Each week in November, starting on Halloween, I’m going to run 30 miles.
Each week I don’t, I owe my sister an ice cream sundae, payable via gift card to a local place in her area.
If I complete all four weeks, she’ll get me a $20 gift card to a local food place.
As we got talking about accountability and habits, we somehow started about books, and how she has so many and doesn’t read them.
So now my challenge to her is to read five chapters a week, starting on Halloween.
Yeah, shouting to the internet that I’m going to do something is one thing. Posting it on social media is one thing, sure, seen by 30% of my followers because of algrorithims and such.
But a person to person accountability… I don’t know. Something feels more solid about that to me.
Like texting or a calling a friend, instead of just posting something to the internet.
Saving my cute joke, or cat photo with someone whose number I have in my phone.
Anyways – that’s my challenge for next month, I guess. And the biggest part of it will now be daily check ins with my sister. I’m going to run more. She’s going to read more.
