“Accountability Buddy” – Pair up to Maintain Focus!
Studies show that writing down and sharing your goals with another person dramatically increases the likelihood of you successfully meeting the goal. Let’s face it, it’s pretty easy to get “slippery” and not do something that nobody knew you intended to do. However, for some it is hard to share their goals with their loved ones.
“When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates”
Accountability buddies are one of the best ways to help motivate you to stay focused. People hire accountability partners all of the time to help them grow. Personal Trainers, and Life Coaches are two examples of such a principle. By having someone to keep you accountable you can make significant progress. Finding an accountability buddy for your goals is equally effective.
The best way is to find a friend who is as goal minded as you are. You want your friend to be serious about personal growth. Have the both of you sit down together and form an accountability partnership. An effective goal setting partnership meets regularly. You probably want to meet once a week and report to each other on your progress toward your goals. During this meeting you let each other know how you did last week and what you plan to commit to the next week. If you are dragging your feet, it is the partner’s responsibility to give you a kick in the rear.
