What Is Accountability?
What does accountability mean? Is it surveillance and invasion of privacy? Or unwarranted criticism and finding fault? Or even probation and punishment for when you mess up? No, accountability should not look like any of these.
Instead, accountability is the quality of taking personal responsibility for your decisions and actions by sharing relevant details about your life with a trusted partner so you can build excellence in all areas of life.
The mindset of an accountable person pursues self-improvement.
You Are Responsible
The mindset of an accountable person pursues self-improvement. You recognize and embrace the fact that you are responsible for you. You have an appetite for growth and you realize how trusted partners can help you move forward down the path of success.
Accountability Means Commitment
By sharing relevant details about your life, you will find a higher commitment to do what you said you would do. You take action steps knowing that a trusted partner will ask you about your progress.
The accountability relationship focuses on the commitment to be achieved. Sure, you will experience ups and downs along the path. But you and your partner bring the proper perspective on your successes and failures, you implement solutions, and you always keep the desired end in sight.
