Sebastian Marshall and Public Accountability


One of my favorite bloggers is Sebastian Marshall. He talks a lot about how to get things done, how to achieve your goals, and how to win at whatever you do. He’s one of the people who set me on the path to actually ship projects instead of starting them, getting bored halfway through and then getting a new idea and repeating the process.

I wanted to use this post today to a. link you to his blog, and b. take on of the steps he suggests to achieve your goals. In one of my favorite of his posts he talks about using public accountability to get things done. He talks about how committing publicly to a goal will motivate you to achieve it more than almost any other thing. So here goes:

I want to post on this blog once a day for 30 days.

It doesn’t have to be a long post, or a deep post – it just has to be something. This isn’t about getting a bunch of visitors, and becoming a real blogger. It’s about setting a goal and sticking to it. So that’s what I’m going to do. If you don’t see a post here between now and March 26th (I started this blog on February 26th). feel free to email me and berate me.

But I don’t think that’s going to happen. I’m going to get this done.
