Sometimes it can be challenging to stay on track when you’re working to accomplish a larger goal or establish a regular habit. We’ve found, though, that staying motivated and accountable can be easier with a friend. Just use a share link to invite an accountability buddy to join your goals list. You can each add the goals you’d like to accomplish, like hitting the gym three times a week or saving for next year’s trip to Iceland.
According to this study by psychologist Dr. Gail Matthews, sharing a written commitment to your goals with someone else means that you’re significantly more likely to follow through on accomplishing them. With a trusted friend to help keep you accountable, you’re already well on your way to achieving your biggest win yet.
Along the way, you can provide each other with support and encouragement. Just use the Notes field of a task for sharing progress updates and words of inspiration. And as you hit important milestones, remember to celebrate your accomplishments together! Reflecting on what you’ve accomplished so far is key to staying motivated on the road ahead.
