About “A Year of No Excuses”

About the Project

If you’re like most of my friends, you’re successful, hard working, and dedicated to growing and getting the most out of life.  You’re committed to team building and want to leave an impact on the world by helping others… but you’re wondering how to get your message out there.

Year of No Excuses is a self-directed graduate project using social media to provide accountability and support in goal setting.  I believe that building a community of servant leaders dedicated to personal growth helps all of us develop our individual gifts to help others to boldly declare their purpose and to take action to pursue their goals.

Social Media, Accountability, & Support

Why social media?  Social media is a great way to connect with others.  While there are lots of negative people in this world, there are also lots of positive people who are looking to connect and support each other!

Accountability & support.  Excuses sound really convincing to those who are making them up.  It’s also easy to put off taking action when nobody else knows you’re working toward something.  It’s a lot tougher to hide when people are asking you about your progress.  By documenting the pursuit of goals in a public manner, we can establish accountability (or find people to call us out on our BS) and also get some support.  It’s tough to make changes, but even tougher if you don’t have a support system.  If you are in need of a supportive community, please join the discussion in our Facebook group.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
