While the Facebooks and Twitters are good for announcing what you had for lunch (please don’t!) or that cool viral video you saw, these social media tools are good for building some accountability.
Right now. Get on your favorite social media site. Announce your new project, your goal for the day, (like a word count if you’re a writer) and hit Send. Then get to work. After you’re done, announce whether you met your goal. Be honest here; post both your successes and your failures.
You’ll probably find someone who is watching and pulling for you.
