Allow me to increase my contract amount
I realized that the goal that I set for myself is too low and doesn't provide enough of an incentive. What I'd like to do is to increase my contract amount without actually falling off the yellow brick road.
Andreas, if you see this, please reply! We need to credit you with thinking of this so early.

Well said, Andreas! Actually, I'm noticing that this was super prescient and we should credit you in http://blog.beeminder.com/shortcircuit -- got a URL for us to use for you?
And thanks for the reminder to close this, mektah!
This has been implemented with short-circuiting, hasn't it?
I really like this idea. This could be implemented by charging a one-time fee for every goal that one wants to increase the contract amount of. Preferably, this fee would be lower than the (e.g.) 5+10+30+90+270=$405 that one would have to pay to get a $810 contract.
