Ok, I’ll start a group text. I often ignore WhatsApp texts but as C1 mentioned , standard texts are hard to ignore. Please DM me your number and I will set something before close of business


Sooo anyone actually interested?


I agree I think group text would be best! Plus if it’s on a social platform with other things (like IG or FB) then it’s easier to get distracted instead of study


lol I was going to post this


I am. What’s our plan? Start an online study group?


Hmm group text? Instagram group DM? I’m fine with anything. I don’t really use WhatsApp so might not be as effective. But maybe some sort of accountability group?

Quick update , I already created a group text and we’re currently 3 of us in the chat. Please DM me of you want to join the group.


Time to form a study group

Same! Would love for a study buddy/group

I’m down!

You can agree on a plan on here and DM one another with your personal contact to follow up.

I am down too. Let’s go all out and crack the exam

I think a WhatsApp group would be quite helpful for you guys. The platform allows you to share documents, make group calls, and even send voice messages.

There are other competitors to WhatsApp in the market; you can just pick anyone & get started.

Ok, so group text actually won’t work. With apple iMessage once you create a group text (with non iOS users in it) you cannot add more people to the chat. In our case, the more the merrier.

So I am going to create a WhatsApp group called GMAT Study Club.

Does this count only for GRE/GMAT studies? I'm trying to study for technical interviews and would like the camaraderie of a study group.

Is the group chat still open?

We have a WhatsApp group. Feel free to DM me to be added on to that grouo

Awesome! It would be great if you can periodically update this post about the progress. We’re all rooting for you.

Hi All, this probably sounds extremely dumb but need someone to keep me accountable to be very productive (I have trouble waking up and focusing). Anyone sailing the same boat?


How are y'all enforcing accountability?! I got a 'buddy' that is ready to work with me. But wondering how is it working with everyone.
Do y'all just message for check-ins or send motivational quotes or something else?


I’m almost 300 pounds. I lost weight and gained it all back and more. It would help me if I can get a buddy to keep tabs on me. I will do the same for you

Welcome! The purpose of this bowl is simple: keep posters accountable for the tasks they would like to have completed.

Step 1: Create a post regarding a goal you want to accomplish. Make it as (non)descriptive as you desire.
Step 2: Provide weekly update regarding the goal until it’s completed.

All incomplete posts with no update in 2 weeks will be removed.


Really need an accountability partner for a few things below:
1. Wake up at 5:30
2. Exercise everyday for at least a half hour
3. Eat more home-made balanced & nutritious meals & less takeout
4. Lose 8lbs
5. Meditate or journal every day

Current weight - 121lbs.
Desired weight - 112(like always)
Mood - tired & grumpy during the day cos of no sleep, bad sleep, bad food choices
Focus & productivity - absolutely failing cos of the above

Anyone interested? I can support you in your goals.
