Variant of retrorachet that dials back the steepness?
Say I spend a weekend working hard on a goal and end up about a week ahead. (Concrete example: I'm going through a textbook and converting vocabulary to flashcards, beeminding pages processed.)
At this point ... well, I'm a week ahead, and Beeminder's not going to give me any incentive for all those days till I get close to eep again.
If I want to destroy that buffer and continue at the same rate with a sooner goal date, I can retroratchet.
But with the goal being less about working hard (like exercise goals or bad habits are) and more about getting a thing completed, can there be a way to destroy the buffer and continue with the same goal date at a gentler rate?
i.e. if one considers retroratcheting as (roughly speaking) compressing the road along the X axis, this would be (roughly speaking) compressing the road along the Y axis.
(I'm not sure if this would be considered a violation of the akrasia horizon — on the one hand it is making things easier in the long run, but on the other hand we are still going from 'nothing due for a week' to 'something due in a day or two'.)
