Accountability Corner – Step 2 – Project Ideas

“Accountability Corner – Step 2 – Project Ideas” by Joan Y. Edwards

If you’re like me, there are a few things you’ve put off doing for varying reasons and excuses. Here in Accountability Corner, I want to help you focus on getting a few of these projects done.  It could be you’ve promised yourself that you’ll do something new, bake a cake, go to a local museum, take your kids to the park, watch your favorite movie. Let’s brainstorm a few project ideas. Below I’ve listed a few ideas. I listed sites with projects for varying amounts of time. There are millions more in your imagination. But there is one dwelling in your heart that you really want to work on. That is great. If you’re already sure which one that is, go for it. These are here if you want to brainstorm more…food for your thought.

ow that you’ve read and studied all the ideas of projects you want to accomplish in 2023, choose the one(s) you wish to focus on first.
Make a note of it.
What is your project?
Needed tools and supplies to complete it.
Can you complete it in 5 days? If not, how many days will it take you to finish this project? Make a guess.

Now that you have your idea for a project, you can go to fill in your Accountability Project Plan and designate when you will start and when you plan to complete it.

Remember: Do it and the energy will come. Start and the energy (excitement, knowledge, skills, resources, and stick-to-it-ness) you need will come to help you finish.
