Creativity Tips: Feet to the Fire

OK, it's April. How's that New Year's resolution coming? Heck, forget resolutions. How are you doing on any goals -- creative or otherwise -- you've set for yourself?

If you're not accomplishing what you want, consider the accountability factor.

My sister Eva and I had been doing great on losing weight and maintaining our weight loss. Then, we stopped the monthly weigh-ins. (Before, we each weighed on the last day of the month. Then, Eva would call me and we'd have to report the results.)

Turns out, that teeny tiny bit of accountability made all the difference in the world. Fortunately, we figured that out before too much weight crept back.

Want to succeed? Set a measurable goal. And have someone hold you accountable!
