Tuesday Tip: Procrastinating on Your Goals? Get a New “Boss”
Whether you’re on a new diet, upholding a New Year’s resolution, or even dealing with day-to-day tasks, we all know that holding yourself accountable can be difficult. Setting goals can be effective, as well as having an accountability partner you can rely on to help push things forward.
Boss As a Service (bossasaservice.life) allows you to pay for a boss, as ironic as that sounds. This service allows you to submit your to-do list, and once you’ve completed a task, you send them (real human beings) proof of doing so. However, if you do not complete the task, you are subjected to non-stop nagging.
This could be good for an extreme procrastinator, someone who generally works better under pressure, or anyone who works independently.
What’s the Cost?
Boss As a Service offers two simple packages, $25/month and $60/3 months.
According to the FAQ section of their website, you can cancel your membership whenever you like. In fact, if you stop using the service or stop responding, they claim to cancel the membership for you.
I can see this being very beneficial for ambitious goals, such as preparing for a marathon or passing the bar exam. Just be aware that this service will not tell you how to achieve your goals. For the service to be successful, you must first know where you want to go and what steps it takes to get there. Once you have that figured out, this service can help hold you accountable.
