Want to Know How to Complete Your Goals? Get anAccountabilityPartner
Sometime last year I was reading a random blog (sorry, but I can't remember the author) and she mentioned the term "accountability partner." I didn't have to ask what it meant because it immediately made sense to me.
So much sense that I commented on this post by throwing my line into the water and asking: "Would anyone like to be my accountability partner."
I didn't think anyone would notice - but someone did. Her name is Deb McNeil, a Ft. Worth agent, and she was up for the challenge. So here we were, two complete strangers but with a shared goal: figuring out to stop procrastinating and get things done.
After a few pleasantries we got to work - we decided I would call her on Monday mornings. During this Monday call we tell each other one thing we wanted to accomplish that week. On Fridays afternoons, she would call me and we discuss if we had completed the task.
So simple and yet so effective. We have both marveled over how we are actually getting things done. Usually these tasks are ones that we have put off, things we didn't really like doing. Suddenly, the mild tension of having someone check on your progress put our gears into forward motion.
In December Deb confronted a serious health condition that needed to be dealt with. We stopped our weekly business chats but when she got better, she was raring to go. We have picked up exactly where we left off and I am so pleased that she's back. I'm extremely glad she's healthy but, boy, it seems like nothing got done there for a while!
I HAVE PUT OFF DEALING WITH VIDEO FOR YEARS. So this week . . . I told Deb that my task would be to film a video, write a post, and make it public. And I simply and unequivocally knew that I would get it done. I had told Deb I would do it. Funny how the mind works. That video is done and public - whew!!
Let me say this again: I probably would not have bothered to work on it without telling my partner that I was going to do it.
I would encourage any of you to try this - it takes very little time and the results are amazing. I wish losing weight were this easy. Go ahead, comment here, ask if anyone would like to partner up with you. This magic potion work wonders.
PS: I just went to Deb's blog to grab her photo - you should read her latest post:
