My three older kids are all a little bit pre-teeny at the moment.

They’re 10, 11 and 12 and, shall we say, are a bit more moody than they were a few years ago.

I’m sure the challenges of COVID haven’t helped either to be honest!

My stepdaughter is quite variable at the moment.

Sometimes absolutely delightful, sometimes seemingly disgusted by my very existence.

Zero response when I try and talk to her.

Then a feigned confusion when I call her on this – pretending she hadn’t heard me.

We don’t like people ignoring us do we?

But we’re often guilty of it ourselves.

When people join us, one of the things they express they feel they need is “accountability”.

And then, when we attempt to contact them when they haven’t done what they said they would………

They don’t reply.

Sometimes ever.

I can show you whole chat threads where I can see people have seen dozens of my messages, videos, etc from the notifications in the corner………..

And haven’t responded.

Ever.

Now I get it.

We rarely consciously think we’re ignoring people.

Maybe tell ourselves we’ll get round to this when we’re “not so busy”.

The thing about accountability though…………

Is it’s a two way street.

We can’t “hold someone accountable”………….

If they aren’t ‘able’ (or willing) to ‘account’ for themselves.

Head in the sand………

Fingers in the ears going “Nah, nah – I can’t hear you”………..

Like a grumpy teenager hiding in our room………

Doesn’t help us.

I always say to new members that, from my experience, the biggest difference maker…………

Between those that get amazing, life changing results………..

And those that………

Don’t…………

Is staying engaged.

It’s not always easy.

Hard and frustrating at times.

We won’t always be making the progress and doing the things that we would like.

But we can always stay engaged.

We can always respond.

That’s just a choice.

Much love,

Jon ‘Twice engaged’ Hall
