What are your favorite accountability tools?

When there's a lot to do, do the hardest thing first

As we enter the new year, you probably have big goals in place for success. I know I do. Whether it's publishing those 3 articles per week or finally getting your sales team on camera, it takes commitment and dedication to reach those goals. That means doing the work every day.

Hopefully you're coming back to work today feeling refreshed and energized but let's be honest - it still gets dark early, we're all still dragging a little from the holiday indulgence, and I know I personally am still thinking about the unfinished Netflix shows I started binging. (The Circle anyone?)

So how do we hold ourselves accountable to do the work and make progress toward those goals?

Let me know your favorite accountability tools, apps, or even just habits you use to stay focused! Drop 'em in the comments.

Here's mine:
1. Google Keep checklists (or your favorite checklist app) are my lifeline

2. Time-blocking on my calendar (even if I'm meeting-free, I often put time on the calendar for important tasks so I use that time to do them especially when I know I'll be particularly focused such as in the mornings).

3. Have a "one thing" for the day. What's your one thing you must do to make today a success even if nothing else gets done? Make sure you get that thing done!

I also find ambient music / scenes on YouTube help me stay focused! Today's vibe is this one.

WOW Steph!! I did a lot of research on keeping myself more organized.  I came across Google Keep.  I can't believe I didn't know a thing about this app.  It's now on my home screen and it's linked to everything possible.  I love the voice notes to text, the integration with Google docs, and the ease of adding images to notes.  This is going to be a game-changer for me.  Some of my best ideas come throughout the day.  Keep gives me a method of capturing the thoughts that race through my mind during the day.  Now I have to set a reminder to dump all of my ideas into Clickup and the end of the day.
