Forgive me if this topic has been posted elsewhere, I’m a new member here.
Has anyone ever set up an online accountability buddy system?
I’m looking for a buddy to check in with each other and keep each other on task. These could be work goals, learning a new hobby, getting chores done, or whatever. Sometimes the thing you really need to stay focused is the threat of another person’s judgement! 🙂
For me, I need someone to make sure I’ve completed my daily or weekly to-do list at the office. Currently I can sit at my desk for 8 hours and somehow in that time only send out 2 e-mails. The result is that I feel wretched at the end of each day. This pattern has led me to jump from job to job before my boss can discover how little I’m actually getting done. Traditional therapy, while it has it advantages, has not helped me manage my productivity.
For you, I’d love to help you with whatever goal you’re working on! I can offer a lot of encouragement but also be super strict if that’s what you need.
Anyone who’s interested in this idea, let me know your thoughts!

Thanks! I sent the OP there a message on Habitica, doesn’t look like she’s been active on the forum since the post so let’s see. Still, if anyone else is interested, message me!

I am interested in an online accountability buddy as well and looking for someone to team up with so we can follow up on each others and keep ourselves motivated. I live in Australia and looking so reach out to me if time difference is not an issue for you.

Hi, I’m also a new member, usually just drop in randomly but signed up to say that I’m also interested in joining a small accountability group. I tried the habitica app a while back but didn’t last more than a couple days on my own. I’m in the states but am open to figuring out something workable with the time difference.

maha and featherball: Great!!
I wonder if there is a way for us to safely exchange contact info.
FeatherBall: There is messaging on Habitica, you can find me there under JulesMng and we could perhaps exchange e-mail addresses?
Or does anyone know of another way beyond posting our e-mail addresses here?

Great! I sent you a message on habitica. I also sent a message to the original poster in the linked message above. Hoping we figure something out!

I read through the posts and this sounds like what I’m looking for. Has anyone “buddied-up” yet? Let me know if not as I could really use a buddy!!

Hey mgogreen, has anyone reached out to you yet? I found this thread because I was searching for an adhd accountability group. If you are still interested in an accountability buddy, let me knoknow!

aslikeanarnian and mgogreen,
If either of you are still looking for accountability partners I would be interested in finding one as well. We could contact one another on discord? I also have a habitica. I’m willing to check up on another person daily if they feel it’s necessary.

Hey Alia! I am definitely still looking for an accountability buddy. Discord is perfect for me – my username there is aslikeanarnian#7693 if you want to send me a direct message there.
October 7, 2020 at 4:14 am #185015ADistractedDamselParticipant
Yeah! I sent you a discord friend request. Same name but my number is 0122.

Hello all- I’m interested in this too! If it’s happening somewhere may I join? It sounds just what I need to get myself started up again…

I’ve gotten in touch with a few people and am setting up a Zoom group call to discuss our symptoms and set accountability goals!
