Integrate accountability into your goals and get results!
When you have a goal you’re trying to reach, it helps to have a nudge to get started. By sharing goals or priorities with someone else, you’re less likely to procrastinate action. Knowing someone may ask you about your progress is often just enough to start the ball rolling. When you commit to someone else the steps you’re taking you’re more likely to stick to that plan.
When you share your goals with someone else you create energy and momentum to follow through. You’ll keep at it and work through challenges. An accountability partner or coach is a highly effective way to increase your productivity – personally and professionally. If you don’t already have an accountability partner, think about someone you could ask. An Accountability Partnership is a two-way relationship (in return, you hold them accountable for what they’re working on). It’s a win for them, as well.
