Looking for an accountability partner/sponsor
I really want to face my procrastination problem and have already made a plan, which includes a clear goal, start & finish date, motivation, consequences for failure and so on.
I have always tried to tackle my problems alone, but I think it would really help to share it with somebody else and I'm sure I can be of assistance as well.
I am a man from Austria (CET). I am pretty flexible, though, so other time zones shouldn't be a problem. I could contact you for instance via Mail, Messenger or Skype.
My native language is German, but I speak English as well. My current goal regarding procrastination is "just" to start working every day for 10 Minutes, right after I have taken my shower in the morning.
Hope to hear from you - if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I'm interested in an accountability partner.
I work part-time and have very irregular hours, so I might not be able to check in until mid-afternoon on some days.
I live in Toronto, which is in the same time zone as NYC
Also looking for accountability partner
I’m also looking for an accountability partner and we’re in the same time zone. Something
you said hit home with me: “I think it would help to share it with someone.” I
am so sick and tired of my procrastinating and I’m accepting that I can’t
change without help. I don’t want to continue living the way I have been.
So… if you’re interested in supporting each other, let me know. We can try it for a
while and see if we’re compatible as accountability partners.
I prefer communicating by email in the morning but I’m open to other options.
Hope to hear from you,
thanks for your message. I sent you a pm!
Hi Mika, I'm not available as an action partner right now but just wanted to say that your idea of working for 10 minutes every day once out of the shower sounds WONDERFUL! For me, as a perfectionist and compulsive avoidant, two of the hardest things for me are: 1) starting small, and 2) consistency. I think consistency usually suffers precisely because I struggle with starting small. However, jogging and meditation are two examples of things I didn't think were possible for me that I've managed to incorporate into my life as the result of being willing to start with very short lengths of time, and very low expectations (even when they felt unacceptably low). I try to remember these successes that came with lowering the proverbial bar when I think I'll *never* overcome my procrastination, never be able to write a paper without tearing my hair out, etc. etc.
So basically, just wanted to say, congratulations on being here, and I support you!
All the best,
Thank you for your kind
Thank you for your kind words.
I have exactly the same problem. I just want too much, too soon. On top of that, half of the things I want, are not completely clear and mapped out, which I feel is a necessity.
It is really interesting - trying to change your life. It's one thing to just think about change or to picture it or to be driven to it by outside forces or some kind of miracle from within. But it is something else entirely to carve it out with your bare hands, bit by bit and to really make it happen.
The whole body is a mechanic organism, the result of an entire life of "successful" habits, thought patterns, ways to manage and surpress our feelings, beliefs, superstitions, convictions and values. If you want to change something your tool has to be a laser - a broom will never penetrate the granite.
The best for you, too,
