Neen James and Folding Time bookOn March 14th, 2020 my Facebook post read:
SHARE ONE PROJECT YOU WILL COMPLETE WHILE YOU ARE QUARANTINED!
LET’S BE ACCOUNTABLE TO EACH OTHER!
I believe PUBLIC accountability drives PRIVATE accountability.
Tell someone and you are more likely to get it done!
During this time when some of you might be spending more time at home, what is one project you’d like to get completed in the next 2 weeks?
Let’s share below and hold each other accountable!
I will check on you.
Let me be your accountability partner.
Here’s my list:
1. Workout with my JMethod Travel Gym EVERY DAY
2. Find a photo digitizing service to send 30 years of photos
3. Facetime or Zoom with one friend EVERY day
4. Write one thank you note EVERY day
5. Complete Well Dressed Life Wardrobe challenge
6. Meditate for 10+ minutes EVERY day
7. Walk 10K steps before 10 am
8. Complete a Peloton workout EVERY day
9. Drink 3+ liters of water daily.
10. Outline my latest book
You read it here. YOU can check on me too!
Let’s do this together.
You are not alone.
Let me help you.
Let’s help each other.
Well, that was an obscene and ridiculous amount of projects I would get completed. Here’s what actually happened:
I promised to stay accountable so here’s my list:
1. Workout with my JMethod Travel Gym EVERY DAY – I did workout and managed to get to pullups … but a ridiculous amount of comfort/stress/sadness/boredom eating meant my waist expanded while my muscles didn’t! 
2. Find a photo digitizing service to send 30 years of photos – took me 2 years to finally get this together but am happy I chose Everpresent to complete this for me (it’s pricey but will be worthwhile, especially as my family lost everything in the recent Australian floods so now I can share my pictures with them)
3. Facetime or Zoom with one friend EVERY day – yes in the early days but I quickly got tired of being on camera all day every day for 12-14 hours+ per day.
4. Write one thank you note EVERY day YES I did do this and still do – it’s a habit, it’s a system! 
5. Complete Well Dressed Life Wardrobe challenge YES I did this too, Megan’s system is so easy to follow and I donated many items to others who need them more than me and it felt great.
6. Meditate for 10+ minutes EVERY day Not always 10 minutes but absolutely every day – yep this is a great system for every day and it helped me emotionally and mentally during COVID.
7. Walk 10K steps before 10 am NOPE I was able to walk but quickly stopped wearing my FitBit as I was sitting all day and it was annoying (and a little depressing) knowing I wasn’t hitting my target! 
8. Complete a Peloton workout EVERY day MOST days I either cycled, yoga-ed, meditated, etc but not EVERY day
9. Drink 3+ liters of water daily. NOPE this is a big challenge for me every day and I am still working on it 
10. Outline my latest book so … here’s the thing, I actually DID outline it, had it approved by the publisher and edited by their publisher, and even shown to brilliant CEOs for sales companies who liked it too… but then I scrapped the whole project! WHY? Because it would have made no sense to write and publish a book when the world was in crisis, so glad I didn’t! Writing and publishing are hard enough but given the insanity of the past few years so glad I didn’t do it. 
So how did you do?
Did you think you’d achieve more in COVID and then find you didn’t get it all done?
Or maybe you were one of those rockstars that crushed your COVID experience? I’d love to hear from you
