Magnificent Monday - Using an Accountability Group to TAN

Magnificent Monday - it is magnificent to use an accountability group to TAN, Take Action Now.

 

On October 20, 2012 I attended PowerUP Weekend and one of the main things I took away from the conference was the idea of TAN, take action now. Each Magnificent Monday throughout the month of November has been dedicated to the idea of getting  to TAN -Take Action Now.  All over the world, there are people who have things they want to accomplish, goals they would like to reach and journeys they would like to make. There is one thing stopping them, a refusal to TAN, take action now. Previous Magnificent Monday articles in November have been about, why you should TAN,  using mind maps as a tool to TAN, and using vision boards as a tool to TAN. Today, the final Magnificent Monday of November is about using accountability groups to help you TAN.

Several of my Facebook friends became real life friends when we attended PowerUp Weekend together. At the conference we talked about forming an accountability group and using it to TAN in our own lives. My group is composed of Rachee Fagg who blogs at Say it Rah-shay  and Pamela Brown Margolis who blogs at The Unconventional Librarian Our accountability group is new and we are still working out the kinks, but I am hopeful. At the beginning of the month, we share three goals for the month. Each Sunday we share one thing we will do that week to work towards accomplishing each goal. Each Friday we report how we are did. I am hoping that having to report to the other ladies will force me move towards completing my goals.
Here are some ideas you can use to start an accountability group of your own:
1.      Keep the group small, no more than a handful of people
2.      Make a list of goals that are SMART (specific, realistic achievable, realitistic and time bound)
3.      Share your goals with your accountability group
4.      Make a plan for how often you will meet to share progress and spur each other on
5.      Participate in the group as if your life depends upon it, because when you think about it, it does
Acountability, encompasses the idea of being accountable, of having to answer to someone or something. As a result, members of an accountability group must answer to one another. Each member of an accountability group owes it to the other members of the group to work towards accomplishing her own goals. Each member also owes to other members of the group a duty to encourage each member to try to achieve her own goals. In other words, accountability groups are not for the lazy. However, team work makes the dream work. So, the question for you this Magnificent Monday is what goals would you like to establish an accountability group to help you accomplish?
