Blocking time in my calendar is really useful. I call it “appointments with myself” and I do it for things like finances on Wednesday morning, and doing social media and blogging every afternoon.

Lately, though, I wasn’t doing the blogging or social media.

Even though the times were in my calendar, I simply wasn’t honouring them.

I find that some days, my self-discipline is good. Other days, I suck. (And I say that without judgement).

What I’ve found I need is a witness. Some outside accountability.

Some of my clients are having the same revelation. One said recently “I need to give myself permission to accept it’s ok I need a witness. It’s not a flaw. It’s simply the way I learn.”

Are you similar? Do you find you work best when you have a witness?
