Productivity Hack: Commit and Deliver

Last Update: October 03, 2017

I talk a lot about mindset because I believe it is the primary determinant of success online.

When you commit to do something for someone, it typically gets done. Being a man of your word is one of the most important traits to live up to, and so there is a real power in telling someone that a specific task will be done by a certain time.

This is just as important online, especially if you are working for yourself.

Pick out your most important tasks and commit that it will be done with your partner, an accountability buddy or even your kids. It is then up to you to make sure you deliver.

I will often promise my 4-year-old a trip to the playground when a certain task is done, and my goodness what an impact it has! That task always gets done on time, and I even get helpful reminders during the day to check in on my progress! :)

All the best, and I hope you are having a fantastic start to the month.

Tommy.

I love how your child became your accountability buddy. I should ask my daughter that she is still too young to understand the task.
