Accountability for your team and your business is vital, but it is just as vital you have the measures in place to hold yourself accountable. Accountability doesn’t have to be a challenge and through incorporating these four simple steps, you won’t have to think twice about it.
Write your to-do lists
Set out your daily goals first thing in the morning. Planning is going to be what sets you up for success. Be realistic with your goals and manage your expectations accordingly. Order your tasks from the highest priority to least and make sure you follow this order as practically as possible. By setting yourself goals for the day, you will be far more likely to meet these and maybe even exceed them.
Identify your purpose. One way to do this is by identifying your mission statement. It may change from day-to-day or it can simply be a personal motto. Give yourself a reason to be motivated and you will give yourself the means to be accountable.
Breaking down a moderately sized task into tiny chunks will keep you on track and accountable. It will also keep you from feeling overwhelmed. Through creating smaller goals, you will be able to more effectively manage your time and meet the deadlines you have set for yourself.
Review your performance
Ask yourself some simple questions:
“Have I achieved what I wanted to achieve today?”
“What can I do next time that will enable me to achieve these goals?”
If you truly want you to hold yourself accountable, you must be constantly reviewing your performance. Identify where you went wrong and acknowledge where you went right. Understanding where you need to improve will keep you on track and enable you to hold yourself more accountable.
