Accountability.

Something we give our members here at RISE.

And something nearly everyone that joins feels that they need more of.

And they are, perhaps, right.

To a point.

When it’s only us that will notice if we’ve done what we intended to, it’s very easy for it not to happen.

When we’re part of a group of like minded people on the same journey…….

When we have Coaches we know care and will check in with us…….

When we set a RISE Plan for the coming week (that takes into account that week’s challenges and makes it worthwhile but doable) and know we’ll be asked about at the end of the week……..

We’re more likely to do it.

When someone checks in with us every day?

It just becomes annoying.

We’ve either done what we intended to and get a bit irritated at having to report that every day.

Or we haven’t done it and get even more irritated.

From my experience, those that don’t engage with the current accountability systems and get results because of it……….

Don’t engage any more with more frequent check ins.

Daily accountability sounds great……..

Until we don’t do what we said we would.

It’s just annoying then.

Ultimately, if we have to be checked in with every day to see if we’ve done something…….

We don’t want to do it.

Or, at least, we’ve framed it in a way where we don’t want to do it.

Reframing that……

Setting a doable but worthwhile goal for the week that we know we’ll be asked about…….

Staying engaged (or re-engaging) with the group…….

Is, from our (considerable) experience, always going to get better results.

Much love,
