The 1000 Rep Month: Day 13

Lia was asking me how my motivation is doing, and my answer was “It’s pretty weak.” Which is probably the point of this whole thing. If I was naturally motivated to do this on my own, it wouldn’t be necessary to force myself to do it by holding myself publicly accountable to all of you.

So motivation really isn’t the key to getting something done, for me anyway. It’s more promising someone else (or a group of people) that you’ll do it. So far this little experiment shows that I’m more likely to stay true to a commitment if I know people are watching. But won’t I just quit after the 70 videos are done? At this point, that sounds very attractive. But Google says I’ll have formed the habit by then, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
