It's hard to stick with things in isolation. Put the wind at your back with the group dynamics of Pacing Thing.

How it works

  1. Join or start a group of learners.
  2. Groups have assignments specified by the group organizer, with deadlines.
  3. Do the assignments individually and post your work to the group page.
  4. Miss too many and you get kicked out!

It works like magic and it's fun. Our community has been using this system for 2 years.


  • Write a song per week for a year
  • Draw daily for 4 weeks
  • Practice tying knots every day for 2 weeks
  • Identify a species of bird each day
  • Read a book every month and report
  • Exercise daily

How to make a group

1. Set up a series of assignments

Use a pre-built series in the catalog or just start entering assignments.

2. Invite friends to join

Any number, from 1 to 1000.

3. Group members submit their work

Members post a photo, audio, text or screenshot evidence that they completed the assignment.

4. If someone misses too many deadlines, they're automatically removed

It's all in good fun though. Those who strike out can join for the next round of the group if you set one up!
