Boss as a Service (BaaS)

Ever noticed that it's hard to get stuff done when you're not accountable to someone? And it's way easier to get work stuff done when you have your boss breathing down your neck? Boss as a Service provides that kind of accountability for whatever kind of quantifiable goal you like, even non-work tasks, and they've partnered with Beeminder to provide some extra sting for those who are interested in having something at stake.

What can I beemind with Boss as a Service?

Anything you need accountability to get done! You can agree with your Boss how you're going to use Beeminder goals to track your to-dos, and how they're going to hold you accountable.

How does it work?

First, you need to sign up with Boss as a Service.
Once you've got on board with them, set up a goal on Beeminder for something you want to track, and send your Boss the link. You could set up a Do More goal for working out, for example: each time you send your Boss proof you've been working out, they'll submit a datapoint to Beeminder for that goal for you.
You won't have to worry about adding data yourself, and you'll have to provide proof of completion in order for them to add data, so it's a great way to create extra accountability around something you find difficult.

Can I use a Do Less goal with BaaS?

Absolutely! Just make sure you turn off Pessimistic Presumptive Datapoints, because your boss will only send data to your goal when you fail (while PPRs assume you're going to add data every day).
