Step 7 of Building a Smarter Better Business

Do you find yourself setting goals but struggling to achieve them? Need accountability? A bit like a personal trainer for your business; find someone independent who’ll hold you to account and ensure you reach your endgame!

Get someone independent to hold you to account.

Have you ever set a New Year’s resolution and then reset the same one again the following year? So, how can we increase our chances of successfully achieving our goals? Accountability. 

The most fool proof way of ensuring you complete the actions you’ve committed to is to give someone nagging rights to follow you up. This may be your personal trainer at the gym who makes sure you show up at 6am, or it could be your accountant who checks in on you every 90 days to make sure you’re on track to completing your actions and achieving your goals. 

A soft coach will likely encourage soft results.

If you think about the type of coach a successful sports team would benefit from, would it be a hard coach or a soft coach? It’s no different in business. We all need someone with the backbone to hold us firmly to account and follow through on consequences for failure to act (‘give me 100 burpees!’). 

A soft coach, maybe a life partner or a friend, is likely to worry they’ll upset you if they nag about inaction. They’re likely to accept your excuses. Whereas a hard coach isn’t going to worry about hurting your feelings and they won’t accept excuses. That doesn’t mean they don’t have a heart. Great coaches have backbone and heart; they just care more about your results than your excuses. 

If you really want to achieve your goals, seek accountability from a coach who’ll console you after you’ve done the burpees, one who discourages inaction, and enables you to achieve. We can help.
