Get motivated by using Social Media

One of our employees was telling me today, how he uses Twitter to log his training for an upcoming Marathon. When I asked him why he uses Twitter, he said for “accountability mainly, but it also gives me the motivation I need”. Knowing that the information is public and that anyone could find it, gives him extra motivation to run faster and train more consistently.

This got me thinking. Our employee is motivated by competing with friends. So what motivates you? Is tracking goals and seeing the result enough or do you need some other form of motivation?
