One way to ensure that you’ll hit the gym every day at 6 a.m. is to have a workout buddy that’s expecting you. Making a promise to yourself and breaking it is one thing; disappointing a friend who woke up at 6 a.m. is another.
Our Mastermind Group has created small accountability groups within our larger group. These mini-accountability groups email every single Friday with updates on one big goal and give an update to the entire group at our monthly Mastermind meetings. Having the mini, weekly check-ins is a big help in keeping each person accountable. Seeing other members making major progress on their goals is exciting and inspiring. Additionally, a little bit of positive peer pressure is a good thing. Just like you don’t want to let your workout buddy down, losing the respect of your accountability group because of poor progress on achievable goals is unacceptable.
If you have a Mastermind Group, use Spring as a time to bring in this new practice to enhance your output and progress on your goals. If you don’t have a Mastermind Group, consider starting one … today.
