Who holds you accountable?
I have been thinking about this for a few weeks. I read a quote which read:
“If you want something that you have never had; It stands to reason, that you must do something that you have never done”!
The above got me thinking. If you were going to run an important race, you would get a coach, or personal trainer, right?. Helping you you to do the thing that you have never done, so you can have that which you have not achieved.
The trainer in the example above is holding you accountable to yourself. Looking out for you, ensuring you are staying on track (pardon the pun), to reach your target.
In other aspects of you life you have a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (or a BHAG). This is something that, at the end of your life, you want to be able to say I DID IT! So, the question is this: If your goal is so important to you, who holds you accountable?
I am growing a network marketing business. The reason I’m doing this is to be able to be able to see my Grand children (when the day comes). Whenever and wherever they are! The thought of one of them calling for me and I couldn’t get there, wakes me up in a cold sweat!
To achieve my goal, I need to help people. As a direct result, the more I help, the bigger my business grows. Now, with the subject of this blog in mind, I have decided to change from goal setting to goal achieving. I have asked those around me to hold me accountable.
- I have set a goal.
- Written it down (On our fridge).
- Told my Daughter and my Wife, the goal I have set.
- Rolled up my sleeves.
The people around me love me and will push me to achieve that which I haven’t done. Look around you. Set a goal. Write it down. Tell someone who wants the best for you. report back to them.
I will feed back at the end of the week, how I did with my goal.
