Do you ever feel like taking a break from the heavy lifting?
The reason I ask is because we’re up to our 4th video installment of our 6-video series, based on the behavior acronym that we talk about and use in our training academy called ‘Do Care’.
And today is ‘A’ for ‘accountability’, which is about really understanding that when we have accountability around my actions, we get more done.
What I’ve come to observe in myself and others is that we start out ok – clear on the vision of what we want and then we trek along, making progress.
This is until something stops us. Typically, what stops us is that we don’t know how to do something.
However, instead of continuing to figure it out, we head away from our straight line and start researching how to do that something, and before we know it we’re down a facebook rabbit-hole; and we’re off into procrastination.
I know I’ve wasted days, weeks, even months on projects when I’ve encountered the same.
So, what’s the antidote? Well, it’s don’t look for the how; look for who. 1
Who do you know who knows how to do it, so that you can tap into their expertise?
Who can you recruit into your dream team?
Maybe it’s the right person for the accounting, legal, or marketing issue…whatever it is.
Because there’s always a way to bring someone onto your team. Even when you think you can’t afford it, you can figure out a way. Bringing them on as a partner or bartering can be a start.
Take a break from the heavy lifting, and find the who, so you can find accountability and get on with it.
That’s what our training academy is about; breaking it down into steps and getting support for what that looks like.
And if you’ve just come across this blog (or the vlog version), it’s not about you understanding how to do everything, it’s about creating it through who you bring onto your team.
Message me to chat about it. It’s exactly what we’re here for.
Ciao for now
1It’s imperative to realize that it’s not possible for us to do everything or know everything. However, we can practice reaching out to people who do: “Whatever or whoever it is, reach out and start asking for what you need. Once you take the initiative, you’ll typically find that people are willing to help and resources are available. And leaning on that knowledge is a much better alternative than trying to do it all on your own.” Asking in this way can increase our commitment to stay on course to reach our goals.
