Principles

The hard science behind incredible productivity.

Everything we do here at Commit Action is rooted in science. Below are the four simple and overwhelmingly evidenced drivers of productivity which we’re built to help you implement, plus research-backed assertions for each principle (and citations).

Accountability

  1. Connectedness with others and social accountability is an essential condition for intrinsic motivation in Self-Determination Theory.
  2. Ongoing accountability support increases the probability of goal accomplishment to 95 percent.
  3. Just the knowledge of the possibility of impending accountability check ins increases positive behaviors by 50%
  4. Virtual, weekly accountability check-ins conducted by skilled facilitators more than doubles adherence to plans to achieve goals.
  5. Accountability is so powerful because it is an evolutionary trait that has evolved over millions of years that gives human beings the unique ability to dominate the planet.

Specificity

  1. Difficult goals, when they’re stated with clear specificity, consistently lead to higher performance.
  2. Specificity optimized goals always outperform, are more unconsciously motivating and build mastery faster than purely focusing on the long term.
  3. Balancing big picture vs ultra-detailed goals is a skill that actually improves self control, correlating with higher earning potential, better health and even better relationships.

Measurement

  1. Measurement invokes self-awareness, which inspires us to perform at our best.
  2. For goals to be effective, people need to measure progress in relation to their goals.
  3. Measuring—and staying conscious of—your progress against an intended goal activates the insula region of your brain when you deviate, which correlates with motivation to get back on track.

Deadlines

  1. Adding a specific intention to take action at a precise time more than doubles the likelihood of a goal being accomplished.
  2. The skillful ability to plan one’s work across time correlates with better performance in every measure, regardless of field.
  3. Deadlines actually help people be more flexible, resist distraction and achieve more (than just executing in a wide open schedule).

FAQs

Commit Action coaches are experts in behavioral psychology and productivity. Their main focus is facilitating a weekly planning ritual in your life and business.

At Commit Action, we believe that most entrepreneurs know—deep in their bones—what they should be doing. And they know where to go to find out what to do, in the rare event they get stuck. The key is to keep taking action. To keep moving forward. To execute.

So if you are looking for someone to tell you precisely and exactly how to grow your business and market your products, then you’ll have to look elsewhere.

But if you want to take consistent action on your highest leverage opportunities, this is for you.

Our coaches will ask the questions and create the structure that gets you moving on your best ideas. The best business strategy comes from learning through experience, and our science based approach accelerates that process—making you more self-reliant and confident.

Note: All this being said, our Commit Action coaches are extremely intelligent individuals who have each logged thousands of hours of client work, and spoken with hundreds of entrepreneurs in over 60 different countries.

From elite startup founders to aspiring bootstrap entrepreneurs, they’ve worked with people in hundreds of niches. With this much experience, our coaches inevitably have a lot of valuable reference points related to business strategy and resources that they can pull from.

Again, our coaches are NOT expected to provide business strategy, so do not expect them to do so. However, practically speaking, they may be able to provide valuable tips and pointers on a case by case basis, should the opportunity arise.

No. Commit Action is month-to-month (or year-to-year if you choose to pay annually and benefit from a 20% discount). There are no setup fees, cancellation fees, or long term contracts. You can quit at any time. We also offer a 30-day money back guarantee on both monthly and yearly plans, so you are safe to try the service out risk free. There is absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.

The weekly calls are designed to be quick; a “minimum viable dose”. This follows the behavioral science principle that you maximize long term results by making the behavior that drives them easy.

New customers would surely love to spend two hours really diving into our system, planning out their week to a level of outrageous precision. But how many weeks could they feasibly keep that up?

By optimizing for consistency with a tightly focused 20-minute ritual, we’ve created a proven methodology for incrementally increasing your personal effectiveness… with results that compound over time.

Commit Action customers who keep the ritual going for a year become unrecognizable to their former selves: they transform into execution powerhouses.

All our coaches are expertly trained to be flexible about applying our methodology across diverse client types. Commit Action works because of our evidence-based methodology, not because of the specific personality fit between you and your coach.

So it shouldn’t be an issue (and never has been for 99.9% of our customers). That said, if you really feel like you and your coach are not the right fit, we’re happy to match you up with a new coach =)

No. Because Commit Action membership isn’t some cheap online course or community. Every member gets a one-to-one working relationship with one of our highly-trained, US based coaches. This doesn’t come cheap, which means we can’t give away free memberships – we’ve gotta pay our people.

However, we do offer a satisfaction guarantee, valid for the first 30 days of your membership.

We’re confident that you’ll find Commit Action so game-changingly effective, that you’ll never look back.

If that’s not the case for you, just contact our support team at any point in the first 30 days of your membership and we will give you a full refund on your first month’s membership fee, no questions asked.

We make our coaching calls to landlines & mobile numbers worldwide. If you prefer to use another method like Skype or Zoom, we can be flexible, but we do not do video calls.

“Zoom Fatigue” is real and our coaches and you will spend your calls visually engaging with our proprietary planning software. Looking at tasks and plans beats staring at each other in terms of practical usefulness.

The first step after sign up will be booking in your initial deep-dive onboarding call with your coach. You’ll have a wide range of days and times (usually starting from about 8 business hours in the future!) to choose from.

Then at the end of your onboarding call, your coach will find a recurring time for your weekly ritual call together that works for you.

Please note, our coaches are US based, and availability is within normal working hours for US time zones. So just check how your time zone overlaps with EST / PST for an idea of what times will be open to you.

Yes, all your interactions with your dedicated one-to-one Commit Action coach are considered 100% privileged and confidential. Your information is NEVER shared outside of Commit Action Inc. We have a lot of serious entrepreneurs doing important work on our platform, and protecting their trade secrets, intellectual property and personal information is one of our paramount priorities.

We share the standard marketing data and analytics that most smart companies do – you can read our privacy policy for more information on that. The actual data you share with us related to your plans, tasks, and schedule are never ever shared.

No, we have a lot of people who are just starting businesses, as well as clients who are creatives and executives doing other stuff. You can use Commit Action to help you excel in any area or endeavor that you want.

As a premium service, we generally like to work with clients where there is a clear return-on-investment for the fee they pay us for our support. If you have ambition, autonomy, and a path to long term reward then we can help you make your big plans happen.

Commit Action is a human powered, software-enhanced service. In other words, the core of our service is human based, but we developed a fully-fledged web application to be the backbone of your weekly planning ritual.

Aside from the cognitive benefits of a consistent planning ritual, part of joining Commit Action is about outsourcing your “productivity admin” to a pro.

So our software is primarily a tool to help your coach take those difficult and repetitive parts of planning your week off your plate.

You just dump all your disorganized thoughts, ideas, and to-dos into the app, and your coach will help you prioritize, flesh out what’s important, and carve out specific time to get it done.

Then that action plan can be automatically synced with your preferred calendar system such as Google, Outlook, or Apple.

The app also helps your coach track your results. Over time you’ll build a personal behavioral database, so you can understand your own pattern of what has worked best, and how to improve in the future.

No, you are free to use whatever todo list software you’re currently using. Our productivity tracking software works in parallel. It is a tool our coaches use to plan, track, and optimize your progress over time—and it’s especially focused on High Leverage Work. You can continue to use your own software or planning tools but you can login anytime to view your progress over time.
