Sometimes we are not driven by work that may take longer to see an outcome. I will reiterate the reason behind this because it will stop you from being hard on yourself. A multi-passionate person is more likely to have lower dopamine levels than others so needs instant gratification. So in order to make the process of completing work so it is less painful, we need to create rewards. If you have been following along then you should have created rewards along the way of each project earlier. In order to also make sure this journey to project completion isn’t lonely I need you to take a risk, a calculated risk on yourself, by implementing accountability into your journey to project completion. Keep reading, I know you are up to the challenge!
Be accountable – The Activity
Now it’s time to put some processes in place for you to be accountable.
1. Create a mastermind group – do it on prIvate facebook group and combine it with skype calls
You only need one other person who is like-minded so you can check in with each other
Emphasise the urgency and importance of your project/goals
Invite others and tell them about your commitment on
2. Be specific regarding end results, time frames, and expected levels of effort What: What action needs to be taken?
Why: Link this action to the bigger picture so the person understands why they are important.
Who: No two-headed monsters here. Only one person can be accountable per action.
When: Be specific about when you want results– “next month” or “by second quarter” is not specific enough.
3. Implement the 3A’s
Agree on a plan for monitoring your effort as well as progress
Always acknowledge your good performance
Authorise your accountability partner to have the authority to challenge you
Questions to clarify with your accountability group/partner
* What does success look like to you?
* How often do I check in for follow up?
* What are the specific deadlines for milestones?
* What tools will I use to monitor my progress?
