Action steps are worthless without a sense of accountability to complete them. Every day, the oversight of colleagues and clients helps us stay focused. In the mishmash of daily life, we must feel accountable in order to stay productive and push ideas forward.
However, at some point, supervision backfires. Especially in a creative environment, having a boss over your shoulder or constant nagging reminders will reduce your motivation. After all, we want to take pride in our own productivity. As such, the drive must start from within. But methods to support our drive for productivity are critical defenses in a world of TIVO, email, and countless other distractions.
