Tweet Me When You’re Finished

It’s time for action. No, strike that. It’s time to act. When you distill your Grand Plans into single actionable steps you will find the transition from innovation to implementation much much easier. Make it easy on yourself to be proactive by articulating each incremental step and set a time by which you will take that step, perform that action, make that phone call, send that email, ect. Creating accountability in the age of social media is as easy as asking. Post your goal and deadline as your status update and ask your friends to hold you to it. The odds are pretty good that someone you know would be more than happy to do this for you. If that seems like too much pressure then tell a trusted friend, or collaborator that you’re going to accomplish X by Y time and that you’ll text them when you’re finished. Offer to do the same for them in return. If you have not completed the specified task by the specified time, tell them when you will. Don’t beat yourself up, just get it done. There are lots of problems that are too big or complex to fix all at one time, but that does not mean that you can’t start acting on them incrementally right now. Really, right now. As in TODAY between Noon and 2:00, and go ahead and tweet me @LoomisBurton when you’re finished.
