every 3 months and it's not coming back, I pretty much missed some of them due to lack of time.

Well, as long as you don't use up much actual willpower on it. I just sold all my Magic rares to a store that will sort them for you, I'll be missing all the formats.

I've been scratching my CCG itch playing Card Hunter -- it's like single-player Magic meets D&D, a great free browser game. You might like it --

Noumenon: I'm not convinced by willpower models, but then who knows really.

All my goals are things I enjoy doing, I just don't always remember to allocate time towards. That's why I don't put goals like weight loss (which from body's point of view is self-harm).

Thanks for making a post about willpower/akrasia later on, that was a very interesting perspective.
