Despite being a coach myself and understanding the value of accountability, I am also probably as bad as anyone else at keeping myself accountable.
Despite every tool available to me, sometimes the keeping track just seems to take up too much time – time I want to spend moving on to the next week, project, client…
If this sounds like you, too, here’s a quick checklist to use to keep yourself aligned to your goals. Fill it in every Friday afternoon to keep you focused.
- Top 3 tasks to be completed next week to bring me closer to my goals.
- Top 3 tasks I completed this week (including the goal(s) they relate to)
- Who I met this week (include current, prospective and past clients; centres of influence; staff; alliance partners)
Use a quick ‘check in’ like this and I guarantee you will make progress. Read it and don’t act on it, I guarantee you will find it hard to keep yourself – or anyone else – accountable.
Let me know how you go!
