STICKK to it!

29 01 2009

I’ve been at this whole 2-song-per-week thing for about a month, and I’m starting to get used to the routine… One thing that motivates me is a little account I’ve created at stickk.com.

This free resource/community holds me accountable. I get an email every Wednesday – or two emails,Β  or three emails – until I’ve logged in and reported my activity for the week: success or failure. I’ve been able to connect with other songwriters, and have seen a few of my “contacts” reach their goals.

Having an account at stickk.com makes me nag myself… I know Wednesday is coming, and I need to churn out some songs to get there.

If you sign up for an account, you can also opt to leave incentives for yourself… If you fail to reach your goal, you can set an amount and type of charity that YOUR money will go towards! Or you can set any type of consequence you want. Public humiliation, pay a friend, etc. Whatever fits you and motivates you!

For those of you who are serious about setting up personal accountability, this is an effortless resource that will nag you.

If you sign up, find me: mandyt.

Ummm….stickk.com must hate me, because it redirects me to a page that says, “The page you’re looking for wasn’t found.”

Is that happening to anyone else?

Signed up – just have to make sure I don’t ignore those emails now…!

Maybe they should start a home visit service πŸ˜‰

Dude, this sounds like a great idea to keep me on track. That’s why I’m so scared of it.
