Dual responsibility in Asana

Asana is our task management software. I personally use it for all my various projects, including personal stuffs.  Today, Craig and I were splitting responsibilities for a number of tasks we want to do around Skore.

One of our objective is to write at least 2 articles a week on the blog; but we wanted to be both accountable of it. Obviously you can assign a task to only one person in Asana :

None of us is “more” accountable for this task, so we literally split the task in 2, and assigned each of us one task:

(We do not use subtasks for high level things because they are not visible directly)

Note the due date : obviously this is an ongoing thing, but we thought we could give it a go for 6 weeks and see how we perform.

On the question why we should force ourselves to publish content, it’s inspired by this tale on Derek Sivers’ website : 50 pounds of pots.
