Increase Your Follow-Through — How Accountability Buddies Help

Dr. Seuss Quote

Increase your-follow through and do great things…

When you increase your follow-through you increase your effectiveness, and that is always time well spent.

That’s because as your effectiveness grows, your productivity and your confidence increase, too. It’s a positive spiral that will have you eager to stretch, set goals, and enjoy new accomplishments.

And it all starts when you increase your follow-through.

How an accountability buddy helps:

Do you currently have a project that’s been hovering in the back of your mind but you just can’t seem to get off the ground? The longer you wait the more your sense of effectiveness erodes.  So, to get unstuck and move back on track, I recommend that you consider lining up an accountability buddy. Sometimes, that extra bit of support makes all the difference between stalling out and sailing across the finish line.

Old, unhelpful patterns often come to the surface when you feel isolated, lack confidence or simply dislike what needs doing. This sabotages your productivity and effectiveness. And that’s exactly where scheduling regular check-ins with your accountability buddy helps.

When you check in with another person, you are more likely to see and counteract private rationalizations and distractions. This simple step helps you increase your follow-through. And in turn, this increases your effectiveness, productivity, and confidence.

Having an accountability buddy helps countless people remain on course every day.

Increase Your Follow-Through With An Accountability Buddy

Starting off with a clear set of guidelines works wonders, so here are 7 timely tips to  keep in mind as you embark on this journey:

2.      Break down your goal into daily action steps.

3.      Discuss the best way to check in — by email, phone, or in person.

4.      Keep to your check-in schedule. Daily check-ins are generally most effective.

5.      Work within the agreed upon time frame with a simple phone or email check-in.
