…When you’re stuck on something or feeling a bit isolated and want support and/or accountability.
Welcome to ProNagger’s Accountability Chat, a free service to help you stay on task.
I honestly couldn’t have finished my manuscript without this service, thanks Nag – author
The chat has been my dissertation life saver!
The chat helps me motivate. -Aj
I don’t think I would have gotten a thing done today without it. - SW
The chat keeps me focussed – I’m easily sidetracked – and it’s also a record of the amount of time things take. -Rose
It feels good to “woot” other people! -Rose
It motivates me to see others do their tasks -K
Sandwich each task between check-ins called “bookends.”
Here’s how it works.
- Commit to doing something. Write OPEN BOOKEND: and post the action you’re about to take. For the best results, you should plan to go do your committed activity right after you send your update.
- Go do your committed activity. Nothing is too big or too small. Bookends are best when the activity is one step or lasts 5, 10 or no more than 30 minutes. A one step bookend might be “go call my father.” A 10 minute action might be “10 focused minutes on revising first section of my manuscript.”
- Close the bookend. Come back to the chat and let us know you accomplished what you set out to do.
- Repeat. Start another bookend.
This community will hold your feet to the fire and congratulate you once you have taken even the smallest step forward. Keep conversation to a minimum and bookend as much as you want, this chat is for you.
Now and then I will run marathons you wont want to miss! Subscribe below to insure you get all the details.
So go, bookend. I’ll be here myself as a part of the community, doing my own bookends.
Important: This page is like a drive-thru. Make your commitments and then go do them.
