I’m a big fan of holding yourself accountable. There are a lot of ways to do that, and one of the best ways I’ve found that keeps me motivated, is to make my training public. It’s not that I want the world to know how great I am (well maybe I do), rather, I need to know, for whatever reason, that I’ve made a public commitment to achieve a goal (50 mile run, 405 deadlift…) and that I will stick to it.
Making goals can be hard, sticking with them even harder. By making my training and the efforts public, I’ve added a layer of accountability that whether the observing public is aware, they are helping me. In return, I hope that the information from my training successes and failures is also useful.
In the end, we’re all working towards that elusive quality of being “better” than we used to be. Social Media can be used for good. It’s helped me, and I’ve been informed, it has inspired others.
Keep at it!Tweet
