If you have an important deadline or goal, it helps to have somebody to whom you are accountable. This is especially important when freelancing, since you lack the corporate structure that usually comes with its own accountability in the form of your boss.
Since I made my earnings goal announcement earlier this week, you my blog followers have become my accountability. Progress as I “close business” this Saturday night:
- Total Earnings Goal: $2250
- Total Earnings This Week: $2,385
- Earning Compared to Benchmark: 107%
- Progress Toward of Total Goal: 12%
Just posting this publicly helps motivate me to stay on track. Thanks, as always, for listening.
Many thanks to Tom Callos, my friend and mentor, whose Ultimate Black Belt Test taught me the value of blogging progress toward important goals.
