7 Ways Animators Can Stay Accountable To Their Goals

1. Commit to your schedule.

Commit to your schedule.

Part of achieving deadlines is committing to a schedule. Determining the goal is not enough. To get there, you have to go through a system and stick to an effective routine until you obtain that goal. If it doesn't get scheduled, it doesn't get done.

2. Find an accountability partner.

Find an accountability partner.

Find someone that will hold you to account. This could be a family member, a friend, a colleague, a mentor, your co-worker, or a group of people in your field. This is great for making sure you stay on track and continue taking action.

3. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals with them.

Set S.M.A.R.T. goals with them.

It's good to be optimistic in planning your goals or envisioning your dreams, but incorporate a good deal of realism into it as well. Remember, goals should be specific, measurable, actionable, relevant, and time-bound.

4. Don't be overambitious.

5. Incentivise or penalize yourself.

Incentivise or penalize yourself.

These two methods are good old mental tricks that can boost your motivation and shape your action towards different situations. Celebrate little wins or reward yourself if you get it right. You can also plan your own consequences if you wish.

6. Review your progress and reflect from it.

Review your progress and reflect from it.

Take the time to regularly review and reflect on how you're doing. Take note of the things you need to improve on, any specific observations you need to remember, etc.

7. Take action.

Take action.

Now that you're done reading this, stop procrastinating and start getting things done! Good luck!
