I have a small group of friends I meet with weekly over a group conference call to set goals and check in on our progress. We each have our own individual goals, but together we report on how those goals are progressing.
The thing I appreciate most about our accountability group is that we are achieving, maintaining and prioritizing the things in our lives that are most important to us: our family, spouse, spiritual development, personal health and more. What it boils down to is that we are being intentional about cultivating our top priorities.
It’s commonplace to give priority to the things that are most pressing or urgent in our lives and too often it comes at the expense of the people and things that should be most important. I love that I have a system in place to help me prioritize and maintain that which is my top priority. I want that for you too.
Just before Christmas my accountability group and I were interviewed for a podcast with Jen VanHekken. Be sure to listen to it here. It went live today, just in time for the New Year! What a perfect season to grab a few friends and start a group.
On the podcast we talked all about goal setting and how we encourage each other to accomplish those goals. What I really hope is that you feel inspired to start your own accountability group. To help you out, I’ve written a step by step guide with all the details on how to do it. The link is at the bottom of this post. In fact it’s at the bottom of all my posts! That’s how important I think this content is for you.
