Ask Kelly

Ask a friend or loved one to support your efforts.
2. Have an accountability partner. Perhaps someone you see at trainings, or a work buddy.
3. Set SMART goals (specific, measurable, actionable, realistic and time-based). Then measure your results against them.
4. Reward yourself. Make it really fun or pleasurable to achieve what you commit to!
5. Work with a coach. A coach will remind you of your vision and commitments, and help explore your roadblocks to action.
6. Create or join a “nag” group or a “dream circle”—any group of people you report to regularly.
7. Keep accurate records and have others review them. For example, a bookkeeper could keep you accountable for producing monthly financials.
8. Put money on it. You’ll get really serious!
9. Publicly declare. Now your public reputation is riding on your word.
10. Establish heinous consequences. Donate to an organization whose activities you abhor if you do NOT follow through on your commitment.
