I am currently doing a group for decluttering and they are making such progress.
“Having someone to help you along the path of your goals is so important.” – Melissa
“A group helps to know I’m not alone, but also, quite unexpectedly, it makes me feel more determined to succeed in THEIR honor, or for their sake.” – Janet
“I have found that working alongside other people who are also tackling their goals has been supremely motivating for me. I feel inspired when I see/hear the successes of other group members and I feel excited to share my accomplishments with everyone. It’s much more interesting than working alone in my own little bubble and it’s fun to support and be supported!” – Janet W
“In Gretchen Rubin’s book, The Four Tendencies, I am classified as an Obliger. That means I’m someone who easily meets outer expectations but has trouble doing the things on my own to-do list. She suggests that having a system of outer accountability is a great way to meet my personal expectations. Beth’s various groups are the best method I’ve discovered for finding accountability partners who will help keep me on track so I can both start and complete projects. Thanks so much, Beth!” – Carol
I wanted to keep the progress going for them, so I thought we could have an accountability group from Nov. 1-Nov 30th.
I know there are things you had intended to do before the end of the year. Well there is still time!
“OK now I am going to create this habit.”
“I am going to finish this project.”
“I am going to exercise 3 times a week.”
“I am going to get dishes done every night.”
“I am going to finally finish this organizing project.”
“I am going to finally finish this craft project.”
2 days later you have already quit.
We all like to think that the promises we make to ourselves hold as much weight as promises made to others. That is what we’ve been told. Good, disciplined people don’t need anyone. When they say they are going to do something that do it. Even if they say it to themselves.
But, the vast majority of people I see accomplish so much more when they are held accountable by someone else. It’s just human nature.
I have my own accountability partner. We check in weekly to make sure we are on track with personal and business projects and habits. When a week goes by and I haven’t done any work on my ebook, she will ask me about it.
Trying to change on our own is usually less successful and frankly it makes it harder than it has to be.
The accountability group includes:
- Facebook group for accountability
- You can also schedule real time chat checkins and challenge sessions with others in the group in the private chat room
- I’ll be posting from my $10 Procrastination e-Course 5 days a week which I am updating.
The cost is $10 for the month so you have some skin in the game (Paying a little cash plus accountability = better chance of success).
What do you want to do by the end of the year?
