Gonna be accountable! YIKES!

Last Update: April 27, 2016

Okay, so I've decided, with the help of another WA'er, to "be accountable" to someone other than myself (her, namely). I've agreed to a "pact" that, since I do spend more time than is good replying, commenting, welcoming, etc., I'd spend only 1 hr. max/ day on that great stuff I love (community makes my heart sing) and then I'd spend a MINIMUM of 2 hrs./day on tweaking my site, researching more of my topic material, posting, etc.

So, that's the plan.

The only reason I'm posting this is I think it might be a plan some of you may want to adopt, as well. This WA'er (name shall remain anonymous to protect ... whatever...) and I have decided to "check in" with each other on a once-weekly basis to see one another's progress. I came up with this idea when my one, brilliant brain cell I've left decided to fire up and function, LOL.

Let me know what you all think ...

Be blessed with success! ~Gail

Raleigh, NC? great place to live, David. The "accountable to someone" model is an oldy but goodie...I know that I have trouble keeping focused for myself, but no problem at all focusing for others LOL. This little "pact" will help me be more balanced.

I am catching up on all my followups and haven't spent any time on research, classes, any of that.
But I had a lot of email (5000) that I let accumulate. I have gone thru and addressed the asaps, but the good and bad mixed together. I ignored, until yesterday. And I resolved that I will go thru email to keep up to date, staying on top of Facebook and Pinterest. Maybe later I can do a class. Also taking care of my 4 month old grandson.
But reading your blog, woke me up. Thanks
And I believe I have the theme for my next blog.

LOL, Mike - I know what you mean! I don't think (even tho I have over 3,000 twitter followers) I ever really learned HOW to use twitter properly! I'm hoping there will be a training here at WA for it.

Absolutely....I just have WAY too much fun with all the WA'ers here. I love the community here...but am going to "measure out" my time so I'm more balanced. Can't wait to see your site, Gillian! Let me know when you go "live"!
