Wanted: Accountability Partners

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this video on YouTube. It’s about forming a weekly accountability group. Please watch it if you’d like:

Okay. Done? :)

I think it’s a brilliant idea to have an accountability group with goals that are tailored to individual members. I’ve been in groups like “100 words a day” or something, which is great for some people, but for me, I need more flexibility. I don’t (and sometimes can’t) write 100 words/day, and there are times when I want to take a week off to read or do research or whatever.

I also thought identifying the most highly leveraged activity(ies) for each week was fantastic. Not all activities are created equal, and some give you better return than the others.

So I figured I’d create a group. Laura (the lady who made the video) said she does it over the phone, but I thought maybe a mailing group might be easier, so people can post their previous week’s results and share their new week’s goals with the group on weekends.

Anybody with me? If so, sign up below or click here. To make the group more manageable, I’m thinking about limiting it to about 4-6 serious career-minded writers.

Thanks!

    Signing up. :D By the way, I’d like to add you to my christmas card list, if that’s all right with you, but I have no address…T_T

    Don’t worry. You won’t get mail bombs. Although, I can’t promise you won’t get sickeningly cute cards. Sometimes the latter can be worse than the former, LOL.

    I can confirm this is an EXCELLENT way to hold yourself accountable and get things done. I have a one-on-one accountability partner I’ve been using since 2007 or so and I know she’s helped me get a significant amount of work done.

    I would like to join if there is any space still. It sounds good I normally plan on weekends what I want to get done but sometimes I just don’t have much motivation this would be great.

    Sam — Check your Twitter DM. I must warn you though that I don’t do Christmas cards in case you want one from me. I don’t mind if you decide not to send me one as a result. :)

    Joely — I know. I used to have one, but it kinda … fizzled. I want to start again.

    Contessica — I see your pending app. See you on the loop. :)
