Have Epic Goals? Here’s How to Stay Motivated

In “How to Maintain Motivation When Your Goals Are Epic,” Fast Company‘s Grace Nasri asked several entrepreneurs with pretty huge missions about how they stay motivated. Folks like Arianna Huffington, NASA’s Bobak Ferdowsi, and our very own Leah Busque doled out some lessons from the front lines. From keeping things in perspective to keeping passion at the center of all you do, these tips are at once inspirational and actionable. We hope you take a few moments to read this article today. Call us partial, but we particularly loved Leah’s approach to staying motivated: “I wake up every morning with a singular goal —to push my company as far as I can that day. My company is dedicated to solving a pretty huge problem, and it can be overwhelming to think of the magnitude of this vision. My approach is to choose specific and actionable items to complete each day to move us closer to these goals, and to encourage everyone on my team to do the same. This keeps us on track for accomplishing …

Tasking the SF Street Food Festival

This weekend, 80,000 people descended upon San Francisco’s Mission district for some good eats, cool drinks, and really (really) long lines. We’re talking about the SF Street Food Festival, and Team TaskRabbit was out in force. We set up shop near the entrance to the main beer garden to chat people up about Deliver Now, our exclusive-to-San Francisco delivery feature. The response, to say the very least, was extremely enthusiastic. Especially when we mentioned attendees could use Deliver Now to have any food at the festival delivered to them in the beer garden — no waiting in lines needed. We teamed up with eight of our favorite vendors (including Wise Sons Jewish Deli and The Créme Brûlée Cart) to give people an on-site Deliver Now experience. Did you miss the festival? Don’t worry, we’re happy to bring any of San Francisco’s famed street food right to you. Just download the latest version of our app and tell the scooter TaskRabbit what you want to eat. We’ll track it down (even if it’s on wheels) and …

The TaskRabbit Credo

Our mission is to connect busy people with entrepreneurs who can help them get things done. In the process, we’re bringing back that old time neighborhood spirit. In celebration of these incredible entrepreneurs who are the heroes of the TaskRabbit community, we’re thrilled to introduce the TaskRabbit Credo. This statement is a living document that reflects the spirit and mission of what it is to be a TaskRabbit. The TaskRabbit Credo We’re entrepreneurs. We decide when we want to work and how much we want to bid for each Task. We master every single Task because we love to make TaskPosters say “wow.” If things go wrong, we make them right. We’re awesome communicators because being that way makes every Task better. We know how to listen and ask the right questions, and TaskPosters love us for it. We think creatively to solve little problems before they become big problems. We’re trustworthy, not just because we’ve been vetted through formal channels, but because we’re dedicated professionals on a mission. We’re part of the movement working …
