“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
– George Carlin
If you want better results in business – the key is making change and being more accountable to yourself to implement that change.
Procrastination, perfectionism, putting tasks off or putting them into the too-hard basket won’t serve you or your clients.
If it’s time for change, it’s time for atomic habits and accountability.
How to implement change in your business
Did you know: There are three layers of behavioral change? A change in your outcomes, a change in your processes, or a change in your identity.
When you want a particular result, it’s important to look at your “atomic habits” – a concept brought to life by James Clear.
He’s written a book on it, but essentially he says: “Outcomes are about what you get. Processes are about what you do. Identity is about what you believe”.
Want to know his recipe for sustained success?
1. Decide the type of person you want to be.
2. Prove it to yourself with small wins.
How do you be more accountable in business?
When it comes to being more accountable there is a process.
After you understand the changes you want to make and you make the decision to change the results in your business, it’s time to stay accountable to your decision.
You do this by:
Step 1: Establishing clear goals, KPIs and targets. Get very clear on what you want to achieve.
Step 2: Focus on the outcomes you want to see happen and work back from the future results. What can you be doing now to reach your goals? Create a new marketing and business plan with 90-day actions.
Step 3: Get help when you need it. In fact, studies show people with accountability partners stay on track to achieve their goals more quickly and have a higher rate of success.
3 Types of accountability you need in business
“The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that you have a 65 per cent chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95 per cent.” (Source: Observer.com)
There are 3 types of accountability, and you must use all three at various times.
- Self-accountability: Having self-accountability allows you to be in control of your business. When you are accountable to yourself, you make decisions based on the goals you have in place. You create opportunities to help you achieve these goals to reach the outcome you desire. Ultimately, you take responsibility for your actions.
- Group accountability: An accountability group is a group of people who support each other to reach their individual goals. The group regularly meets to work on their goals and get support, advice and help when they need it. Each person is accountable to help.
- Paid professional accountability: Paid accountability guarantees you reach your goals, because in essence you are paying someone, like a coach or mentor to help you stay accountable. While it is your job to remain self-accountable, paying a professional will mean you have an expert there, to support you when you need it and share knowledge and strategies to help you go above and beyond your goals.
