Several times in the last 3 or 4 years I ran an online `goal setting, achieving and exceeding` group. We did it my e-mail some times and by `forum` other times.
My experience has been that people like to talk about their goals, and like to work towards them, but when it comes time to be help `aco c**t able` they create excuses and then disappear.
Being accountable is hard work, and so few people will step up and take it on the chin when they are not `on course`.
If you are to form a peer group, I so so so SO reccomend that you only do it `in person`. Anything done `virtually` will almost always fail, and at no fault of your own.
In fairness, let me edit my last paragraph a touch...all of my past efforts have come from forming groups inside `Self Help` communities, like Tony Robbins` group for example. Perhaps the colleagues you meet here at SUN will be more driven and will take this type of project more seriously?
I don`t want to pass judgement on the idea or any group of peers you collaborate with. I am just sharing some feedback based on my own experiences. I always went into the project with great expectations, and every time was let down by my peers` lack of ambition after several weeks.
I would be happy to share more specifics, without boring the rest of the group or sounding `negative` (I still work on my goals almost daily. Even `I` slack some times! But I always come back to it, and quickly.). PM me if you`d like...
