2013 Goals

I don't have them.  But I think I should make them. In public. And have some accountability, like, for every goal segment not reached I have to donate a dollar to a charity I hate.  The Tea Party?  And what's a hurtful number of goal segments? $100 isn't enough. I'm thinking $250.

More later, as I figure this all out. Suggestions for figuring this out welcome!

Hmm. I will buy that you're benevolent to yourself. But I tend to think of a DSLR as a useful creative tool, whereas the Tea Party is...not that kind of tools...so I'm the wrong person to ask whether it's too benevolent. I just...if you have to come up with a negative consequence, is it more effective to you to punish the rest of us if you have a bad writing month? That's a genuine, not a rhetorical, question. Because to me there's a difference in scope between "Mer has to do thing she doesn't like" and "Mer has to do thing she doesn't like that negatively affects the rest of the world," and on the one hand, while I like neither, I prefer the former to the latter--and yet on the other hand I could see why that might make the latter a more effective threat to you.

It just makes me nervous when people are working under threats at all.

Heh, okay. Yeah. Punishing the rest of the world is not the goal of this goal, by any means, if I were to fail. (Granted, with a consequence like that, I don't think I would.)
