Accountability...

Okay, so one of the things that I have learned about myself is that I need to be accountable to someone other than just me when it comes to getting projects done. This applies to all projects, whether they be personal or professional, meeting deadlines and goals is always easier if I announce them to someone else. It's why I love taking courses, because not only do I love studying and learning in the company of others, but I know that I will accomplish more when I have to. So how to still accomplish when there is no one keeping track but me?

Well, this week I am taking part in not one but two accountability groups. The first is with a great group of talented gals that I met on line and then in person through Rochelle Shapiro's personal essay writing course, and the other is with a dear friend of mine who is also a self employed, self motivated, actor/writer ...and a virtual doppelganger except for the fact that she is 15 years younger. But all of us women share a desire to achieve more, do more, write more and so starting today we began the week by announcing our goals to each other with the intention that they will be met by our self imposed deadlines, of one to two weeks.

I think this is a great idea! And I really believe it will work, after all none of us wants to disappoint the other and knowing that we are out here in cyber space cheering each other on, is a great help indeed.
