Do you have an accountability partner? What does that really mean in today’s world?
The Merriam-Webster definition of accountability is an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions. Wikipedia defines an accountability partner as a person who coaches another person to help them keep a commitment.
Are you trying to achieve a goal or make a lifestyle change? Have you tried doing it on your own just to feel miserable, exasperated and exhausted, AGAIN?
There is hope.
Making change takes commitment to get outcomes.
What is the milestone you want to achieve, right now?
Do you need support to move forward? Depending on the intention, there are many ways, shapes, sizes, and styles of accountability to choose from these days.
- Wearable technology
- Groups (online and in person)
- And of course, keeping yourself on track
I’ve always been a self-starter, however, I still need the accountability in business, personally and spiritually. The business mastermind group I participate in helps stir up the creative juices, ideas and action I need for momentum. I have a tremendous group of friends and family who communicate honestly with me, even when the going gets tough. They are also caring and encouraging. The spiritual direction group keeps me grounded to what is important and the reminder that God is in control.
And then there is the digital world. What would I do without my Google calendar, reminders, and iphone? It’s crazy (or is it?) how we become so attached to our favorite digital apps to keep life rolling along!
