MY SOCIAL CONTRACT

A Social Contract happens when a person uses social media to publicly declare his goals. Basically you hold yourself accountable to your entire network on what you want to happen for your life over a period of time. I know blogger memes are passe already but that’s because I believe that most of the memes going around don’t add value and there’s just no point in doing them. This activity is more than just a meme, it’s a goal-setting experience that hopefully will help steer our life towards a better direction in the next few months and years. Just like what a lot of speakers say “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” With that said, here are the mechanics of the meme and my own social contract.

1. Establish short term (next 2 years) and long term goals (10 years) for your life quadrant.
2. The life quadrant is based on 4 major pillars: health, spirituality, career, and relationships.
3. Be as specific as possible with your goals. Put numbers.
4. Tag at least 5 bloggers who you want to be your accountability buddies and ask them to do the same as well.
