For those people who want to work on small daily actions to achieve bigger goals (check out ‘The Slight Edge’ by Jeff Olsen for some great content on that) we use the Geekbot in Slack to keep us accountable.
Every morning at 8am, Geekbot messages you to ask how you are, whether you did yesterday’s 20 minute task and what today’s task will be.
It also asks if anything is likely to get in the way.
Then Geekbot posts this in the #accountability channel for us all to see and offer our support. This, of course, isn’t compulsory but it can be really helpful in keeping you on track.
Just make sure that you have first identified what your ‘small daily actions’ for 20 mins are going to be otherwise that becomes one of the barriers to doing this!
Every Friday at 4pm, Geekbot asks us a random question designed to help us to get to know each other better. When you reply to the question it gets posted in the #intros channel so that we can all see your answer!
