Sunday Update: Accountability Partners

Chris Brogan is a friend, a super smart guy and has the goal to make things simpler in life.  Today in his Sunday newsletter he shared this tidbit:

Use an accountability buddy. Instead of announcing what you WILL do, announce what you’ve done for the week. And keep a constant list.

I have a partner I’m accountable too.  I give her encouragement, advice if ever needed, accolades and more.  We talk about what is cshopping listoming up and what we can do for each other.  But we’ve never consistently shared what we’ve done for the week!  She’s better at it than I am – I know how much weight she’s lost and what she’s eating. But I don’t share that with her – I mostly keep quiet, hoping her activity will somehow by osmosis happen to me too.

Time to change that — I’ll be speaking to her tonight and I’m going to ask that we set a schedule to talk, and that we both share what we’ve done for the week an keep an accounting of it!

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re wornkig with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Thank you, I appreciate it!
