Time is Ticking on 2018—Who is Holding You Accountable?
Accountability! There I said it. Some consider it a “bad” word that brings out negative feelings. Right now, you may be seeing visions of the principal’s office. That is not the accountability that increases your productivity. Accountability is a good thing. The more you swim in the pool of accountability, the more success you will have. The most important piece to the accountability puzzle is selecting the right partner. You know what you need to do to be successful, but often we let distractions along the way keep us from what needs to be done. To me, an accountability partner is like the blinders a racehorse wears to avoid distraction during a race. They are there to keep you focused on living and working in the present, and looking forward to the future. You will have less distractions and incompletes working with a partner. Your accountability partner can be your managing broker, another broker associate, a mentor or even a friend. It is crucial to be held accountable to make sure you are doing what is necessary to gain more business. If your accountability partner is not holding your toes to the fire, you will under-perform. Selecting the right partner is key to staying on track. It is important to establish your goals and make them visible. You have to see it to do it! Now you are on your way to tracking and measuring your results. Try an accountability partner today, and start feeling the motivation that comes with working hard in your business for yourself!
