Chris Brogan is a friend, a super smart guy and has the goal to make things simpler in life. Today in his Sunday newsletter he shared this tidbit:
Use an accountability buddy. Instead of announcing what you WILL do, announce what you’ve done for the week. And keep a constant list.
I have a partner I’m accountable too. I give her encouragement, advice if ever needed, accolades and more. We talk about what is coming up and what we can do for each other. But we’ve never consistently shared what we’ve done for the week! She’s better at it than I am – I know how much weight she’s lost and what she’s eating. But I don’t share that with her – I mostly keep quiet, hoping her activity will somehow by osmosis happen to me too.
Time to change that — I’ll be speaking to her tonight and I’m going to ask that we set a schedule to talk, and that we both share what we’ve done for the week an keep an accounting of it!
