Coming soon, and just in time for the new year, it’s The Doable Change Daily Productivity Group. Apply here now!
Here are some answers to the top five most frequent questions we’ve seen so far:
What is this group? We meet online or something?
Yes, we meet online, but you don’t have to be on camera or even on the phone or anything. On a daily basis (weekdays only), this is a forum-based community group that you check in to by 9am where ever you are that day. No one is there taking attendance, but if you’re not there with something posted by 9am, there are (mild) consequences. When checking in you list the Top 3 Most Important Tasks for your day, these are three of the things that you are committed to completing. They could be big, could be small, personal or professional. There is other stuff you could do in this group, such as giving/receiving additional support, but the just stating your three things every day is the core of it.
I don’t understand the payment structure, please explain.
It’s simple, really. $29/month to have full access to our community. That’s in USD, payable via major credit card or PayPal.
Then for every day that you uphold your commitment to check in with your Top 3 Most Important Tasks by 9am your local time, you get credited a day in the following month. So if you show up every day of the month, the next month is FREE! You can keep rolling it over like that as long as you want. Any days you didn’t show up for whatever reason will be charged in the following month.
For example, if you miss five days in January, you’ll get charged $5 for access to our Daily Productivity Group in February. Show up every day in February, and March is free! Miss ten days in March, April will cost you $10 bucks. Like that. We don’t worry about some months having more or less days than others so you shouldn’t either.
Why are we doing it this way? Because we’re seeking to incentize active participation, that’s why. We’d rather have you sharing as part of our community than making money from you.
What if I’m going to be out of town or on vacation or can’t make it for some reason?
That’s totally fine! No one cares why you take a day off, we just miss you when you’re gone is all. The following month of participation will cost you a dollar for every day you miss.
What’s with the 9am time? I’m not sure that works for me.
That part is arbitrary, and if that time is prohibitive for you, just let us know. We needed to pick some time that was the same for everyone to keep things clear and easy. After some testing, it seems that this works for most people. But remember you don’t have to be there at right at nine o’clock, you simply need to post before then to be counted. So anytime that day before 9am works. 12:01am? Great! 9:01am? Not so great.
What is declaring my 3 most important tasks supposed to do for me?
What it does do is make you conscious of what you’re doing, and more importantly what you’re not doing. No one is there to bug you about the specifics of your choices, just to support you in making those choices conscious. This starts with being specific about what three things you are committed to moving from the “doing” category to the “done” category with the day before you. The mere act of stating this out loud, where the rest of the community can see you, helps you act more accountably to yourself. All the other aspects of the daily productivity group, and in fact all the other offerings at Doable Change, are based on this core approach to conscious awareness of our choices, and making constructive habits that support this.
